comment Names of Programming Languages Across Cultures
This question appears to be off-topic because it has no definitive answer -- there may be as many answers as there are languages or cultures in the world.

comment What are the advantages of recursion compared to iteration?
Good effort, but there's a lot that's wrong or misleading here. For example, compared to an iterative algorithm, it's often easier, not harder, to prove that a recursive algorithm is correct. Recursion is neither more general nor more powerful than iteration -- the two styles are equivalent in terms of what they can or cannot do.

comment I want to experience the early days of computing
True, but even today a working DEC Alpha will set you back a couple thousand bucks, so putting up with increased performance seems like a reasonable trade off. ;-)

comment Is “White-Board-Coding” inappropriate during interviews?
@jwenting Disagree. New hires often take weeks or months before they can really start to make a positive contribution, and usually require equipment and training, so there's an up front commitment of time and money. Certain level means just that -- both enter into the relationship planning to make it work out, but neither party's commitment is absolute.

+1 for caching, which will probably eliminate most of the load without having to precompute every version of every image.
