+1 @DeveloperArt I totally brain farted about the statelessness. :)

comment Why aren't all programs being turned into web apps?
I find that, in general, the problem domains in most web apps tend to be much simpler than other apps, but the implementation tends to me far more complex. Any web app nowadays requires the dev to know a myriad of languages: html, xml, json, javascript, php/ruby/java/c#, and sql; as well as a zillion different browser quirks, and multipe frameworks. On the other hand, other types of dev domains tend to be far more complicated, yet require the dev to know fewer technologies; like C#/Sql or Java/Oracle. Occasionally, these overlap, but not often.

You could start by linking to your project in this post. People might find it interesting and want to help out.

comment Returning from a long function on the first false condition
@Frustrated - I'm aware of that. I am firmly against that philosophy. A single exit point almost always clutters the code, IMO. Unfortunately, my hastily thrown together example doesn't illustrate the benefit of multiple returns.

@Frits - Good catch. That's what you get when you throw together code with no forethought. :)

comment How can I get programmers to stop writing code vulnerable to SQL injection?
@Roger - it's only minor until you get hacked. :) I think that putting code into production without a review (no matter the level of the developer) is a failure. Unfortunately, it is a very common practice in a lot of companies; and, ime, it usually takes a major oh-$4!t before management starts to value things like code reviews.

comment Avoid Postfix Increment Operator
I haven't checked this in years, but in MS Visual C++ 6, the compiler was smart enought to always generate the exact same assembly for ++i and i++ if they were used on a single line or in a for loop. So there was absolutely no performance lost for using post-fix.

comment How to hire a web-programmer : for non-programmer
I think you need to clarify your question. Are you a non-programmer attempting to hir a web-programmer? Also, I think you need to clarify what you mean by 'true "live" website requirements.'
