comment Eliminating Magic Numbers: When is it time to say “No”?
@oosterwal my last professional embedded software job had pages of .h files filled with CRAZY_CONSTANTS_AT_LEAST_THIS_LONG. :/ But I fixed their Y2K bug by altering the PowerPC machine code buried in the VXworks package.

comment Does CTRL+C works in the whole world
Anecdotally, there are times when programs won't respond to one or other methods of cutting and pasting, so I'll try both. Then there's the linux-land middle click to paste. At times in Linux, it is like there are three different clipboards.

comment Recursion — is it “divide and conquer” or “code reuse”
+1 and to paraphrase: where the solution of problem applies to child layers. My real world example is finding credit card charges that contribute to a "batch". Accounting software will have the individual charges and the batch deposit into the checking account. My case might become a question here as stackoverflow wasn't too sharp about it. stackoverflow.com/questions/14719806

comment I've failed at PHP several times. Is Ruby the Cure?
If you are motivated, I believe you can learn it on your own. The challenge is finding real world situations where you need to accomplish something. THEN you're motivated to keep poking at a process to get to an end result. Just like Math in school... teachers that explain why I can learn from. Ones that don't? No better than just reading the book, which I'm horrible at.
