comment Should a string constant be defined if it's only going to be used once?
@JeffO Hey Jeff, I wasn't trying to be mean or sarcastic, was trying (and I guess failed) to be funny. It's late (or early) and I'm tired, so I apologize if you were put off by my comment.

And nice updates. Keep the faith, I won't forget to mark an answer as such when the time comes.

@Ingo not looking to change careers. A brief skim of my question may have mislead you to think I'm weighing the pros/cons of continuing my career path, but that's not the case :) that being said, there are lots of fascinating occupations out there, more than one of which have caught my eye and remain as far from software as Justin Bieber is from being a musician.

@Jeffo If only there was some kind of language we could use to speed up that process and allow only typing the strings, maybe matching them together to create the if statements systematically, some kind of language... We could call it a programming language even! Sorry... Couldn't help myself...

Good remarks for sure, this resonates with me. See update if you're wondering why I'm restraining from marking any response as "correct" just yet.
