comment What are the advantages of showing line numbers in a text editor?
@Rook, Definitely. If you have everything in one file, the quality usually increases because It's easier to ensure that you don't have some stray code in some stray file somewhere.

comment git for personal (one-man) projects. Overkill?
@Yar, Undo has a long history. It's a no-brainer even back in the 1970s. Who said that they didn't need undo? Which user will ever say that? The only people who say that undo is not needed are the coders who want to cut some slack.

"There is a balance between learning new skills and applying those skills to your own projects. You have a very finite lifespan. Some people spend their life preparing for what they want to do without ever actually doing what they want to do."

comment Can GPL licensed code be close sourced later by the author?
@RossPatterson, Hmm, I think there's some real confusion here. So if we release a code as GPL, and we decided we don't want to GPL it anymore, Is the only way we could do to create a new version based on the old one? Are we actually allowed to un-GPL the old code that has already been GPL-ed?
