comment What determines when a computer is considered a “client”?
If you request data from a server (server1), and that server needs to request data from another server (server2), server 1 becomes a client in the second request. So not all clients are devices in the hands of consumers; it's about who's asking and who's answering. Clients ask, servers respond.

comment Dealing with change requests from clients for an old system that only take 5 minutes to implement
Classic question. Whichever model you choose, just be sure you're not working for free. If they don't pay, they won't appreciate your hard work.

I too prefer the support agreement approach to nickel and dime invoices.

comment Is it a bad practice to stop providing support for outdated software if updates are free and easy?
@Malfist - nice. "No need to worry about version n - your problem is fixed in version n+1, which is due out next year!" :)

comment What makes for “good style” in Java?
Clarifying: You said, "I'm not interesting in the Java code conventions." but this is because you know them, not because they're unimportant, right? It's very important to follow the standard coding conventions (classes begin with upper, variables begin with lower, use CamelCase, etc.).

comment How do you stop yourself from bringing work home?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with thinking about work all the time. There is also absolutely nothing wrong with thinking about work only 9-5. These are choices.

+1 for @BinaryWorrier. Default to YES! when asked if you want to do something social.

+1. Repeat as necessary:Ideas are a dime a dozen. Ideas are a dime a dozen. Ideas are a dime a dozen. You get the picture.

comment Company wants thoughts about their site during interview
... And if they don't spend time on your site, they really just want a job - any job! (as opposed to wanting to work for your company). It astounds me how few candidates do even basic research on companies to prepare for the interview.

There are hundreds of other examples just like this. Can you give me an example of the situation you're talking about?
