comment What differentiates the exceptional programmers from the really good ones?
@Walter they could but I just haven't ever seen that. The closest I've seen is newbie programmers who deeply cared about their code but still made newbie mistakes (nobody is immune). When those mistakes were pointed out though they were fixed speedily and rarely repeated.

comment How can I really “wow” an employer at an interview?
@Robert, different people handle things differently. I find it to be calming, my brother on the other hand goes through the roof.

Removed the beer comment to stem the tide. I still think it's a good suggestion but understand the making it a habbit argument.

I love how people are interpretting "have one beer" as "get drunk".
