comment Application / Code reviews for lone programmers?
@Merlyn: Yes I realize there are several disanalogies present in comment. However my argument is not that building houses is just like writing software. My argument is that software development is a practice that requires more stringent testing procedures than can be provided by a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old, which I think is true, otherwise most companies would just bring toddlers onboard instead of the more expensive trained software testers that I normally see companies hiring.

comment Application / Code reviews for lone programmers?
Say you were building houses on the side, instead of developing software. Would your testing procedures really consist of getting a 5-year-old to try to break the house and getting a 10-year-old to agree with you that the house is structurally sound?

comment Make a big deal out of == true?
@Graeme: Yes that would be optimal of course, which is why I agree with the OP and pretty much everyone else here on this point.

comment Make a big deal out of == true?
@SplashHit: But readability==goodthing is already obviously a boolean. So the extra true you're adding is actually reduntant. My argument is only for when the variable's type is in question.

comment Make a big deal out of == true?
This isn't a relevant argument. If you're working in a language like that, you could just move the true to the other side. The question is about whether or not to include the true at all.
