Computer Programmer by degree / Web Developer by career / General Tech Enthusiast for life

I've messed around with VirtualBox so much I see it in my sleep. However, it has been my greatest tool in learning and poking and prodding many different Linux distros.

comment Should I give the answer to a failed interview coding exercise?
'So no, you shouldn't "give" the answer, but you should expect to have the candidate insist on hearing the right answer after they fail. If they don't, its a huge red flag in my book.' See, I read that as "If they don't have complete disrespect for my time, it's a huge red flag". Some people follow the idea that you don't waste other people's time. I wouldn't ask because I was there for an interview, not to learn methodologies. Is this wrong? Maybe. But to find out that respecting other people and their time is a red flag? Concerning.

Interesting... My boss scored a 4 out of 5 on that test... I should alert him of the good news ;)

comment Should I help anonymity related projects?
@Jader Dias That's not true at all. It might enable it, but certainly not created solely for it. The less you know about me the safer I am in all my online and offline transactions. See news.softpedia.com/news/… for a perfect example from the opposite end of the spectrum.

comment Why are regular expressions so morbidly attractive?
I dunno... I think this pretty much sums up the whole of it. If you know regex, and don't know about the other methods, why would you go looking? You've already got a tool that, if done correctly, will handle the job. Until they stumble across the simpler method or are told about it, regex will be the catch-all method, even if more complex than it need be.

comment how to get clients and domain experts on board and interested
I'd like to think this is the wrong answer as well, but unfortunately I have yet to hear of a situation where a young developer is taken seriously without it.
