"You want your compiler and your development environment to be as strict as possible; you want it to literally generate random return values for GlobalSize so that you don't get into the habit of counting on something that won't be there everywhere; you want to use French international settings on Chinese Windows 2000 with an absurd color scheme, DVORAK keyboard, trackball, 640x480 VGA mode, and huge ugly fonts on your development system so that you remember to bake in the code that adjusts for all these things."
