* If someone asks "How can I do XYZ?", don't answer just to say "Don't do XYZ." It's more polite to post "Here's how to do XYZ. But, consider this before you do it..." You don't always know why someone wants to do XYZ.

* I do not like Resharper. I'm happy that you like it. I have tried it, and I don't like it. Now go away.

* I'm thinking of taking up F# purely so that I won't have to deal with programmers who don't understand why side effects are usually bad.

comment What are the differences between Springpad and Evernote, and how can I choose?
Currently, on Evernote for Windows Phone, it's possible to share notes on a social network, and to set a reminder date/time for a note. (I have Evernote Premium, so I'm not sure whether the same features are available without it.)

comment Alternatives for Google Reader (with Android synchronizing)
Instead of the above petition, use this one, which has more text and more signatures. (Nearly 100,000 at the moment!)

@phwd, then I guess the "earlier" text below needs to be corrected.

@phwd, this question isn't a duplicate. The other one is.

comment How do I ensure that what I post on Facebook stays private?
This is not a good answer to the question. For example: I might post something on Facebook about going away on vacation. I'm not concerned about my Facebook friends knowing this. There'd be no reason for them to trumpet it around. But it would be crazy to post it to the entire world, as my house would probably get burglarized while I was gone. Most information on Facebook isn't interesting enough that people will spread it to the entire world. The question is how I can keep from spreading it to the entire world when I post.

comment How does Google's new two-factor authentication work with IMAP, POP, etc.?
Note that the instructions are misleading. They say you'll never have to enter the application-specific password again. In practice I've found that for Google Browser sync, I'm having to enter it again every 30 days.

comment Mute a Google+ circle
This also applies to the bizarre publicly-viewable stuff from people you don't know, which you never asked for, but which Google+ shows you anyway. There's a "What's Hot" section under your circles, and you can slide it all the way to the left to shut them up for good. Hopefully.
