In other words, get off my lawn?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Ahh, ghetto programmers, gotta love 'em.
Engrossing story! Thanks for the details, sounds like a fascinatingly different place.

The built-in functionality of Visual Studio is pathetic when compared to that of Eclipse.
Corporate policies can - or are you suggesting ingore your company's policy?
If a company has issues with you "breaking corporate policy" because you install Firefox on your machine, then that's one more reason to quit.
Gramer != Speling
I can write unmaintainable shitty Java code. The language doesn't prevent me from being a complete idiot.
Want to watch?
Yeah, I love seeing awful code, please post a sample. The worse it is, the better it is.
C/C++ is for the pros, for hobbyist it is probably better to stick with Visual Basic, C#, Java, Ruby, Perl, Python, PHP, Automator etc.
LOL, I guess everyone who programs web apps and services for a living is a hobbyist.
PHP is pseudo-OO. It's a little bit of everything, all thrown into one messy pot. It's OK for quick and dirty apps, but I'd take Java over PHP any day.
At this point, assembler is the best solution for very few things. Programmers generally output a pretty constant amount of code, regardless of the language they're using. So using something like Java or C# or C++ or Ruby or Python, where 1 line of code equals dozens of assembler instructions, is insanely more productive.
Only in a software-hardware interface, or when speed absolutely has to be maximized, is assembler the best choice.
Wow. Do you really know what people use computers for nowadays? They use them for all sorts of things. Like the internet! I'd love to see you write the code for Slashdot in assembler, then run that on your "custom arrangment of microprocessors".
Man, I just reread this post, and it blows my mind again. I guess when I'm writing web services that deal with insurance policies and quotes, I shouldn't think about them as Policy and Quote objects. I should instead think of them as:
mov InitAmt, ax
mov bx, 12
mov ax, NewAmt
mov TotAmt, ax
mov bx, NewAmt
add TotAmt, bx
For reals though.
