comment Explaining technical things to non-technical people
@Arkaaito Usually using individual cards as good examples of inheritance and/or properties (depending on who I'm talking to and about what), and the deck as a container class that has functions like shuffle(), deal(), dealOne(), etc.

comment Effectiveness of “what is your greatest strength/weakness” interview questions
Worst I've been asked was what are my 3 greatest strengths & weaknesses. I could easily come up with 2 for either that didn't make me look like a shoddy employee, wasn't easy to come up with the third for either.

comment What's the most absurd myth about programming issues?
@Anna Some are three years, like the one I took (and the extra year was where we learned most of the useful, high-level, information). And actually, some colleges can give out bachelor degrees--or can in Ontario, I can't speak for other provinces--but it's very specific, and quite regulated.

@Billy How about around here, where a college diploma means jack, but a university diploma will grant you everything? Both go to school, both are arguably better than the other, but there's a sociological difference

comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
@Wayne For the longest time, ca2.php.net was blocked, considered "Personals/Dating" somehow. ca., ca1., and ca3.php.net were all good. Was annoying when I'd get load balanced to ca2 and had to change it... I know your pain.
