comment Why have private static methods?
This is even more valuable when you need to pass derived (calculated) arguments to a superclass' constructor. The super(...) call must be the first line of your class' constructor, so you can't declare local variables to help you work out what to pass to the super call. However, you can call (private) static methods, which use as many lines as is necessary to work out the value to pass to the super constructor.

comment What is meant by “Now you have two problems”?
Didn't Uncle Ben also say "Perfect results, every time"? Maybe that's why people get so trigger happy with regexes...

comment Why don't all companies buy developers the best hardware?
Arguably that doesn't fully answer the question (it's more about the mechanics). The follow-up would then be why is the hardware budget undersized, if you accept the premise that you should spend e.g. 2% of developers' salary on workstations?
