comment What is a good Planned Release/Freeze/Beta Methodology?
Are you asking about how to make decisions on when to freeze the code and move it to production, or about the mechanics of how to move something into production?

comment How to get manager to get me favorable projects
@iciw, if he's doing this to look good to his boss, and if it works, then they're BOTH bad managers. Their job is to use the resources on hand to get things done. His manager shouldn't be rating him on whether he can do hands-on work when he has a team that can do it.

comment How do you stop yourself from bringing work home?
@Chris: maybe you need something that requires MORE of a time commitment, in terms of having fixed times where you do it. And, as others have suggested, something physically demanding will help reduce your stress. Something like a two-day-per-week martial arts class would meet both of these criteria. It won't take a lot of hours, but you'll have fixed times when you need to go. This might help you get out of the rut of "it'll take days to take pictures, so I can't do that now, so I'M GETTING MORE STRESSED AAIIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!"

comment Why does the Lisp community prefer to accumulate all the parentheses at the end of the function?
I'm told that back in the days of punch cards, it was common practice to end a Lisp program with an extra card with 80 right parentheses on it, just to make sure there were enough to match all of the open parentheses in the program.

comment How to say effectively to a manager that you missed the 'deadline'
It will also prevent surprises to your manager. Managers HATE surprises. It's always better to be early with the bad news, to give him more time to react and to manage the situation.

comment Training materials - books vs webcasts
Possible duplicate of a few of the "related" items coming up on the right. There are lots of training classes out there, and there should be enough reviews out there to help you.
