I like to spend time with my lovely wife, our two beautiful daughters, and our dog. I'm also a fan of geek humor, and I've been known to flip out and write code… elegant code, if I'm really lucky.

comment Why does git use hashes instead of revision numbers?
@Izkata Mercurial does not have a similar problem. They use hashes, just like git. They also provide a local-only rev number for ease of typing.

comment Is a company order to switch to a certain IDE a red flag?
@mikera If any company thinks they need "… to hire and train 100 entry-level Java coders in India…" then that is a huge red flag right there. If the company thinks that the best approach to software is to throw tons of inexperienced people in a timezone that's shifted 8-11 hours (from the U.S., at least), it's probably not the sort of place that will be very satisfying to work. Or to provide much in the way of job security, either.

comment Why is Mercurial considered to be easier than Git?
The hg equivalent to git branches are actually called bookmarks. As far as I know, hg branches don't have an equivalent in git.
