comment Which hashing algorithm is best for uniqueness and speed?
I'm a bit late to this party but I was wondering how md5 compares with that list. I've found it to be a bit faster than crc, but I don't know how it compares in terms of collisions to the others.

comment Avoid ELSE when setting a variable?
All I am trying to achieve is improving my coding by getting opinions from my peers. Where is a good place to go for this sort of discussion? Anywhere else in stackexchange? (old school forums are so last decade ;-) )

comment Avoid ELSE when setting a variable?
I thought subjective questions were allowed in programmers.stackexchange.com (as opposed to stackoverflow). Am I wrong? How can anything tagged coding-style be anything but subjective?

comment Avoid ELSE when setting a variable?
I do like the conditional operator (?) version, but it can quickly get unreadable if there is more than just simple code in it. For instance if "othervalue" and "defaultvalue" are actually the result of some format string statement it can get quite long.

comment Avoid ELSE when setting a variable?
It's a valid point though I find I prefer the aesthetics of the code without them if there is only one line in the condition.
