comment Why do programmers use or recommend Mac OS X?
Great question OP, as I've been wondering the same thing for a while now. Am still deciding if I'll get a MacBook Pro anytime soon or not, even though my current laptop doesn't need to be replaced yet. I also find the price a bit too high and on top of that, I've never touched a Mac :-).

Just curious, one guy that had job offers from Google, Apple and Facebook?

comment Have programmers at your work not taken up or been averse to an offer of a second monitor?
I have a 24" as my main screen and a 19" as a second on the right. I hardly use it and only use it to have Outlook open, which sadly is a company policy here. Sometimes I drag consoles/terminals or PDF files to it but nothing more. Mainly e-mail monitoring, which can disturb work a lot.

comment Does the programming language or database you use have any effect on the selling of your site?
On auction? You mean as in selling a product through some sort of online (bidding?) systems, much like you have for web/layout designers can with their designs?

comment Why write clean, refactored code?
How does not having unit tests help the quality of code? I guess point 3 covers the requirement of having tests. Else, what other way is there to determine that the code is indeed correct?

@canardman your question is hard to follow because of your bad English. Could you re-read your question and try to correct your grammar?

You don't teach your students to write tests?

comment Dealing with inflexible programmers
Credit should be given where credit is due. The senior guy could still take the lead on the implementation of the system but should still give credit to the one that gave the suggestion and worked out most details of the implementation. It's only fair.

comment Is it normal for programmer to work on multiple projects simultaneously
Indeed, force your boss to tell you what's important. Communication is very important and when not maintained it can cause a great deal of frustration and disappointment to either party.

It also prevents you from getting bored of the project when that's all you do. I currently have about 100 different tasks waiting to be done, spread over 17 projects. Sure, this does cause some pressure at times but I get unhappy when there's nothing to do besides putting all my energy in one single big project.
