comment Working as the sole programmer at a non-tech company
In retrospect, this is a more accurate answer to my situation (but not necessarily all situations). I've since left that job, and am now working with other programmers who are a lot smarter than me. Definitely the right move for my career.

comment Why was Rails written in Ruby?
I believe an initial attempt at Basecamp was attempted in PHP, and wasn't working out to DHH's satisfaction. Hence, Rails was coded in Ruby.

comment Use of pirated/cracked software for development
There are some grey area arguments you can make when using unlicensed software as an hobbyist individual or poor college student, but if you're a commercial entity making money from said software, then you have little ground to stand on.

comment Working as the sole programmer at a non-tech company
And I certainly don't feel disrespected. I think it has more to do with vision. I see ample opportunity for technology to let us be more efficient or serve our customers better, but that's because I spend all my time living in the tech world. But at the same time, I need to make sure our technical debt doesn't get out of control. It's a frustrating balancing act, and communicating it to people who've just never been there before is tough.

I take care of all the odd computer related tasks. But I typically don't mind that stuff, as long as it isn't too time consuming.
