comment Is reinventing the wheel really all that bad?
Since writing this post (geez) almost three years ago, I hired and fired a developer that I described in the first sentence as "pretty rare". He lasted a month. I'd tell him how we do things here and he would say "I hear what you're saying". It took me a month to hear the unsaid "...but it's wrong and I will secretly do everything but it" at the end of the phrase.

comment How to discriminate commented code and documentation comments
I think the point, though, is the "if you find". It's going to be a manual looking-and-finding process. Hard to think there'll be any reliable way to programmatically parse for commented out code blocks.

comment Should I pay my developers for bugs fixes for a project or work that's still in progress?
@WandaPebbs - To be clear, you're currently working in under "handshake agreement" for hourly pay that contradicts your signed contract that was fixed price? Because that's part of your problem, right there. They sold you hourly because it would be cheaper for you, but it doesn't sound like that's working out. I think once the hourly price hits your quoted fixed price, you need to sound some real loud alarm bells.
