comment Why is + so bad for concatenation?
This isn't what I meant at all though, it's completely unrelated to the question.

comment Is it common to prototype in a higher level language?
I've written real-time code in Java. In that particular project, file access was done with C++, and the real-time code was in Java - crazy! However, the real time code was blazingly fast. It wasn't very complicated, but it did handle incredible amounts of data in no-time. So I'd say you can definitely use high-level languages for performance-sensitive applications.

comment FizzBuzz - really?
int? result; for (int i = 0; i < int.MaxValue; i++) { T item = (i < array.Length) ? array[i] : someDummyItem; if (item == whatWereLookingFor) result = i; } return result; - constant time :)

And since when does Java have anonymous functions exactly?

comment What are the advantages of obfuscating release code?
@vcsjones: That's not really obfuscation then...

comment Why is + so bad for concatenation?
Thing is, in C# you could do the same thing, and you will get the same result - System.Console.WriteLine("result is " + 10 + 20);, but nobody ever complains about that in C#. That's what I don't understand - what is it about JavaScript that makes it more confusing?

comment New Team Lead - How to deal with a resentful former peer
@Jarrod: Okay. When I became tech lead I didn't change my behaviour in any way, and I didn't have any problems with people in my team realizing that I'm the lead.

comment New Team Lead - How to deal with a resentful former peer
WTH? Don't talk to your coworkers about sports? Just because you're professionally above them does not mean you can't be friends. I play poker with my company's directors twice a month and yet I'm pretty sure when it comes to work I report to them and not vice versa.

comment How do you remember where in your code you want to continue next time?
I do it with a notepad too, and every week I get rid of the old page and start a new one.

comment Do computer glasses work?
It does sound like an advert for Gunnar, but thanks for your input... I don't get the turning down the brightness bit... It only makes me strain even more to see the screen!

comment Do computer glasses work?
I don't wear regular glasses, but I'm looking for something that would reduce eye strain without reducing my screen time. Perhaps I'll ask an optometrist.

comment Should I point out spelling/grammar related mistakes in someone's code?
Also, a review with nothing wrong but minor changes is marked as 'accepted' - a rejected review is only one where I've talked to the developer and we both agree that a major change is in order.
