comment Algorithmic problem - quickly finding all #'s where value %x is some given value
Thanks for the excellent suggestion, although I didn't see an easy application of consistent hashing in this case. Suggestions for a better distribution than Hash % #machines (i.e. anything that's both fair and stable) would also be welcome.

comment Perks for new programmers
admin rights - this seems so basic that I'd question the sense of companies that deny it - I'd assume that either the staff was mostly incompetent or that the management was paranoid - But this is like demanding that chairs be clean - if you've got to ask for this you've got bigger problems.
