comment How should I remember what I was doing and why on a project three months back?
@MainMa then commit and push to a branch named next-steps. I'm not sure what your concerns about the specifics of revision control approach have to do with the basic premise of a failing test as an aid in kickstarting your brain when coming back to something. Again, this was proposed in addition to the standard approaches such as backlogs, to-do lists, etc.

comment Is this mini-DSL for hiding URI passwords compatible with the URI spec?
If you generally have a one-to-one mapping between URIs and passwords, why not simply model it as such? Store URIs minus passwords, and have a separate table/configuration/store where given input of URI, returns the password for that URI. Why some custom mini-DSL just for this?

comment Is this mini-DSL for hiding URI passwords compatible with the URI spec?
Why do the username and passwords need to be stored in the URI? Why not have a generic mechanism to lookup the username/password based on the URI, instead? Do you really need to have a custom lookup mechanism per URI ?

comment Can a webservice that uses JSON over POST be classified as RESTful?
In particular, this does not seem to adhere to the "Uniform Interface" constraint: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment TDD and Version Control
Even if you aren't pushing, making a commit with a broken state will make "git bisect" operations much harder, as you will have to wade through tons of failing revisions. At least do a rebase and squash the failing commit with the successful implementation before pushing.

comment Is Java to Linux what .NET is to Windows?
@StevenElliottJr No, it isn't. Miguel decided to work on Mono after his experiences working on Evolution. His hope was to make writing applications like Evolution easier. Evo is still written primarily in C (with plugins possible in several languages).

@MartinBeckett Don't joke, some of us actually do use MUMPS at work!
