comment Is there a faster way to work out this logic?
As long as you know in advance how many integers you'll be dealing with, why not use a plain array instead of an ArrayList?

comment Why isn't rich code formatting more common?
@Newtopian: When I use NetBeans, I don't have to tell it each time I type something what color it should display it in. It determines, based on the (customizable) rules, what colors things should be displayed in. The formatting wouldn't have to be custom-done as can be done with Word.

comment How do you share your craft with non programmers?
It would be a hurting world where you couldn't program your computer to make programming easier ("visually searching . . . for an errant comma").

comment Python: What is the point of using “import”?
-1: You can have packages in a language without requiring include statements. Python could have been designed so that you never have to use import statements; libraries could just be loaded when an identifier in another package is used for the first time (though that might be a little less efficient overall).

comment Python: What is the point of using “import”?
-1: I don't know Python well, but my understanding is that you have to import a package to use anything in it in Python. In Java, you don't technically ever have to use import statements; you could just write out the full, qualified names of classes, etc. in other packages.

comment The 10 minutes technical interview
When you ask about the "tenets" of OOP, do you mean to suggest that that OOP is a religion?
