comment Should we design programs to randomly kill themselves?
@MarkBrackett Unfortunately, the periodic restart seems to serve the opposite purpose by making programmers casual about bad code. If the problems caused by bad code were a pain in the neck to fix, we'd be less likely to write bad code.

comment Do you write titles in code comments?
+1 from me. In large code files, I like to have more than just whitespace separating logical sections. Yes, I think that if your function is loooooong then you need to split it up, but I find it a lot easier to read if parts are separated by comments.
