comment Is it common for developer to not have an administrator account?
I don't know if it's common but I can see a benefit: you will be forced to make programs that don't require an administrator account, making them more compatible for normal users.

comment Tournament bracket method to put distance between teammates
The algorithm is quite simple: make a list of all competitors, sorted by team. Make 2 buckets, now start filling putting alternating one from the list in 1 bucket and another in the other. Now repeat this exact process recursively for each bucket (which should still be sorted by team) done.

comment Should an Animal be abstract or allow for instantiation to represent a “general” instance?
When you're working with animals you can't really instantiate a class dog, because what would it be? A dog has a race: Doberman for instance. In the real world, where you're programming, you can easily instantiate your TStringList class, work with and but also derive a TStringListWithPictures from it and work with that. To me the animal references just make it harder to think about OO.

comment Avoiding polling with components
Look at databases replication techniques. You're trying to reinvent the wheel for a something that is actually quite hard to implement.

comment Customer is “deeply disappointed” in software because of one bug. How to reply?
Maybe explain sometime the economics of software to your customer? You could put 100 people on the project for a year his software would contain a lot less bugs but still not be bug free, but would cost 10 Million dollar.

comment Is there anything inherently bad about mixing paradigms in an application?
@Dan Pantry do you mean procedural (using function and procedures) in a non-oop way rather than functional as in "the functional programming paradigm" ?

comment Why would programmers ignore ISO standards?
I'm not familiar with Oracle, but when using SQL Server or MySQL I too of course use their respective date datatypes when storing dates. But when writing queries with dates, they both recognize yyyymmdd very well where it's hit or miss when you use a locale date.
