comment Why is it impossible to produce truly random numbers?
That's like saying eventually someone is going to make a machine that can solve the halting problem because someone said it was impossible. It's not a matter of finding the equation, it actually is random according to all the experiments that have been run and that math that backs it up.

comment *Code owner* system: is it an efficient way?
Where I work we have sections of code that are 'owned' by someone (or some group), but by no means are they the only ones that touch those files. There's simply too much code for everyone to know everything, so people specialize in certain subsystems and are responsible for know and being able to make larger scale design decisions on some system, but it's not uncommon for some else and make smaller quick changes as needed.

comment Young C++ student lacking direction
Did you try looking on the SFML forums for help regarding your missing symbol problem? The author of the library, Laurent, is active on the forums, so you should be able to get some help there (or if you post the full error message here you should be able to get an answer). Try not to get too frustrated, problems like this tend to come up a lot when you first start up.

comment Why is DRY important?
I will admit I've copied and pasted stuff in the past, but never for anything I was going to keep around for more than a day. Sometimes you just need a quick and dirty throw-away script.

See: "more often than not you're going to be working on code that needs to be maintained" :)

I want to know what kind of guppies you're raising if they're turning into gerbils and dogs.

I hope by now everyone has realised that Vim is the superior religion :)

+1 for the whiteboard suggestion. This is especially useful if you're doing things that face users like UI.
