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 How safe are hidden AJAX requests that fake performance?
@Niphra, "Why did the deletion fail?" The network can fail for many reasons, none of which to do with your application. There's nothing you can do to stop that.

@hbtest, Exactly. It's an annoying behavior users curse at, exactly the definition of bad UI.

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?

How could someone relicense his code commercially if he has previously already put it in the free domain? Aren't licenses either you choose A or B, but not both? (The OP is talking about his old code that has already been GPL-ed, not new ones).

comment Ternary operator considered harmful?
It's hard to be so readable that you can't make it better. printf("I see %d evil construct%s in this program\n", n, "s" unless (n == 1) "s");
