comment Git commit messages with nvie branching model
Nice, this blog post seems identical to what you describe. Do you ever find that you miss the squashed and deleted commits?

comment Completion time on a company where the supervisors don't know programming
@Phil - Do people who bluff in poker "sacrifice their integrity"? No, it's the rules of the game. You can call a poker player a "liar", but many would disagree with your use of the word. Bureaucracy has it's own rules, and padding estimate is part of the game. You can call it "lying", but many would disagree with your use of the word.

comment Completion time on a company where the supervisors don't know programming
@MarkJ - "Salesmen and supervisors are natural negotiators, developers aren't." So, we should just roll over, allow them to pad their requirements, time estimates, and deliverables—i.e., lie—while we play a completely different game (i.e. not lying)? If anything, this answer simply reinforces that programmers need to know not only how to program, but also how to play bureaucratic games just as well as any other member of the company. Anything else and you're just playing a different game.

comment How to perform code review of visual code?
@tehnyit - both, if possible. I don't really know where to start, or even if I should bother starting.

comment How do you maintain focus when a particular aspect of programming takes 10+ seconds to complete?
I'll also add, use the restroom :) Oftentimes, when I first stand up after a long coding session, I find I really need to use the plumbing, as they say, as they say. Use these breaks to take care of yourself.
