comment Does anyone use virtual machines for web development, and why?
@Jesse Millikan I'm not sure what you mean. Isn't Squeak and Pharo a programming language? I'm trying to understand how they relate to virtual machines.

+1 for "...spend hours changing UI layout..." I fall into that trap too far too often.

And this is when they attempt to take the development to cheaper off-shore alternatives. Only to find out much later that it turned out to be even more expensive. And less of what they really needed, because of the physical separation and communication challenges between the development team and customer.

Me: "I can try but it is not my specialty" Them: "You work with computers don't you? Can't you just like re-program it or something?" Me: Sigh.....

Well, as "Will" says, "I prepend with the underscore so that my private variables are grouped in my intellisense. However, I only do this for variables scoped to a type. Variables declared within a method or narrower scope I leave the underscore off. Makes it easy to keep them separate and keep less used variables together." and I have to agree with him.
