You really have all that experience and need all that commenting? I think you need to check your experience at the door. Hell, I've got "two years real world experience outside school", and no one comments their code where I work, including me. I would hardly call them unprofessional or bad programmers, even if occasional things do pop up that seem, and may be, retarded, because it's almost always a big waste of time. After looking at code like that for over two years, across several projects in several languages, I can say it's not as hard to read uncommented code as you make it out to be. In fact, I often skip reading comments for the sheer fact that they're usually incorrect because they're either not maintained as the code is updated or were always wrong.
Except for some extremely obscure pieces of code, generally revolving around optimizations, architecture-specific workarounds, compiler-bug workarounds, etc., have I ever found comments to be useful outside of documenting an API. In point of fact, there will never be a comment stating more correctly what the code is doing than the code itself.
As one caveat, I've seen good use of comments in ASM. However, with the ability to use more advanced assembler features in GCC or LLVM these days, you can put pretty sophisticated names on your code-flow elements and not require nearly as many comments as in the past. And with being able to inline ASM into code for those cases you need it, you can even use sophisticated meta-names for your registers that are obvious to the reader. Also, being the fact that the only person that work on an optimized piece of code would be someone that already knows that architecture's ASM or can learn what they need, you can rest assured that they'll have all the tools necessary to read and modify your code.
Since you're not a total moron, presumably you can tell me whether Google has just accept that they can - and therefore should - remove links to anything libellous, regardless of whether the subject has complained to them or not?
Just so you stop making things up that are completely untrue, I want to inform you about an image like this: it is parody and not libel. Parodies are a well-established form of protected first amendment speech. If you think Michelle Obama really is a monkey because of something like this (which would be libel), you really are stupid. Fortunately, the courts are not.
The GP can also purchase the Nokia N900 (available tomorrow in flagship stores; available online for preorder today). It follows the European model you mention and is an awesome phone. I don't know if the Milestone has tethering, but the N900 does and doesn't tell your cell provider that you're tethering. The N900's 3G will only work on T-Mobile towers, unless you're living in an area where AT&T has some 2100 MHz towers. The N900's EDGE connection will work on both T-Mobile and AT&T though.
Only thing the N900 lacks, software-wise, is Android. In it's place it has Maemo, which looks amazing, but let's face it, we also want Android. I can't wait for someone to port it; maybe I'll look into trying it. The other thing I wish Nokia had done better with the hardware are the frequencies it can handle. I would absolutely love a phone I could setup to work on any of the US carriers with full bandwidth, but I'm willing to accept T-Mobile over AT&T any day right now.
