comment Were Java and Flash necessary pre-cursors to JavaScript and HTML5?
Thanks for the comments - I don't quite get why this question was considered "opinion-based".

comment Should I change the name of the WTFPL?
What makes you so sure that Sam Hocevar is claiming copyright over it? I read the third line as a kind of foobar placeholder. Have to say I'm also unclear on what he means by "the name" - does he mean the "DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO PUBLIC LICENSE" title?

comment Started wrong with a project. Should I start over?
If you want to be a professional software engineer, ship. If you want to be a hobbyist programmer, by all means, rewrite constantly, but don't expect anyone to pay you for it.

comment Is it okay to not completely understand code functionality?
I think there's a distinction here between "understanding" and "being capable of understanding". Copy/pasting code that you couldn't understand if you stared at it is a different proposition to copy/pasting code that you're happy to look at more closely if something goes wrong.

comment Writing commit messages as a solo developer?
Interesting to revisit this answer. I've taken a somewhat extreme position recently: no commit messages at all. But that's on a pretty flat HTML/JS project where I can't imagine ever attempting to track down a regression. Any effort spent writing commit messages would almost certainly be better spent somewhere else. (Not all projects are in this category!)
