One thing I do occasionally miss about the olden days programming in BASIC is "OPTION BASE"...

comment Why don't more companies hire remotely?
+1, as the perceived benefits of being face to face don't hold up to scrutiny. Statistically it's been shown that workers are more productive when working remotely vs. locally as there is less distraction. I see the value in face to face communication to help get to know your peers and make work more enjoyable. However, from a pure efficiency and effectiveness standpoint, remote does win.

By Lisp, you mean ClojureScript of course. :-)

comment What licenses are compatible with MASM32's license requirements?
From what I read, Microsoft made MASM itself freely available under a EULA that brings about the "MS-only operating system" requirement. The rest of "MASM32" is an SDK that Hutch developed himself and packaged with MASM in accordance with the MS EULA.

comment What licenses are compatible with MASM32's license requirements?
The restrictions do make it awkward since I'd hoped to share my source code freely, but in today's world that's not safe without a license unfortunately. Alternate environments are available (JWASM, etc.), but MASM32 really is the cleanest set of tools IMO. Oh well, I guess I'll have to decide between MASM32 and being able to share my code.

comment I'm doing 90% maintenance and 10% development, is this normal?
For all those telling you to put in your 2 weeks notice and get out of there, well, I'd say to not be that aggressive. I've got numerous programmer and IT friends that can't even get back into the industry right now. They'd kill (probably not literally, but I dunno, some have been out of work for a couple years now) for even cashier level pay at this point. Don't leave one job until you've got the next one in the bag.

comment Single programmer working on a project from different computers: is Dropbox a good solution?
+1 for the remote desktop solution. That's the route I've taken and it's working out great. I have a VM in the cloud with all my stuff on it and I just connect to it from wherever I happen to be and whatever device happens to be available. As long as I've got 1 Mib/s of bandwidth available the experience is fine.
