in reply to Using strict and dressing for the weather

I always boggled at why some students would wear shorts all year round in a "just-about-as-cold" area of Wisconsin. You were walking across campus for 10-20 minutes to get to class. Why not be comfortable.

I am more comfortable with strict and warnings because it keeps me from having some class of bad things from happening with my code. By butt has been saved many a time by strict and warnings, much like my fingertips and head-with-less-hair-than-before are saved from frostbite by gloves and a hat.

Then again, attire and hairstyle were really not a big concern for me. Comfort was.

    Strangely, with my Scottish heritage, I get wearing shorts in cold weather. Physiologically, as long as the head, trunk, hands and feet are warm, insulation for the rest of the body doesn't matter that much, especially if you're walking somewhere and generating heat.

    Within reason. :)

    For those of Nordic descent, shorts are comfortable down to about 25 degrees. It's only when the snow is on the ground for a few days that jeans are recommended. :-)

    My criteria for good software:
    1. Does it work?
    2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

      25 I can buy. I have been accused of being a poor example for my kids when I am outside shoveling in just a hat and shirt sleeves update: (well, pants too). I am talking near zero (deg F) temps with windchills below that. :-)
