comment Is Ken Thompson's compiler hack still a threat?
@supercat: Its highly unlikely that different compilers would produce the same bytecode for any non-trivial program due to different design decisions, optimizations etc. This raises the question - how would you even know that the binaries are identical?

comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
Sorry, maybe I'm being obtuse but how would an employer ever find out that you have a copy of your old code? It's hard to imagine a position where your personal computer is being examined for old code, and even less likely that you wouldn't have enough prior notice to destroy it. The only possibility is that looking at the code might influence you to write similar code again, but this is easily preventable. Chances are that the new problem and the time gap will foster a noticeably different solution anyways.
