I'm a serial user of the double __ space after a period — even though people tell me it's obsolete in the computer-world, I can't shake the habit from my 7th grade typing class.

comment Going about increasing salary during performance review
@MichelAyres The question is now deleted at Programmers. 10K users will still be able to view it, but the question is "How do I know what I should be earning?" The answers are basically, use sites like Glassdoor, PayScale, and salary.com; ask others in the same field; interview and get offers.

comment Reasons NOT to open source not-for-profit code?
@MasonWheeler The issue is for an organization with limited resources and unlimited ways to spend those resources, a "serious discussion of security" might not actually be warranted. I think it's nice to put "security" above all else, but reality is that it needs to be balanced with every business need. And of course, a good software engineer will be able to keep security high at any level of design, but that is where the discussion of limited resources comes into play. I couldn't in good conscience recommend opensourcing based on "you should have security figured out anyway".
