comment How long should I provide free updates for my shareware - per version, per year, or forever?
Awwww, beat me to it. I'll add though that when I bought UE it had an option that would let me pay 3 times the base cost and have a perpetual license, free upgrades forever, not sure if they still do that or not.

comment In what specific ways did Pascal and or Delphi influence Java?
I think it was the JavaBean specification that most of the influence was seen in.

comment Java stored procedures in Oracle, a good idea?
Directly, no, but how about from AskTom? You Asked I've written a program which uses the utl_smtp to send a email to myself. However, when I run the procedure, the following error occurs: ORA-29540: class oracle/plsql/net/TCPConnection does not exist and we said... Some of the installer scripts forget to load the needed jar file for TCP/IP support in PLSQL. Simply: cd plsql/jlib loadjava -user sys/password plsql.jar

comment Mobile games: paid vs. ad-supported?
I'm interested as I'm planning to start selling apps on Android soon, how is selling on Android more of a hassle? Especially in comparison to the approval process on IOS. I also refute your first point, I've bought at least a dozen apps for my Droid...though I'll admit I might be the exception that proves the rule.

comment Can someone find a job as a programmer without an education?
Look for the "Or" clause, where I've had my best luck is with ads that said, "Such education or equivalent experience". Good Luck!
