comment Which is best programming style to start learning to programm POP or OOP?
@Falcon: in my experience people who have come from a POP background find OOP difficult. Complete novices with the "beginner's mind" seem to take very naturally to OOP.

comment What can you do about the quality of existing integration and unit tests while being the new guy in a team ?
Why do you work for companies who are clearly beneath your level of competency?

comment Should a competent programmer be able to come up with his own shortest path algorithm?
@Rei Miyasaka, indeed. But should one have to be a genius to use the SE sites? There is a very macho and elitist attitude on these sites that scares off the average programmer.

Spending a lot of time on the SE sites gives everyone a crisis of confidence I think! (Not that that's a bad thing). Happiness in life is finding the perfect balance between acceptance of what is and the desire to change it.

comment Password insanity! Recommended approaches to password management on multiple client systems?
Thanks Dean. We already have that - the problem is when you have 50 or 500 clients, each with their own frequently changing passwords. It's a headache.

comment Password insanity! Recommended approaches to password management on multiple client systems?
@Mark and by the way, this "off topic" business has really gotten out of hand. I understood that the Programmers - Stack Exchange was set up to handle questions were deemed off-topic on SO. I don't have time to faff around all day trying to decide which of the sites my question won't get closed on. When you make it harder for people to contribute, then they'll just stop contributing. Same thing happened on Wikipedia a few years, the Deletionists took over the show, and most people I know gave up editing.
