comment Why is FRACTRAN turing complete?
The reason multiplication is a good example of turing completeness is because it requires both looping and storage. Although it isn't a full test as to if something is turing complete. The best "proof" is to write a brainfuck emulator in it

comment Which hashing algorithm is best for uniqueness and speed?
@Tracker1 it's been a while, but this question was not at all about security. This was for hashes in a hash table, not for hashing passwords

comment Is it appropriate for interviewers to ask candidates for their Stack Exchange user name?
heh. I actually put my stackoverflow CV link on my resume, so it's pretty apparent to people interviewing me that I'm active on stackoverflow, and it was a significant deciding factor in getting hired for my current job

comment Writing a bootloader with no bootloader
Don't forget toggle switches! Many early computers had a row of toggle switches so that you could manually load a pre-bootloader to read from floppy or tape to load the actual bootloader and OS

comment How can I deal with a team member who dislikes making comments in code?
@ChrisLee at my company code review policies aren't enforced technically, but there is a policy that before a story can be marked as being Ready For Test, it must be code reviewed, no matter who did the development work. It's quite interesting having to code review when the CTO makes a check in though lol

comment Is there a good name for “classic” .NET?
@DocBrown that's what I thought, but it's hard to distinguish. Imagine a product where you say "we support .Net for Windows Phone, .Net for Windows Store, and .Net Framework". The last bit seems really weird to say

comment How does a non-technical manager add value to team of self-motivated software developers?
This over and over. Even for a technical manager, this is still the biggest part of their job.
