comment How can one demonstrate client site website content after the sites have been updated?
@DocBrown, of course, he can get recommendations for tools on softwarerecs.stackexchange.com but (s)he might also want to consider the legality of what (s)he is doing. Memor-X do you have permission to show those sites to third parties?

comment How to find hard to misspell given names?
I would also check the chosen name to find out if it is rude or offensive in any of those languages. It will be tough, though, to check for slang (or names like Richard, being abbreviated to Dick, which might lead to teasing when young), or which might have connotations that you don't know (i.e calling a child Adolf then moving to Germany)

comment Is it possible to write an operating system in C?
"There is one big problem with writing a kernel purely in a high level language: No high level language in existence allows you access to all the CPU instructions that an OS has to use." 1) can you back that claim up? 2) in any case, it would the compiler, not the high level language which decides what Instructions are used, so blame it on a compiler, not a language

comment Enforce uniqueness of personal contact records in a system or not?
@ toniedzwiedz "Why does it matter for users to be unique?" I don't know, but the OP wants it. If he defines a unique key then an INSERT with the same key will fail and can be detected. Or, as I suggested, he can SELECT that data first and flag it at application level if it exists.

comment Enforce uniqueness of personal contact records in a system or not?
Yup, I thought so - which is why I said "such as ..". Maybe social security number would be better ..

comment Enforce uniqueness of personal contact records in a system or not?
Can you make some fields unique - such as the phone number, if you are sure that no two customers will share the same 'phone number? Otherwise, SELECT before INSERT and, if a matching record already exists, ask the user who is inserting it what to do

comment Putting a password in a REST API call
True, he didn't in the question. But his comment to Netch's answer says "Guess I'll have to use POST after all", so we can assume that he originally intended/asked about GET. Which, as Esben points out is A Bad Thing. GET should read only.

comment Moving from a traditional waterfall methodology to an agile one
or, apparently, understanding it. If they did, they would be explaining what they wanted. And, IMO, the OP should be asking them, not us. If they can't explain, then they are just chasing buzzwords, which rarely has a happy ending. Management-buzzword-smell is usually a timely reminder to make sure that your CV is up to date (and does not include that particular buzzword, as you are unlikely to be able to answer questions about it convincingly at subsequent interviews).

Of course it will be difficult, but politics are politics and it is currently the only way forward.
