comment How important is self-teaching in the programming field?
For those of us that are not talented, do not pick up things immediately, require reading and using the same things over and over until they get it, and ask lots of questions which are answered by really generous and patient people, the Myth crucial for inspiration in the hard times.

comment Why is “Select * from table” considered bad practice
@cHao Why does "..and then proceed to create a Customer from each row. LINQ beats the pants off that." In the example you gave above? It is solely because of the object-relational impedance mismatch.

comment How do you respond to a request for 'emergency contact information' for when you are on vacation?
@burnt_hand The system? You meant those folks that hired me, trained me, help me to pay my bills; those evil employers of mine that I give my best to because they gave me an outlet to do so? Or do you mean the ones that I've given so much to that they dare not ask for one more thing because they are already an unfair bunch of blood suckers who care nothing for me but that I produce code like a monkey?
