C and C++ developer with a background in Software Assurance and system level security.

I haven't asked too many questions since Google usually provides me with what I'm looking for (frequently leading me here). Never the less, I have broken down and asked a few. I do try to answer questions when I have time since this site has helped me so much.

My first attempt at creating a (somewhat) useful Android app:

comment Is relying on implicit argument conversion considered dangerous?
Yeah, I just threw the code together to test out some of the gcc compiler options (which it doesn't look like there are any to address this particular case). I didn't look much further into it (I'm supposed to be working :-) but given gcc's adherence to the standard and the use of the explicit keyword a compiler option was probably deemed unnecessary.

comment Prevent developers from using constants
Right. But there's no way for the compiler to know the difference between which hard coded constant is good and which hard coded constant is bad.

comment Flow Chart - While Loops process
I would use consistent naming throughout. If a "frame" is more descriptive of what the data is I'd call it "frame" and forget the term "block" ever existed.

comment Flow Chart - While Loops process
It looks more correct to me. I can see each block/frame being processed without exiting prematurely. As @JohnR says in his comment though, there could be a better distinction between what a block and a frame is (if they are not the same thing).

comment You're hired to fix a small bug for a security-intensive site. Looking at the code, it's filled with security holes. What do you do?
The attacker could use the exploit to get the information on the structure of the database. No SQL injection vulnerability should ever be downplayed.
