comment What are some famous one-liner or two-liner programs and equations?
@Greg, just wait, APL uses more than the roman and greek alphabets because there weren't enough letters and symbols already; backspace (more properly called "overstrike") is also used because some characters need to be typed on top of other characters. One such was a divide symbol on top of a square, which represented matrix inversion (if unary operator, or multiplication by the inverted matrix if it was used as a binary operator).

comment Is it ever ok to have an empty catch statement?
Great point. In my logging code, I also like to add the InnerMessage for the exception. Many times this is null, so trying to add it would blow up the logging itself.

comment How do programmers quit a job?
@Guzica, I am 50 years old. I've seen a lot of stupid, bad, malevolent and broken things happen in my working career. RogueCoder, the guy asking the original question is 18 and probably hasn't met a wide array of idiocy yet. But to answer your question, many employers are quite "hardball" and escort you out the door when you give notice (it is nothing personal, just business). Financial companies (like banks) here have a tendency to discharge folks who have been overheard to say they are interviewing for a new job. Many companies are civilized - the ones that aren't can be problems.

comment “Overtime is part of the job” true but a bad attitude?
My advice is to read the book Death March. It should give you an idea of whether your boss is abusing you, or incompetent, and what options to take. rads.stackoverflow.com/amzn/click/013143635X
