@durron597 I asked my boss twice already but haven't followed up to force him to actually produce the damn thing. We're understaffed and every time I leave his office someone is walking in to ask for something else so.. I'll bug him again tomorrow for it but yeah; doubt we'd be able to compete with Amazon. Other than on location; Denver > Seattle
@Snowman Apparently it was migrated from SO to Programmers in '11, and closing it retroactively rejected that migration. Unfortunately, this seems to have auto-deleted the two slightly valuable answers (seemingly pre-dating the migration), leaving two really crappy ones behind. Ugh, is that behaviour buggy.
Use your better judgement. Following (often conflicting) rules religiously just leads to cargo cult coding.
When you're stuck picking between two conflicting approaches there's nothing wrong with just trying one willy nilly. If, after a while, you find the approach was lacking then change it. If not, then it was an easy win.
