Hi, my name is Yap and I am a coffeeholic. On a good day, I can put in 3 hours of actual work.

comment Should curly braces appear on their own line?
I also like this style better, as it allows me to put comment above the else line when needed, and/or put a blank line between the if-block and the else-block to make things look less crammed. Bracket style #2 does nothing other than distancing the actions from the conditions. With that said, my favorite is definitely python's no bracket style :)

comment What programming related tasks are better done with keyboard + mouse than just keyboard?
@quant_dev, if you can get by with just keyboard, then good for you. I just can't take those who struggle daily with their imprecise touchpad or cheapo mouse, seriously as programmers, even if they are fast typists and equipped with Model M.

comment What programming related tasks are better done with keyboard + mouse than just keyboard?
My opinion is that it is important for a programmer to (a) get a good keyboard, learn to touch type, and learn the shortcuts of your editor AND (b) get a good mouse, get good at it, and learn the tricks of your environment (e.g. double click to select and middle click to paste in X). One doesn't preclude another. Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of people advising (a), while looking down at (b).
