comment What should you leave behind for your successors?
I'm happy I answered this. I recently left the job I was at where I wanted all of this, and this gives me a good checklist of what to write up.

comment Getting management to hire a new developer?
@DeveloperDon Never did convince him to hire a new dev, and gave up after awhile. I also started a new job about 2 months ago, where we can't find enough people to hire. However, being a new hire now, that question is definitely worth contributing to.

comment Ruby but not Rails on my Resume
@Ken Been a few months since I last looked at my resume, but pretty sure I have it under either technologies or languages. Also, meant to put a ":P" at the end, guess I forgot.

comment Ruby but not Rails on my Resume
@Josh The OP has already stated in his question that learning Rails isn't an option right now. He also never said that he had no interest, just that it's not relevant to his thesis. Going to guess that's why the downvote.

comment What is the right level of site blocking for you as a developer?
@JW01 If not social networking, they'd find somewhere else to waste their time. StackEchange, solitaire, phone, reading newspapers... These people (likely 10-25%) will waste time no matter what. You're wasting the other 75-90% of people's time by blocking sites.

comment Getting management to hire a new developer?
Thought I should say, I showed my one boss my todo list (was about 70 odd items at the time), and made occasional comments about how much I have to do. Was told last week they're going to hire somebody to help me out.

This sounds like one of those interview questions; "How many piano repairmen are there in San Diego?"
