comment What's the origin of the idiom “cut corners”?
@BraddSzonye: Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. I do disagree with your attitude, though: to me, it seems like a relatively straightforward connection. I didn't read the book in question, so I don't know that the quoted web page is incorrect -- just that I didn't find the precise quotation.

comment What does the abbreviation “con” mean in the following context?
I think Adam is correct (+1). There is no other (sensible) interpretation. I think the profile is being facetious: my interpretation is that he is saying he has C++ skills for gaming industry, but he does not consider these to be an asset. Perhaps he didn't like a previous position that used those skills; the gaming industry is known to be pretty full-on as a work environment.

comment Is there a word for numbers between 10 and 99?
I have certainly heard "double digit" here in the US, but when I think about it too much, it sounds like "two fingered" :-)
