comment Stuff you should have learned in school but didn't pay attention to at the time
@mark: "Cognitive Science", which was my original major, is basically nothing but AI, and largely comprised of philosophy. There are two kinds of philosophy: analytic and continental. All the stupid shit is continental. Analytic is logic, cog. sci, linguistics and shit like that.

comment Is writing comments inside methods not a good practice?
I do a lot of financials programming, and as a result, a lot of my methods are just math equations. Every single one of those needs to be exhaustively commented.

comment Advice for good web server development setup
@tmn: Eclipse at least has PDT (eclipse.org/pdt) which does pretty well for php. I've never been all that happy with the web design tools, but, really that's not the programmers problem ;)

comment Do you actually write 'clean code'?
@stargazer712: I hate php's functions because of the lack of defined namespaces. Inevitably, reading someone elses code, they have one "include" at the top, which itself includes 5 other things, which each include 4 more, and then I have to do a search on the entire code base to find the function definition. Very frustrating.

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 At what point during a project is it unreasonable to leave?
@WernerCD: It's just business. I'd give the company I was working for a chance to match the offer, and if they chose not to do that, then I'd shake their hand and tell them I'd be happy to help bring my replacement up to speed, but that they'd have to pay me if they hired him outside of my two weeks notice.
