“If you find yourself adding comments to your code: //REMOVE THIS CODE LATER you have lost. Just kill the code now. You wont remember why you added that line in the first place so just don’t do it. kill -9 that cruft now. So what if you feel like your code is precious and needs to be kept intact like it’s the Magna Carta? Just use your version control system. The code will always be there to recover like the the Ark of the Covenant. If you don’t have a version control system get one. There is NO reason not to.”
