comment If a fluent coder disregards good practices, doesn't his fluency work against him?
@gnat The question being "What do you think of that?", my answer was what I thought. I'm still of the same opinion: fluency (thus being able to do quick solutions, hacks, etc) can lead to harmful code in the long run. You can't just be fluent in a language, you have to know how to organize code.

comment How can I deal with a team member who dislikes making comments in code?
@Saul, I've been there too. It's hard to change people. Keep at it. Another approach, after about 6 months, your old code doesn't even look familiar. It's become someone elses. Let him re-read some of his old stuff from a while ago. Or, you can use peer pressure: "I can understand everyone else's code at a glance." At some point, you (and he) have to understand that you're paid to create software. Time is precious. Optimize time developing by leaving no ambiguities.

comment How can I deal with a team member who dislikes making comments in code?
@Saul In that case, reply "I've read it and could not understand it all. I should not have to run it to know what it does."

comment Keeping an enum and a table in sync
Well yes, that's the idea. But if I set the ID's to one place an to others, I'm working off the assumption that they are both right. It's a loose link, no?
