  1. Start writing the test harness before you start writing the code you want to test... it can often clarify just what it is you need to do!
  2. From time to time stop and think. It's not a luxury!
  3. Don't be afraid to experiment with different ways to do things, not only might you learn something new; but you might also understand occasionally why your original code was better
  4. Take time to clean your code up regularly... in particular make an effort to be consistent even if it means going back and reviewing existing code. Be critical.
  5. Sometimes you need to work at being lazy. Learn how to use your toolset effectively. Add your own tools if you need them.

    [LanX]: yes, test passed :)
    [sierpinski]: woo hoo! you can go home for the day now
    [Eily]: does this mean you'll give up the random prefix solution LanX?
    [LanX]: yep, sorry ;(
    [Eily]: such a fine and clever workaround though...
    [LanX]: well even my random fingers have memory ...
