comment Do you write secondary languages in your CV?
Because I wouldn't want to ever code in COBOL again. :-) Hey, if you like COBOL more power to you. I, however, do not.

comment Do you write secondary languages in your CV?
I should clarify this a bit I think. I would still mention in the area where I talk about that job that it involved that technology. I just wouldn't list that technology in the "proficiencies" section that most people have at the top of their CVs.

comment How do you decide how much your software will cost?
+1 for the deposit. I screwed myself a few times by not insisting on this. It really separates out the people that are serious.

does this actually work? i've always assumed that like 99% of people ignore those Donate buttons. But i've never tried to ask for donations so I don't know.

comment Why are there so many programming languages? Why are new languages still being made?
This is true. The drive to add new features in order to get more money from the market certainly cannot be ignored. However, it is a double-edged sword. You can expect new features from a commercially-backed product for this exact reason. But from an open source product, you only get new features for as long as the volunteer army stays interested, and there is someone of skill at the helm to herd the cats.
