comment Should I use parentheses in logical statements even where not necessary?

Just remember && is times and || is plus, and you'll never forget which comes first.

comment Career Day: how do I make “computer programmer” sound cool to 8 years old?
I don't know about 8 year olds, but my 4 year old recently discovered that my job has something to do with the Internet. She rushed to her Mom, shouting "Mommy, did you know Daddy works for the INTERNET?!? You buy things from there!"

comment How do you ascertain the quality of a potential employer's code before you take a position?
I think it's pretty reasonable to say you'd like a chance to speak with some of the developers who would be your peers.
