See you all on the flip side! Going to bed now, and when I wake back up, I’m expecting the new forums to be live! :chuckle:

Do enjoy! Sadly it’s been raining here for the last 24 hours straight – that’s summer in northern Europe for you ;)

I really appreciate that ‘Not supported’ is the default. Given the level of inactive still available items, that is the only sane choice.

No sunscreen? You’re all dead….

Surely sunscreen preceded mankind by several centuries – how else would our ancestors have been able to survive ;)

You’re stranded. Anything that will run out within a couple weeks is a waste of a ‘1 of 4’.

Island choice, this is super easy.

This is the only correct answer :P

I’d say only a 10-20% of professional programmers write code that’s well thought, easy to read and practical. Most of the code written might be pretty solid and stable, but it usually is not very easy to change or update without quite drastic refactoring and cleaning.

This. If you want to take this to an extreme, try reviewing code by undergraduate students ;-). Readability counts. This is why it’s extremely important to be comfortable with a language and an environment (but also: the product) to the point where you don’t just ‘fix things’, but you ‘write down ideas’. It seems like the majority of time writing code should not be spend actually writing code. Writing code is hard.
