comment Found NDA code online, does the NDA effect me?
@Keith: In most jurisdictions the law does not recognise "finders keepers" without going through formal channels. Interesting legal concept as to copyright holders rights being infringed playing a song from a CD you do not have permission to use?

comment Information Technology -> Specialization of Computer Science?
In fact - that site has it completely wrong. You cannot talk about IT vs Comp Sci without also understanding the the roles of SW Engineer and Programmer.

comment Information Technology -> Specialization of Computer Science?
Computer Science and IT (along with Software Engineering) comparisons usually draw parallels with other science disciplines - e.g Physics or Chemistry vs Engineering School. IT comes from engineering school, Comp Sci from Science faculty. Nether is a specialisation of the other. (The IT guy will not write academic papers on theoretical uses of computers, the Comp Sci guy to build and run a data centre? -although clearly some people work in both domains)

comment Information Technology -> Specialization of Computer Science?
I do not believe the linked website can be used an authoritative reference on the subject. A read of the Wikipedia pages on IT and Computer Engineering (along with the discussions pages) would provide a vastly superior answer.

comment How to handle duplicate files in version control
My guess is the problem you have with version controlling is a symptom of a bigger configuration management problem.Unfortunately VC tools manage to do simple CM acceptable well, and many presume incorrectly they scale up.

comment Is too much whitespace a bad thing?
Agree with point 2 (+1) , Point 1 (-1) If you can't see all the code.... get a bigger screen, refactor, but do not make you code less readable for who - tablet uses, notebook users, desktops with 1920*1024, 4K screens are now cheap enough they will be common in 2 years....

comment Is duplicate syntax for defining named functions a bad language design decision?
The major benefit of doing something more than one way in a language is it is a great way to start unproductive religious debates which distract from the real problems (Thinking C++ here) .......
