comment My boss decided to add a “person to blame” field to every bug report. How can I convince him that it's a bad idea?
In case of escalation, elaborate in each and every issue what lead to the issue. Elaborate on the most basic groundings in code, project history and project management and elaborate on why the person in the field is not solely to blame or why there is none selected.

comment Should developers accept overtime/weekend work/denied bonus payments?
I got an awesome workplace. There’s nothing I could complaining about (as one can even freely suggest things). Dunno about you, but I made my right choice on the employer.

comment Are there any valid reasons for disallowing characters and limiting the length of passwords?
Although that’s right it’s always a trade-off. You don’t want to always calculate the best hash which takes the longest. Hence asymmetric handshake vs symmetric data stream in VPN etc.

comment Ready to Open source the software, but want to make some money out of it
To clarify: I doubt the (great) majority goes by the OSI definition. At least that is my impression.

comment Ready to Open source the software, but want to make some money out of it
I did not think of free software when reading this question on open source. I have always thought of open source as, well, source open for viewing. That’s what the term says. Hence my comment. That’s also why I prefer the FSFs definition and using the term free software to differentiate from open sourced software. How do you call software with viewable source, which is not free software?

Only the OSI definition of “open source” limits you to specific licenses. If you just mean to open your source code for viewing, you can do whatever.

@delnan: That is the OSI definition of Open Source. The matter of opening the code to the public does not need the license you release it under to be a free software license. The term open source is often used as just opening the source for viewing, while free software is limited to specific things as that’s a term heavily influenced by the FSF, and not as ambiguous.
