comment Is it illegal to rewrite every line of an open source project in a slightly different way, and use it in a closed source project?
If the ToS of Apple contradicts the GPL, having the copyright yourself will enable you to release it under more licenses, once under a license compatible with Apple ToS but also under the GPL.

comment Advice on designing web application with a 40+ year lifetime
To fullfill the requirement of a database being usefull for the next 40 years I would put it all on paper. Paper has proven itself, whereas digital storage mostly has proven how to lose lots of data fast. (but ofcourse preserve all data which should be destroyed)

comment Encouraging software engineers to track time
@M.Dudley I often have revelations in the car, probably because I get away from the tunnel-vision I sometimes get stuck in while in the office and have time to get a more distant view for a problem at hand. Especially XY problems I solve this way. It's not uncommon for me to come in in the morning and solve a problem in 3 lines of code where I spent considerable time trying to solve it the day before.

comment How to structure an application which reads UPC barcodes
In general a barcode is just an identifier of a product. So you can store it in your database as part of the product. And couple your price information to the product.

comment Buzzword for “performance-aware” software development
I think too many things fall under performance to catch in 1 term because it can mean so many things: low latency, real time, large datathroughput, high availability, low amount of bugs, secure etc. etc. etc.
