I'm a programmer from the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida area.

My primary programming interests are ASP.NET/C#, JavaScript, PHP, and some C++ for fun.

comment Should we use progressing job titles for programmers?
@Pierre: I think your use of bold was effective in bringing out the important parts.

comment Does anyone use Ceiling and *not* immediately cast it to an integer?
@Ralph: Yes. 64-bit floating point can only represent all integers exactly up to 2^53, which gives about 16 digits of precision. If you need more than that, you will have to use a decimal type or an arbitrary precision library. Some C and C++ compilers/architectures also support 80-bit "long doubles" with around 19 digits.

comment Does anyone use Ceiling and *not* immediately cast it to an integer?
@Ralph: Because the number has more digits than a floating point number can represent, so you lose some precision.
