Actually, I think that Quirk Parity - programmers.stackexchange.com/a/260032/13421 - is closer to the original question. Skeuomorph's a more of a design aesthetic than programming.

comment Best way to indicate more results available
out of interest - how would the caller then specify they want "more"? how would the service differentiate between the initial and "more" calls?

comment Why are <section>, <header> and <footer> tags not used much when I see sites that are in HTML 5?
Examples? Many sites just use templates, and they may not have been updated with the new semantic structure

comment Subclassing to avoid line length
@SuperUser - nope, still can't really see the problem from your description - do you have an actual code example? In any event, it does sound like you're worrying too much about the wrong thing.

comment Subclassing to avoid line length
sorry if i'm being dense - but how does subclassing reduce the number of characters per line? I can see that it would reduce the number of lines per class, but that's something else

comment How do I go about debugging a PHP error?
you might want to set the error_reporting value in htaccess/apache to 2147483647 - it's a bitmask, and the exact flags change between different versions of PHP

comment Why is Moore's Law seen as an absolute truth?
The same reason that the Theory of Evolution (or Theory of Gravity) isn't "just a theory" - English vernacular has different meaning to words used in formal scientific English: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_law

comment How can I work on multiple programming languages at same time
It's weird - I had this kind of problem with French/Spanish back in high school. Now, I'm programming various things in PHP, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and I just don't have the same issues - the only reason I can offer is I'm more thoughtful about what I'm doing, and I care more about it.
