comment Functional Programming: Are Tuples a viable replacement for Types?
@Programmin Tool - from your long comment - you are right, the word Type is used differently between the two languages, and while there is overlap, they are not the same.

#4 from the list - various devices/systems/servers/apps communicating.

comment Functional Programming: Are Tuples a viable replacement for Types?
The premise of your question seems flawed, given the fact that Haskell has extremely strong type concepts. Suggest reading more about Haskell - in particular the data keyword and record syntax.

comment How to do a login page for third party service without letting them sign on?
Merely redirect and wrap their pages in your own code. Have you not seen sites that when you visit a link from them, leave a bar or other navigation tool at the top of the screen? So they ask you for a page, you do various http-GET to their web site to get information to build your own page.

comment Alternate string formatting options in C++?
Echoing @KarlBielefeldt - what is your specific use case? If logging - pantheios.org may help some. If something else - perhaps more details will lead to a better set of answers...

comment Why does shared state degrade performance?
@JoeGeeky - another thought: does using the cache add a level of indirection? If frequently accessed, chasing down an extra pointer deref (or MSIL equiv) could add some time over a local less-indirect copy.

comment Agile,Waterfall and requirement changes
@maple_shaft is right - quality is (at least mostly) orthagonal to the requirement change. Give me a req: I start writing good code. If I am done, and get a new req, or half-done and get a change, I start (re)writing good code. After having highlighted the impact to the current schedule/commitment/etc.

comment Can you successfully keep managing when you are forced back into development?
I used to shut my door frequently when I needed to (and at one point I actually had a physical door!) I was not a full-time developer, yes, so my tasks were by necessity more bite sized than others sure.

comment How can I inspire engineers to positively conduct telephone interviews
"Internal and non-billable" are likely a key problem. Depending on how engineers, and their management are incented, any time taken away from their core (read: billable) work could be seen as stealing from the company, or perhaps worse: having to work overtime to make it up. Work our your incentives / priorities.

comment Use case notation for login
Somewhere I have read (but my google-fu is failing me) that in general login should not be on the (every/all) use case(s); because in general is is not what the user is actually trying to do. It is a side-effect or pre-condition, but putting it on the use case clouds the users intentions.
