comment As a code monkey, how to discuss programming with a guy who almost has a doctorate in computer science
I bet he didn't :-) Look, as I said - quite a lot to exchange. I am not minimizing his accomplishments, it takes a lot to go all the way through PhD when you see others your age making money and raising a family. But also there is no experience like real life experience - having someone paying you to do a job, dealing with pressures and relationships beyond academia and so forth. Believe me, my son is in Medical School, he tells me it is hard sometimes knowing that he will only be able to start "real work" when he is more than 30 years old.

comment Under what circumstances should error messages be presented to the user?
I guess the downvoter is one of those that likes to show the users cryptic messages - "Not enough memory to display this dialog." or "Error Keyboard not found. Press F1 to continue."

comment Handling my antiquated coworker
@Kortuk - that is a very good point, and if that is true then the OP is in real trouble.

If he doesn't then it is even more important that the manager (assuming there is one) knows about it.
