comment Is Perl still a useful, viable language?
@JamesAnderson: C#, through Visual Studio, has NuGet ... which is close enough.

comment Should I reuse variables?
Yes. It helps you pinpoint if it's the first or second iteration that failed. mspec may help for this, its inheritance tree will be very useful.

comment Is it more secure to hash a password multiple times?
@deadalnix: it's important to mention that it doesn't make it easier to recover the original password, but it does make it easier to generate a colliding password, which is all that's required.

comment Practical way to store a “reasonably large” amount of data that hardly ever changes?

comment Five or fewer tips to writing good JavaScript?
"Do you actually get HTTP? Sure, you might know how tags work and nest stuff, but do you actually understand doctype and quirks mode? Do you understand that you shouldn't put paragraph tags around a list element?" Nothing in that quote involves the transport protocol, outside of the misused case of it.

comment What is the role of QA in a BDD-driven project?
+1 for "another set of eyes". My wife is a QA person. She has crashed an ATM before just trying to get some cash. I'd like to think the ATM was pretty thoroughly tested before it was shipped. She still found a code path that crashed it.

comment What should I be using to store data in a legacy web development project?
-1 for the JPEG example. XML can (reasonably successfully) be used as a storage format, and drivers exist to use CSV and XML as backends.
