comment Are there any benefits to removing unused script files in a web site/project?
Also good for security - a classic attack vector is through old versions.

comment Should I be worried about overengineering programming assignments given during interview process?
@DormoTheNord I'd say you are not over-engineering: having a good development process is something entirely different from over-engineering, and is (IMO) a good sign.

comment How can I salvage my internship?
@bhamlin: I suggest you do your best to reduce the expectations for what you are about to deliver. Also, break it down to extremely small problems, something you think you can do in a day (so that it's done for a week ;) and preferably, things that are useful as is, not just modules, that won't work without the core. This way, if you fail, your work will still be useful. Also, IMO, this experience is probably going to be very useful and stimulating (albeit not financially), yet will ultimately make a depressing memory.

comment What to do if you find a vulnerability in a competitor's site?
I've upvoted this answer a while ago, but I think now it might not give the best advice. Remember, your employer's legal department is not your lawyer. They might just report you personally to the other company or make some sort of settlement that screws you up. They do not defend your interests.

comment Python reading from stdin while doing other tasks
@user2246190 Threads are not the only way to do this, but IMO here it will be easier with multiple threads.

comment Object-Oriented Programming: Why “Oriented”?
I think you really hit the nail on that one: We do Object-oriented design, and that is why the languages are object-oriented - to allow us to express this design.
