comment How can I let prospective employers know I'm a great developer?
I didn't downvote, but I have always had a problem with this answer. Why does everyone always assume that every good developer is trying to make some kind of sellable product in their spare time? What if you're a tinkerer, who learns a great deal from all of your 'personal projects' but nothing is noteworthy, or particularly useful to anyone else?

Isn't this essentially how MySQL replication works - except that the journals are sent to the slave dbs?

comment Worst coding standard you've ever had to follow?
They can be useful if, for instance, you're using the /// <summary> tags in a language that uses it for the purposes of intellisense.

comment What are the benefits of using database abstraction by ORM?
+1: Very interesting. I've generally been a proponent of ORMs, but I have usually considered RDBMS' equal (which I've recently started to see as wrong).

comment Has programming for a living ruined your ability to enjoy technology?
+1: "...from a CCTV camera to get a high resolution print out of the suspects face." from a recording (ie. it's digital zoom, not optical) through the reflection in a pane of glass, at 100 meters, in a blizzard.

comment Why am I never completely satisfied with my program?
Whatever you do, don't let it kill your sense of accomplishment. Been there; done that; nothing good came from it.

I was going to add MonoDevelop but I thought I heard that it had problems and couldn't compile against .NET?

comment Why are there so few female programmers?
As someone relatively recently engaged, I can't agree more. "What should the wedding colors be?" "I don't care; just tell me what time I have to show up and I'll be there."

comment How do you manage your knowledge base?
I just started using this a few days ago as I found out about it from another question here and I really can't get enough of it. I have it on a thumbdrive that's usually always with me. It's really handy.

comment Is Linq having a mind-numbing effect on .NET programmers?
+1: It's worth-while to stretch your tools to see how many problems can be pounded into the shape of a nail when you're learning a technology.
