comment How can I make sure I'm writing C++ like it's meant to be written?
@DeadMG, actually, based on your comment, a Huffman encoder is EXACTLY what I want C++ for. I already write in higher-level languages, and it sounds like C++ is a padded-corners shim to C-style power and speed, which is exactly what I'm wanting to learn.

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?
I appreciate the thought that my interface encapsulates the implementation: it most certainly does. The functionality is exposed through a GetValuesForInput-type method, and my massive statement is hidden in the implementation.

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.

Your answer, towards the top, has completely confused HTTP and HTML.
