comment Why are strings so slow?
@seh, unfortunately, I actually can't answer that. The few times I've actually asked people what strings are slower than, they just kind of shrug and say "they're just slow." Besides, if I had more specific information, this would be a question for SO, not Programmers; it's already kinda borderline.

comment Getting humiliated by your senior programmer
I'm tempted to downvote for "Engineers aren't particularly known for their social skills," but +1 because this is the only answer that hasn't assumed that the senior dev was in the wrong.

comment Getting humiliated by your senior programmer
I also think this is too much of a blanket statement, but not for the same reason as Jim. I've known people who would feel humiliated in this situation even if the senior dev was perfectly reasonable; it kind of depends on how you define "humiliated."

comment int* i; or int *i; or int * i;

comment If you could only have one programming related book on your bookshelf what would it be and why?
This is the required textbook for my class this term. I'm heartened that it's on the list here, and that it's so highly rated on the original SO question!

comment What techniques are used in solving code golf problems?
In other words, is there a "right way" to approach solving a code golf challenge? In other other words, what steps can you take to make sure you have the shortest possible code?
