comment It is safe to accept money for open source software that you've written?
If you do accept money for it (and I fail to see any reason not to), just make sure its via paypal or something similar. I would not recommend accepting paper checks, or handing out your bank acct info.

comment How can I sell my boss on Python+Django instead of PHP+a different framework?
@NoBugs I'm sure that would be a great argument if the OP wasn't building a website. But the point seems moot because this is an almost 3 year old, closed question. I'm sure the project has long since been finished anyways, whichever language they went with.

comment Why is the use of JavaScript in HREF attributes discouraged?
You should cite some sources to validate the premise of your post. Otherwise you're into blog rant territory.

comment Why is PHP so hated?
Aren't there two types of languages... the ones everyone hate, and the ones no one uses.

comment local communications between two apps
@MichaelT No, I meant for the client, instead of a C++ app. Barring further explanation, he seems to be describing a typical case for a run-of-the-mill web app.

comment Why don't replace HTML with JSON as base web design technology?
Why don't you create a javascript library that translates JSON into HTML to test it out? All you'd need is a single <script> tag.

comment Would it make sense to have a database table with only one record for tracking site summary stats?
Depending on the stats you need, you might be able to remove the need for aggregate queries (either updating after each transaction, periodic queries, views, etc) by using a running tally system. As a transaction is added, add that value to the your total as well.

comment How to avoid spaghetti code when I have a lot of conditions?
It sounds like you have a data problem, not a coding problem. You say the number of systems can change, but you are hard-coding columns for each system. Normalize that and you'll simplify the problem.

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.
