They teach me, but I don't learn until I use it...

comment Ashamed to admit using jQuery?
The solution to that is literally identical to your current solution, isn't it? Oh... Unless your jQuery isn't first version loaded. That, and having everything in one convenient file is understandable. :-)

@mipadi Because the copyright notice condition appears to be attached to distribution in the GPL, section 4. If this isn't distribution, do you still need the copyright notice? I have no idea; I'm asking. :-)

@mipadi But jQuery is dual licensed under MIT and GPL. If the GPL says it's OK and there isn't copyright in the file, isn't the company just licensing under GPL by default?

That's why you don't rename the file you download from jQuery. I kinda doubt that jquery-1.4.4.min.js would have conflicting versions.

comment Is there any reason to use C++ instead of C, Perl, Python, etc.?
What about embedded development? Python isn't always available, and the difference in speed between C and well written C++ is negligible on devices past a certain level of processing power. Of course, I suppose a C++ compiler wouldn't always be available either...

When branching, merging, and conflict resolution are considered complex operations, you're probably using the wrong version control system...

Look at your laptop. Now look at me. Back to the laptop. Now back to me. I plug in a keyboard, mouse, and external monitor. Your laptop is now desktop!

comment When would someone be considered a bad programmer?
I don't remember exactly how I implemented things that I programmed last week. Is this uncommon? I was under the impression that working with finite human memory was just one of challenges of programming. Hence, the importance of structuring and documenting code so that I don't need to remember details.
