comment “Don't do programming after a few years of starting career”. Is this a fair advice?
There exist people who don't understand what we (programmers) do. There exist people who think that Computer Science/Engineering can be grabbed by completing some 2/3 months courses outside University. Programming is challenging. Not everyone can become a programmer. Being a programmer, do you want to switch to other non-challenging career (well, I am a programmer and other careers are not-so-challenging to me)? Isn't it cool that you're doing something which can't be done by just anyone?

True. Turning off compiler optimization works.

This is 2011 and a newer version of compiler is supposed to be smarter. But alas, it doesn't!

comment Guidelines About Using Code Repository
@Matthieu: my purpose of the post is to get an idea of all those features (i don't know about centralized/decentralized systems) and when to use them, whatever the system is (centralized/decentralized). i want to learn the methods.

comment Stuff every programmer needs while working
@Billy ONeal: i've failed to get our system admin's attention that programmers also need better monitor. according to our company policy, only game developers and graphics designers could have high resolution/better monitor.

comment Stuff every programmer needs while working
@Xepoch: i work for embedded devices. on a typical busy day i need to run the compiler+IDE of the microcontoller, the debugger to debug firmware, VS 2008 as editor (because the IDE comes with the compiler sucks and i'm comfortable with vs), firefox for internet, yahoo messenger, Omega TV - a custom software that can talk to the firmware, 2/3 windows explorer windows, 0-3 pdf/doc/xls files. now you guess why do i feel comfortable when work from home than office.

comment Stuff every programmer needs while working
@Billy ONeal: i work in a PC having 15" LCD with response time 50ms. When i scroll a page with text i get irritated with the ghosting effect. and i agree, color reproduction and viewing angle are very important. the LCD spec i specified is actually taken from my own home pc. i can work more efficiently in home than in office.

@Xepoch, don't have idea what VT100 terminals are and what do you mean by run circles.... a fast machine will compile my code faster, will boot/restart my pc faster, will load applications faster, large ram will help to run several applications simultaneously etc.
