comment Train domain specialists in programming, or train developers in the domain?
@JörgWMittag: I think you're hiding your light under a bushel and should write an answer of your own.

comment Turn gfortran runtime errors into warnings
I think that you are avoiding what you know is the right thing to do -- fix the so-called innocuous errors. If you know that your program wanders off the ends of arrays you know it's wrong.

comment How to efficiently store big time series data?
You should consider array databases -- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Array_DBMS#List_of_Array_DBMS. I'm not saying that one of them would be the right, or even the best or even a good enough, answer, just that they should enter your thoughts. Besides the entries in that list there is the kdb system (kx.com) though it is far from free.

comment What would be good factual arguments to convince high level management to consider functional programming?
Why should high-level management give a damn what programming languages and methods are used ? Why would they be involved in such a decision ? Surely that's a matter for the technical managers ?

comment Why aren't we building and using parallel processors *meant* for general computation?
I beg to differ with @Telastyn and Charles E. Grant. Any consumer with an up to date iPhone (I guess other recent smartphones too) is using a multi-core (parallel) processor. Surely they're not all playing games with them ?

comment Why are floats called “real numbers” in some languages?
Of course 1/3 can be represented with absolute accuracy in a floating-point number system, though not, I grant you, a binary f-p number system.

comment Identity matrix using Fortran 95
You're probably not using the edit descriptor to write a 1- or 2-digit integer. Try experimenting: use simple write statements to write to the console varying both the width of the field and the size of the integer.

comment Are there any ultra high level languages out there?
What ! 16 hours (as I write), and no one has mentioned Wolfram yet (blog.wolfram.com/2013/11/13/…) or its soon to be eclipsed ancestor Mathematica ?

comment COBOL & Mainframe & Business
Long long time ago and I have chosen Python are mutually inconsistent statements, Python is a beardless youth standing next to COBOL.

comment How does the Scrum Master participate in Daily Stand-Ups?
We could find out her name, but it's more fun enjoying the Dilbert-esque absurdity of the situation Be careful that you haven't become Wally. Sure, she may be the pointy-haired boss but that alone doesn't make you Dilbert.

comment How does the Scrum Master participate in Daily Stand-Ups?
This is a joke right ? You have a daily meeting with someone and you haven't asked her name ? I know that scrums can be rough, but the common courtesies of life still apply.

comment How should a non-IT manager secure the long-term maintenance and development of essential legacy software?
I didn't suggest they find a firm to provide software, rather a continued benefits administration system service.
