comment How is major software protected?
You're right, and thank you for your opinion, except that I think there are others much more qualified to answer that part than I am - Java and C++ aren't exactly my home turf.

comment How is major software protected?
While I agree it doesn't seem to answer the question posed in the headline, it does (IMHO) answer the question of "what a small software company [...] should do", as posed in the last paragraph. And sometimes, answering the unasked question might be more helpful than correctly answering a question without regard for the context. Anyway, I'm fine if this doesn't get your upvote, but I still think it's a useful (if a little abrasive) answer.

comment How many hours can you be really productive per day? How?
For me, the situation has much improved. I'm still at my old job, but much more productive than before. Why? * My job grew much more interesting and my responsibilities (and freedoms) grew * I eat less * I move more (took up a sport, take bike to work) * My meds kicked in (turns out I have hypothyroidism, which makes you tired). This gradual "kicking in" took months. * I make an effort to start the day early and productively * I try and face obstacles I fear, so they don't become roadblocks. So if you're facing the dilemma I faced, ask yourself what caused it, and make changes in your life.

Since this has been closed, I can't add my own answer (more than two years later) so I'm doing it in a comment.

When, after it's done, it looks easy and self-evident.

comment How to avoid “DO YOU HAZ TEH CODEZ” situations?
This answer again proves that often, the best option is telling the truth in a polite way. The asker actually mentioned being interrupted by his colleague, and this (very good, don't get me wrong!) answer basically just tells him: Go ahead and tell your colleague that the interruptions are bothering you. Sometimes, the obvious needs to be pointed out before we can see it.

comment How faster is an 'if' construct compared to an immediate 'if' statement (IIF) and when should I use it?
@Yannis Rizos While we're on the subject of syntax and naming things, ? : is not the ternary operator, it is a ternary operator. While your language might not implement other ternary operators, this is far from the only one possible. Ternary simply means it takes three arguments. If you want to give it a name, call it the conditional operator.
