I decided to backpack around the West Coast instead of going to a state university. Fortunately, I discovered a love of computers before I picked my major...I'm a late bloomer.

comment Computers that operate exclusively on boolean algebra
Those links point to computers that are modeling bit-wise logic using things other than silicon and copper. I saw nothing of another base besides binary. Is there another number system used in computing?

I just gotta say...your picture makes me want to quote Walter, but I know the moderators will ban my comment!

comment How many monitors do you use? Why? How they are used?
This is nearly identical to what I use at home...the 'big job' up top, and the reference below...sometimes, it switches places...who knows...but I can always take the laptop out the door with me, if need be. Perfect setup.

comment Why is cleverness considered harmful in programming by some people?
Best answer. The mantra: write simple baseline, starter code that's braindead and slow as all get up...and then make it a comment when you boil it down to an unreadable one-liner. That's how you learn all the dirty tricks in your language!

comment What do you do when one thinks the code isn't complicated enough?
I second @alb. Most times the Drupal/Joomla crowd finds the whole 3 SQL queries thing to be wonderful, until the next request turns the "custom cookie cutter" approach into a feat of trial and error.

comment Describing the Difference Between Web Library and Web Framework
+1...I said...look at the <script src='http://....>...notice how it's on the web? That's typical of libraries. Frameworks? You store those in your project (they don't do a lot of things outside of their sole purpose - linking DOM-things to OO-things, and eventually tables.

comment Describing the Difference Between Web Library and Web Framework
Im sorry to say this but I used the dreaded "D" word to relate Knockout to an MTV framework. Apparently that was a trigger for my boss. +1 for going where I did! :D
