I'm a software developer working on a social-networking site. I work mainly in J2EE, SQL, HTML, JavaScript and CSS. My free time is spent raising a daughter and a son and indoctrinating them in the cult of Lego.

comment probleme in the file upload in PHP 5.4
1. This is the wrong place to ask code questions. 2. You already asked this exact question 2s ago. 3. Your question doesn't even say what your problem is. 4. Your code is vulnerable to SQL injection. Read about how to bind data to parameters in PHP/MySQL.

comment How to copyright ideas?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is about copyrights and not about writing.

There are many kinds of documentation used in software development. What kind are you writing? Each kind has a different purpose, audience, etc.

If you've got a university library nearby you might also have university students who would be willing to consult.

comment Looking for software that can create annotation/outline layers
I've posted an answer, but I think more information about how you expect to use this software would better help you find a solution. Also I'm not sure this question is on-topic for this site.

Dia might work (It's been a while since I tried it) but I'm not sure Gimp is at all suitable for what the OP needs.

comment What is the purpose of version control?
Also I strongly disagree with your notion that there is no advantage whatsoever to version control. Have you never looked back at a previous draft? Do you ever keep backups of old versions of your work? If so, then you are using rudimentary version control. Welcome to the club. When you're ready to do more, there are tools to help you do it.

comment What is the purpose of version control?
One other useful feature in version control is the ability to add comments to check-ins. It's very handy if your memory is imperfect or you collaborate with multiple authors to know why a particular section of a work was updated.

comment What is the purpose of version control?
Fiction books might not be written using branches, but there's no reason to dismiss branches for other kinds of books. Technical manuals for software are often stored with the version they address; branches to the software might require updates to the manual for that branch, and merging those changes back to the main trunk later. Essentially, any work that you expect will ever have more than one version released should have version control. It's not just about getting the first edition done, but also the subsequent ones.
