comment Simple method for reliably detecting code in text?
You should probably drop pseudo code. Some people like to write it as a C-style language but other people will use plain english with something that looks closer to VB6

comment Simple method for reliably detecting code in text?
I'd start off by looking at tags on what languages the question is about to limit what processing is needed. Then use clues like this to form an approximation of where code is situated. Say, if a line has a clue that says it's a piece of code then backtrack to attempt find the first line of code. Then step after line 3 like debugger and repeat the process this time looking forwards until there's some indication that we've rearched the end of the code snippet. This way you could handle cases where lines of code are separated by plain text.

comment Naming conventions: camelCase versus underscore_case ? what are your thoughts about it?
In Java where names are typically camelCased the class names actually start with a Capital letter. This is to distinguish them from method names.

comment '<' versus '!=' as condition in a 'for' loop?
"However, using a less restrictive operator is a very common defensive programming idiom." This sums it up more or less.

Thanks for the edit Anna. I sometimes get the spelling mixed up between "developer" in English and "développeur" in French.

comment UML: Going from Use Case to Class Diagram
Funnily enough I was thinking of doing this on oDesk ;) . This is for a end-of-studies project though and I'm a bit tight on resources. I'll definitely give it a go later on as being in contact with someone experienced definitely helps.

comment How do you deal with people who ask you to fix their computer?
@Reigel: Sounds like the perfect excuse for mentioning "error 30" (the source of the error is situated 30cm from the screen).
