in thread Avoiding silly programming mistakes
Read the documentation carefully, pay attention, sleep well, take pauses and don't drink. Those may help in preventing making mistakes, but does not guarantee they won't happen. I'm a bit far from 22 years of experience in programming and still make silly mistakes. Good practices like the ones pointed by GrandFather will help spotting errors faster.
In your comments I don't see you helping missingthepoint either not making mistakes nor figuring them out.
