I've been spending over the last decade of my life building games.

I have a deeply seeded love of Python and the open source community as a whole.

comment Python code style - blank lines in long list
@ChrisKrycho: See edit. Really, it's just personal preference, but this makes the intention of each portion of your list easier to grok. It's /clear/ what is intended to go where (and therefore increases readability).

comment Python code style - blank lines in long list
@ChrisKrycho: Ah, in my un-caffeinated state, I didn't see fully what was going on. Rather than using a class, I'd still set a local reference to each logical block and then chain them to create the list being fed into AcceleratorTable.

comment Can PHP and Javascript do backend together?
node can run a pure tcp server just as easily as a web server. for all we know, the OP was interested in using a services architecture where the PHP portion simply communicated with a service backend written in node. in that case, you wouldn't need two web servers. also, unless i'm mistaken, i'm not aware of a node-based php interpreter.

comment Black Hat Hackers vs Programmers?
@MattRidge: Absolutely. However, my intent with sharing the link (other than it's one of my favorite nostalgic readings) was to suggest that you should accept black hat hackers as a way of life because it's never going to go away. I'm also not quite sure how standing on shoulders of giants is a bad thing.. We are all doing that.. Programmers and hackers alike.

comment Multithreading synchronization interview question: Find n words given m threads
@RobertHarvey: Sometimes people ask the wrong questions. The OP has a poor mindset to tackle technical interviews and this answer was an attempt to help put him/her on the right track.

comment What are graphs in laymen's terms
I'd actually extend that example to note that all entities described in your example could be depicted as vertices in a graph (city, plane, magazine, map, etc), the map itself just being a single vertex.
