People aren't as smart as the average /.er. So the problems starts when other people believe that it is you that have written/said something on the web when you haven't. OK, I don't know if this is the case here with McDonald's and Gawker, but it surely is a problem if people gets their Facebook or other social media-accounts hacked. It can cause much confusion, and today much people have their employer(s) as friends there...

I appreciate your good tip. I didn't really think of it that way before. But now when you are mentioning it, I will go and ask. Somebody would have told me that before if they knew they had a similar course as of what you described, at least in my own world.

It actually looks like yo have a quite good technique for learning. I will really try to use that when I have more programs to actually rewrite.
