comment Why was Fortran never used to develop an Operating System?
@bbarker Exactly. That is why its a poor question. How can it be answered if we don't know the premise to be true? You seem to be really after why people chose C over FORTRAN for operating systems. So if that's actually your question, that is what you should be asking.

Can you provide evidence that FORTRAN was never used for this?

comment Is there a name to this coding practice shown in the example?
Sounds like the word you are looking for is 'refactoring'.

comment SaaS model, 1DB per client
Personally, I prefer 1 database for all clients where possible. Makes keeping the database schemas in sync a lot simpler, and you don't have to start messing around with master tables that point to the correct customer database. But, YMMV.

comment Why do most programming languages have special keyword or syntax for declaring functions?
This really should be a blog post, not a question.

comment How to validate a given domain is owned by the user?
This is what is done when validating certain ssl certs. Its likely not an automatic approach. But would make a good secondary option.

comment I would like to expand a SQL query to also get the name of the ID's it is selecting. How do I do that?
If I understand what you are after correctly, it sounds like you need to join in the block_types table. Or, do a sub-select (which might be easier to manage because you'd be referencing the table more than once)

comment Why don't developers make installation automatic on windows?
I think the premise of this question is wrong - many Windows applications can install via a streamlined 'use standard settings' option in an installer. Providing additional options, such as where to install the program, is simply the polite thing to do. I really dislike programs that don't let me decide where on a drive they will be installed.

comment Node.js on Apache server (Shared Hosting)
Node.js does not require Java. There is no problem running a Node.js app on a sever that is also running Apache. BUT... despite your hosting provider being poorly informed about Node, I'd agree with their decision - for shared hosting, I don't think I'd allow node.js apps to run since they are running as server applications and a poorly designed one can drag a server down to a crawl. You'd be better with a VPS - and there are plenty of inexpensive VPS hosts available.

comment What is the legality of making a mobile app version of an existing card or board game?
Game mechanics can't be patented in the US (IANAL), but a clone might certainly violate trademarks. This is off topic here, though.
