comment Lag problem for a simple game in Java on Linux
As the "lag" seems to be specific to certain systems and/or operating systems, it is most likely nothing to do with your code but rather with those systems and/or operating systems.

comment Job Interview Challenges
@SebastianRedl if an interviewer were to ask me that question I'd wonder why he asked it but not voice my opinion about where he should stuff it, a doing so is more likely to get you rejected than accepted (even if in your specific case it'd be exactly what you are looking for). In fact I've at least once rejected an offer to do a "test" that had questions like that, because if that's the kind of questions they ask during a programming test it's unlikely to be the kind of environment I'd want to work in.

comment Licensing of content created by licensed code
I've seen libraries and tools that in their licenses/TOS included restrictions on the licensing/rights of the created data/content. Don't ask me the legality of such things, but some programmers do try.

comment What is the effectiveness of code reviewing by just reading?
and of course the tests should also be reviewed as part of the code review process. I've often found flaws in tests that caused them to pass when they shouldn't, leading to production errors that can potentially cost millions.

comment Why were punch cards used for programming
even in the 1990s I was given 5 minutes of computer time for an entire semester at university for my programming assignment. Luckily the screen editor used next to no CPU time when typing in the Pascal code, or it wouldn't have been enough to last those months. Everyone wrote their programs on paper, cross checked and corrected themselves and others using paper programming manuals, then had the program ok'd for entry by the teaching assistant, and only then was it painstakingly typed in, every character double checked with the paper original to ensure there were no typos to fool the compiler.

comment How can I hide my signature in a program?
@duozmo nothing wrong with working together (IF the assignment allows it of course), long as you don't end up doing someone else's work for them. And no, my fellow students were never enemies when I was in university. At worst they were competitors for the nicest assignments.
