    • 17 Comments
    Today I was looking through an internal C# user group list. One of the messages was about "x+=x++;" and what should be the right behavior. I thought this is more generally interesting, so I decided to blog it. But first, DO NOT WRITE THAT CODE!!! Ok,...

    Someone asked me for the spreadsheet I used for the calculations in my previous posts. Here you have it. The data doesn't reflect my current situation. Feel free to use it with your own numbers (and tell me of any bug).

    I'm buying a house...

    • 1 Comments
    I think I've been misinterpreted in my previous posts. I'm not suggesting that renting is better than owning. You have to run your numbers and make your own choice. There are many assumptions to consider (financial and not). The not financial ones often...
