Twice daily backups?!? Wasn't that a constant backup?

comment Enterprise knowledge sharing?
@Pierre, how do see competition instead of collaboration? I respect your view, but I honestly don't see it. I'm curious.

comment Enterprise knowledge sharing?
Great question. We have the same issues. We call it the "what if <insert-name> gets hit by a bus" syndrome. Thanks for asking this.

comment What is the most egregious waste of money you have seen, and what did you do about it?
Ironically, it was their call to attend. Which is good. The need for change is seen on the macro scale. Once we're at the code level, it's more challenging. It's not perfect, but any way to bring transparency is good.

As I said, "it's on going" and not easy. I'm also not sure if it's any one thing. Adopting agile practices and bringing transparency is a start. Example employing a daily stand-up helps. The CTO attends this nearly every day and pays attention to the "face planting" that is reported with the legacy code. The helps to identify some things.

comment Will large screen increase develop productivity?
I agree w/ @Carson63000. I have two 24" at work and home. The primary (left) is landscaped and the right one is portrait. Takes a little getting used to, but it allows me to have an IDE open on the primary and then email, text editor, test VM, etc... on the secondary. Typically one app on top and one on the bottom.

comment I've stopped coding for fun, is this a bad sign?
you are so right. I live in FL, so I can run year round w/o extra gear. I try to run 20-30 minutes at lunch time every day. Makes the afternoon MUCH easier to deal with.

+1 for fitness, so many forgo this. I'd give another +1 for running if I could. :)

with all respect, when you've spent a late night (or two) and find the source (in C++ code) is a = instead of ==, it would carry some weight.
