comment When do you drop old technologies from your resume?
This is a cultural thing - in England you are expected to keep it short (one page or at most two) even for a CV. In Australia there was a tradition of including everything in CVs and although that's receding you still end up with 8+ pages. A resume is supposed to be a 1-2 page summary. Resume != CV HR people get upset if you don't know the difference.

comment Is hungarian notation a workaround for languages with insufficiently-expressive (i.e. Haskell-style) static typing?
It does in a language where you can define types like an xCoord and yCoord that are treated as different types even though they're both Integers. I've been spoiled though :)
