comment Is there some sort of systematic strategy for designing and implementing GUIs?
Can't you create the dynamic form with all possible buttons with a GUI editor, and just make things you don't need dynamically invisible? Sounds like much less work.

comment If immutable objects are good, why do people keep creating mutable objects?
@gnat Which of the previous answers makes the point that most mainstream languages do not decently support immutability? I think that point simply has not been made (I checked), but this is IMHO a quite important obstacle.

comment Aging eyes, screen size and resolution
To set the computer to a lower resolution does reduce the quality of the image since sometimes a pixel is mapped to one and sometimes to two screen pixels. So it is probably a better idea to change the font sizes and display scaling technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ff629368.aspx . Note however that some badly written programs have trouble with that.

comment What is a sensible prime for hashcode calculation?
@corsiKa As I said, for current desktop machines this doesn't seem to be an optimization anymore - the time is the same. Even worse: on my machine multiplying with 31 was a little slower - maybe the JVM tried to "optimize" it by calculating x << 5 - x, and this is actually slower than using the hardware multiplier.

comment Are ceramic heaters more efficient than convection heaters?
Arguably the ceramic heater is less efficient, since it warms up a section of the wall, which increases losses.

comment After git-svn migration: migrate unmigrated branch later?
Would that also create proper information what was already merged into the (already migrated) trunk?
