comment Difference between '\n' and '\r\n'
@fredrick: Most monitors these days are LCD, but everything still works on the vertical and horizontal retrace intervals that CRTs needed. It's just not worth it to change: the amount of stuff based on and around it is staggering.

comment Should I be worried if I solve a lot of my problems the same way?
This. It's only an issue if you find yourself forcing your solution on a problem where it doesn't work. If all your problems are nails, you should use a hammer, but if you find yourself trying to hammer in a screw, you should step back.

comment Why are more programmers not freelance these days?
+1: I was a pretty successful freelancer for years, but I couldn't stand marketing myself, and dealing with billing and crap like that. Traded it for a 9to5, and I haven't really had any regrets.

comment How can I promote clean coding at my workplace?
+1: If you're in the trenches, the worst thing you can do is spend time throwing down on your coworkers. You can broach the subject your boss, and leave it to him to push the change. That's his job.

comment How to get money from reluctant client?
I actually had that happen to me, and they absolutely sued me for "lost" revenue. Cost about 1,000 bucks in fees and about as many gray hairs. There are ways to deal with deadbeats, but there are also legal protections for deadbeats, and you don't want to put yourself in the wrong.

comment Citations for inadvisability of globally unique password
+1: You should never ever ever let on that any other user has the same password. Talk about a massive security flaw...You could run brute force password attacks by changing your password repeatedly. That'd fly under the radar of a lot of monitoring systems.
