comment Are there any Phone Interview equivalents to FizzBuzz?
Everyone should know that Regex is the best way to validate an E-Mail address! Especially when the Regex for it is only 6,343 characters long!

comment Why do operating systems do low level stuff in C and C++? Why not just C++?
A 32-bit C++ compiler for ARM? If you wanted, you could compile LLVM from the source yourself after a few modifications to get a C++ compiler for iOS.

comment Can I, as author and copyright holder, relicense my code under a more liberal license after it has been published under a more restrictive license?
Something you may want to consider is the LGPL.

However, if that GPL project is required to either have a basic functioning program, or it's distributed with their program, their program must be under GPL. That's where the LGPL comes in.

A nice example of relicensing for commercial use while still providing an open-source version is Qt.

comment First ATMs programming language
Could it be that they weren't actually programmed, but just complex circuitry designed for the task? The same kind of stuff that caused Intel to create the MOS-4 series which included the 4004.

If we're dealing with C here, we could just abuse #define ;)

comment What exactly is “big O” notation?
@Telastyn I don't really understand the subject matter. It's like trying to learn something with no prior knowledge. All the sites you visit use jargon you don't understand. You need school to lead you in somewhat. That's what's happening here. I don't know anything regarding algorithms. Another thing is I don't know what the base of the logarithm would be.
