comment How do you go about understanding others' code?
Thanks for the book tip, but you did not state Folwers refactoring methods anywhere in your post, so I assumed you meant refactoring to your own set of standards. Which might be another set of standards by your co-workers, resulting in the neverending stories and holy wars. Therefor refactoring is not always the answer.

comment How do you go about understanding others' code?
@bold: no, of course there is no way, but to refactor all the code you come across seems a bit overkill to me.. Just learn to adjust to other peoples code style, instead of refactoring (and perhaps breaking) working code.

And when people need to view your code, they refactor it again? Neverending story (hum: hihihihihihihi)..

comment How forgiving do you need to be on new employees?
Interesting point you raise. Never thought about it from the other side. But it still feels that you are not doing something wrong, when the only thing is that styles don't exactly match..

Hehe and put in something like: "Since you are not paying me, why should people pay you for "service X" provided on your site?"

comment What mistakes do your users make, and how can you update your application to handle them?
Not really John.. If the outlook programmers had thought this through they would not have placed that CheckBox over there or gave it a more meaningful label. Your dad is not an idiot: this feature was not thought over or been through usuability tests. Software is not here to make us feel stupid! :)
