comment Why does everyone use Git in a centralized manner?
There are plenty of ways of making a git repo visible without running any special daemon; it can be accessed via pretty much any file share (smb, sshfs, etc.), and can even be made available as a plain ol' HTTP store as well.

@Luaan After thinking about this for a while, I realized you're right. I've changed the wording a bit - does this capture the distinction a bit better?

comment How to define “or” logically
If you're doing pure 1-bit boolean values, then addition still doesn't work, since 1+1 = 0. :)

comment How to define “or” logically
These approaches are fundamentally flawed. Consider -1+1 for arg1+arg2, -1 and 0 for max(arg1,arg2), etc.

@Zack Heck, even C64 BASIC didn't interpret the source code directly.

comment Is it poor programming practice to pass parameters as Objects?
+1 for showing by example one of the few times to do this - thus being the exception that proves the rule.

comment Keep a programming language backwards compatible vs. fixing its flaws
Also, PHP has been slowly deprecating functionality with every single release - and a LOT of stuff breaks as a result. Unfortunately, PHP's stuck in a difficult spot where they have a hard time even producing deprecation warnings in a way that developers will see that won't end up disrupting sites anyway.

comment Unwritten rules of rewriting another team member's code
Yep, I've learned from experience that some developers can get extremely agitated if you even fix bugs in their code without asking. Of course, this was on a project with no issue tracking or task planning, and I'm amazed it ever even shipped.

comment Is it any good to use binary arithmetic in a C++ code like “C style”?
Today, C compilers are smart enough to optimize a*2 into a<<1 where appropriate. There's no need to refer to that as "the C style" - that is really more "the low-level assembly coder from the 1980s writing C" style. (Also, these days, mul is generally just as fast as shl, and in some cases could be faster. Don't try to out-optimize the compiler based on possibly-antiquated knowledge.)

comment Why is verbosity bad for a programming language?
While we're at it, "conciseness" is a rather cumbersome way of saying "concision."
