@Craig: Out of pure interest and desire to learn something new I'm tempted to pick a small project and get it up and running in MVC and Rails now to see how they compare.

comment How to interview someone you know well?
this would be the best option, but what if for some reason you can't say no, and not to the person you have to interview, but the company that asks you to do so

comment Is it ever ok to have an empty catch statement?
I'm not familiar D, but I assume it is possible to do something like bool TryParse(string line, out double valToParse), which may be cleaner.

comment Do you write bad code when under pressure?
Agreed. However, when you are just a developer, you may not have a say in the planning phase and find yourself in this situation not because or your own mistakes.

@Chris: Two monitors give the flexibility that one, no matter how large, can't, especially if you use swing arms. You can move monitors around and rotate widescreens vertically.

comment Should you document everything or just most?
@Alan and @Ryan: the comment was not meant to contradict Ryan. It was just a play on words :) Btw, I agree with everything Ryan says, except "In an ideal world, yes, you would document everything." In an ideal world you won't have to document anything, the code would be self-documenting and self-explaining.

The exact same experience at the .NET user group I attend in southern Ontario. Great place to network, learn something, and eat pizza.
