comment How can I learn about Distributed Software Systems as efficiently as possible?
@Mark Trapp Would not "I'm trying to find a good base of literature from which to learn distributed operations" qualify as a specific problem? I've seen many other "recommended book list" questions....

Not recent, but informative nonetheless. Good find.

comment What are developer's problems with helpful error messages?
Certainly possible; but the code to match the DB to the process (especially over the network) may be complicated/slow/error prone itself, which could result in some additonal frustration ("I'm just trying to restore the local (*#%^!% file!!!! WHY DO I CARE THAT THE NETWORK SHARES ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE!??!?!")

comment What personal milestones can you use to measure growth in your programming abilities?
How does one locate a "local development scene"? I'm completely unfamiliar with that concept.

comment Why does Microsoft have such a bad reputation with the people involved in open source?
I always thought that Adobe was the new Microsoft, but that might be a personal thing against their desktop software.

comment Is it ever ok to have an empty catch statement?
This, a million times. Especially when you consider that if you're logging, you may be in a terrible state; you could be out of memory, could be crashing, could be anything. At this point, when you're logging an error, and THAT fails, the only responsible thing to do is nothing; you have no guarantee that anything you try will not make it worse.
