Are there dedicated QA resources assigned to the project?

comment How do I avoid feature creep on a solo project?
Are you a sole developer on this project? Large team projects find it indispensable to have milestones to make delivery schedules manageable, but those of us who fly solo can also benefit from methodologies like feature-driven development.

Here is a blog by Guido van Rossum as to why he doesn't want tail-recursion optimization in Python (supporting the notion that different languages take distinct tactical approaches).

comment SQL Server 2000 vs 2008 Express?
A possible duplicate on StackOverflow: Limitations of SQL Server Express. Note that the size limit in SQL Server Express 2008 is up to 10Gb. However performance is constrained by single CPU threading and 1Gb RAM working memory.

comment Smalltalk Beginner needs help
Smalltalk has the "message passing" paradigm for OOP, which is not used in the Java/C++ language family. In this respect Objective-C is somewhat closer in spirit to Smalltalk.

comment Why does XMLHttpRequest not seem to follow a naming convention?
Note that while XML and URL are commonly all-caps, references to lowercase http are ubiquitous in HTML. So XMLHttpRequest may be viewed as camel casing of the combined identifiers.

comment God Files versus Ravioli Code
I agree with this sentiment. The hallmark of a good design is that when bugs need fixing or features need to be added, it is pretty obvious where to make changes, and ideally these changes are well localized and easily tested. "Spaghetti code" is of course frowned upon for failing these expectations.
