comment What are the arguments against or for putting application logic in the database layer?
This. You want your database to be resilient. So logic tied to your data should reside there.

comment How can I create a solid business case for upgrading our programmers to 256 GB SSD and 16 GB of RAM?
@NimChimpsky We're in late 2012. SSD have been around for more than 3 years now, upgrading your tools once a couple year is not asking too much I hope. I mean, you're not developing on punch cards anymore, are you?

@NimChimpsky but having to wait less often gives you less excuses to go make some coffee or tea. SSD are a must have in any PC if you want to work with it.

comment How to manage a developer who has poor communication skills
Or maybe at least half the mundane tasks are his and not to delegate to programmers. "Placing & managing orders for hardware or infrastructure in different regions", "Support"? Even tests should be for a Q&A team and not a dev one.

comment Is it a good idea to do UI 100% in Javascript and provide data through an API?
@Darknight I'm not thinking like a programer by not having js enable by default. I'm thinking like a user who don't disable security measures on his rig.

"And, to be honest, I've yet to find a user that has Javascript disabled this day and age." Well hello then. I have noscript installed so the default for me is to have javascript disabled when landing on a new website. And if nothing works I usually just close the website's tab.

comment Dealing with management that does not see value in improvements that are not immediately visible to the user
"show the quality problems and delays that are caused by the mess" That's what we've done on a project. Everytime we have to give estimates, we give 2: one using the current state of the code, one using what it would be after a big cleanup. And it worked.

comment Form screenshot for legal proof of clicking one of the checkboxes?
@MikeNakis : save your form with the values entered somewhere on disk, use an instance of a browser to open it and print it in a file. Easy. Or use things like code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf

comment Is browser fingerprinting a viable technique for identifying anonymous users?
"First, I don't think it's realistic to expect users to have JavaScript disabled on the modern web." Sincerely, you are wrong. With the noscript addon it's easy to have scripts disabled for your unknown website while enjoying the modern web on known sites.
