comment Dark themes in IDE with multiple monitors
A Visual Studio port is available, though you have to decide upfront which theme you use, either the dark or light one. Switching can't be done on the fly.

comment What are the downsides of RoR?
One thing that surprised me occasionally was that lots of gems out there which seemingly appear to be independent from RoR turn out to only be used with RoR, and not in standalone. Very curious to why this is. PS: I'm not a Ruby programmer, so I might have gotten the wrong impression. But I did stumble upon this a few times. Sadly I've got no examples at the moment.

comment How would you assess a programmer's Github profile?
Why forking projects if you're not going to contribute to it? This seems to happen a lot over at GitHub. Is it to make sure the source code doesn't disappear when the original author decides to delete the repository?

comment Is it “normal” for people to not work?
Nice answer. I'm in that second group as well and more and more I find myself having moments where I'm writing code without compiling. But when I do it's mostly flawless and compiles in a single run. I love those moments.

comment Software License: Open Source, but no distribution (for free or for profit)
"Means you can't call it Open Source": Not true. Open Source doesn't equal free code. See my comment to the OP.

comment Software License: Open Source, but no distribution (for free or for profit)
Software can be perfectly open source when the source code is provided after the purchase but prohibits the user from selling it. Open source doesn't have to mean it's free. One example is BlitzMax. You get the full source code upon purchasing, but you're not allowed to distribute it. Changes can be shared amongst other users in their dedicated forums which are shielded from non-registered users.

Perhaps you should be moving to a mailing list manager instead?

comment Does it make sense to have a single tab interface?
All modern web browsers will show you a single tab when you've only got 1 website opened :-)

@JackLeo Creative Commons licenses aren't really meant for source code.

comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
They are both as easy to debug, mainly since it's a short block of code. The indentation is consistent making it easy to visualize the actual code blocks.

comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
My exception on this one is that else and elseif do go on a newline so they aren't prefixed with a closing brace.

comment Why do people hesitate to use Python 3?
Ugh sorry, I meant Rakudo 1.0. Rakudo Star isn't meant for production yet.

comment Why do people hesitate to use Python 3?
Until Rakudo Star is released there is no official production ready implementation of Perl 6. Or another implementation catches on, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

comment Why do people hesitate to use Python 3?
Perl 6 is still under development. Yes, Rakudo Perl is the closest implementation to the Perl 6 specification but doesn't implement everything yet. There is simply no production ready Perl 6 implementation yet.

Really? JavaScript is confusing? To me it all seems quite natural. But that's just me :-P.

comment Should software engineers also act as tech support?
I'm in the same boat as you and fully agree with you. However, it should be possible and more often that a receptionist takes the call and writes down a note for you to give that customer a call back. That way you can go on not getting interrupted in your work and call back when it suits you best. Do however call back the same day, preferably within 2 hours after the call came in.
