comment On developing deep programming knowledge
That is weird. Are delegates combined like stacks and does delegate removal silently fail if the smaller stack doesn't match the top of the other stack?

"I can understand why Eric knows this; he's on the compiler team, so he has to know." - chances are he knows this because he thought it up in the first place. I doubt he had to 'find out' that it works like this :)

comment Should I use a parser generator or should I roll my own custom lexer and parser code?
I've already finished building my own lexer generator and I was quite far along with building my own parser generator when I decided to implement a different algorithm instead. It didn't take me that long to get it all working, but then again I didn't aim for 'high performance', just 'good performance' and 'great asymptotic performance' - Unicode is a bitch to get good running times for and using C# already imposes a performance overhead.

comment What are the hardest parts of the C++/C#/Java programming languages?
Re-reading your question ("I'm trying to use this to guage my current level of ability and what i wish to aim for."), then no concrete answer will ever answer your question: if you want to be proficient at a language, you need to know many different parts of it: there is no linear path from the easy stuff to the hard stuff.

comment What programming language generates fewest hard-to-find bugs?
C# allows safe pointers: all pointer arithmetic is checked. Therefore, I believe it should be up there with Java.

comment What are the main advantages and disadvantages of LL and LR parsing?
I personally wonder if this is the best site for these kinds of questions. I'm not sure if StackOverflow or CSTheory would be a better place though...
