comment What is a good start for small web-design projects?
I have to assume that you are recommending LISP sarcastically. I program in LISP, but it possesses one of the most unconventional syntaxes I have ever encountered. As a computer scientist, I have great appreciation for it, but for web design and development, I can't think of a worse choice.

Altered the title to be in the form of a question.

comment How do you tackle really bizarre errors that keep you puzzled for more than 10 hours?
There was a fascinating NOVA Science NOW hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson which talked about the science of sleep. In it was discussed the phenomenon of banging your head on a problem for hours, going to sleep, and waking up and solving it right away. When we sleep, our brain turns the events of our day over and over and over, analyzing it from many different angles. What it leaves behind are new neural pathways that can actually help us see the problem in a whole new way subconsciously, and then actually solve the problem. Pretty awesome.

revised What are the steps in beginning a large project, when all I have is a big idea?
I tweaked the title a little bit more to be in the form of a question, and to use the author's words more directly. The trust is not how to start, but how to start when all you have in an idea.

comment What are some reasonable arguments in favor of closed source software?
Good answer. Bottom line sometimes the only thing that matter is personal preference. If you like a platform, its technology, and most importantly productive in using it, then that should be all that matters.

revised What are some reasonable arguments in favor of closed source software?
Updated the question to be a little more general and possibly useful to solicit more responses. Made some simple copy changes in the question body to account for translation issues.

comment My Dad is impatient with the pace of my learning to program. What do I do?
+1 for damn impressive as well. This answer however, as positive as it is, does not offer that much specific advice to the questioner. What would be helpful to know, before recommending any specific books, is what kinds of apps, or projects interest you David?
