comment Don't like my current job, want to leave, how to explain this in a job interview?
My point is that saying anything like this will make you look like money is TOO important for you. Its fine as long as it is VERY important but when you say this, it is TOO important. @keppla When you say "everyone was racist at my current company" the interviewer won't say "so you will leave us when we become racist too". The point is that money has a slightly different impression than other things... OR may be this is just my point of view. Do let me know if I am taking the whole thing wrong.

#2 is the best possible way to offend the interviewer. His immediate question will be "So you will leave us too as soon as you find an even higher paying job???"

comment Why do ruby and python seem to have more community contribution than PHP?
Why?! I neither developed PHP nor WinBinder and I am no advocate of any specific language including PHP. If you hate it, you have every right to do so but keep in mind that it won't change the fact that PHP is not just in web. Just for your reference here is a showcase of desktop applications developed using PHP/WinBinder: winbinder.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=4 Please note that I won't be able to reply here anymore. Thanks

comment Why do ruby and python seem to have more community contribution than PHP?
I used it only once back in 2007 so I have no idea. My point is that PHP not only can be used for non-web purposes but is being used as well.

comment Why is filesystem preferred for logs instead of RDBMS?
Obviously any and everything may fail if we are not careful. But for this question I was refering to high level programmer. As a simple example, the programmer might want to separate values using a particular character. So his/her regex will work like a charm but will fail when the same character is contained inside a value block. This way he needs to take care of similar possible cases and he doesn't need to think about them if he were saving in DB. Also, can you please see my comment on gbjbaanb's answer?

comment Why is filesystem preferred for logs instead of RDBMS?
But I have a confusion for this. My notepad, wordpad, gedit or notepad++ or any web-browser won't be happy opening a file 4GB in size. The same browser, however, will be able to show me a list of thousand pages, each containing 500 records printed. Right?
