in thread Help with my Coding Style - another chance to critique

No code is self-explantaory! Code only says "how." Good code can also explain "what." It is generally impossible for code, no matter how good, to properly document "why." The "why" of a program is crucial to maintainability, which is a critical property of good programs. A good program that is hard for others to maintain isn't really very good given time.
