I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

@DilipSarwate - you're right: it's very hard to pick out, as it's in the middle of a wall of text :)

comment I earn $75K, have $30K in savings, no debt, rent from my parents who are losing their home. Should I buy a home now or save?
your employer doesn't own half your 401(k) - all monies you contribute are yours regardless. Matching funds, if any, may be where you are confused

comment Tax benefit to paying off student loan interest while in school
I've been able to deduct (or whatever the proper tax return term is) my student loan interest, even though my MAGI is over $75k

comment Should I use IRA money to pay down my student loans?
@JamesRyan - not true at all, the URL starts with "money.stackexchange.com". If what you're saying is true, there should be no page or site on the internet that has "IRA" in its title UNLESS it is talking about some branch or faction of the Irish Republican Army. That's not rational :) (or any of the other myriad uses for the acronym)

@farnsy you're assuming she is "desperately poor" - there's nothing in the question to indicate that

comment Should I use IRA money to pay down my student loans?
As @JoeTaxpayer says, I can deduct (or is it a credit?) some-to-all of the student loan interest I pay on both my and my wife's loans every year, and I'm not in the income bracket you mention.
