comment Why has C prevailed over Pascal?
I think SK-logic is probably right. My understanding about why MS switched to C from Pascal very early on was because it was easier to find C programmers - due largely, I suspect - because Unix was taking hold in universities.

comment Purely technical reasons for PHP as a first choice?

comment Why has C prevailed over Pascal?
@MetalMikester, thats some Grade A truth right there. They tossed aside the small, independent developers while chasing the 'big money' in corporate sales. And unfortunately, there's still some of that left, even with new owners.

comment What is a reasonable and secure password requirement for user registration?
+1, I completely agree w/ Wayne. A large, if not the largest chunk of security threats come from 'the inside'. Policies that force users to end up writing down passwords completely defeat the purpose.
