comment Is personal branding necessary as a programmer?
I guess no it is not REQUIRED, but other than that I disagree as: 1. Getting your foot in the door is a big deal - you can't get job that you can't get an interview with. 2. Those contributions will be (hopefully) on top of their full-time work, but still important enough for them to find time to do, because they value them enough, and that's the point.

Sure, that's a little more of a practical answer. I will see what I can do in that fashion. Thanks.

+1 I am liking this answer the most so far.

comment css - use universal '*' selector vs. html or body selector?
+1 Thanks. Is the difference just about tables? I would like to accept an answer that is a bit more definitive or descriptive about what other elements are treated differently, as seen with tables. Additional reasons or situations leading to one or another would be good too.
