comment Storing web app passwords so that they can be retrieved
@m4tt1mus, as I wrote, a recovery mechanism is not feasible because I can't count on users even having an email address.

comment Storing web app passwords so that they can be retrieved
@salihrkc should I explain why accessing the passwords of the users you manage is a bad idea? Or why storing passwords in freaking clear text is bad?

comment How should I structure a solution for a long term project?
+1. @sooprise, don't waste your time trying to figure out what you don't know yet. Projects do tend to call for changes in their layout as time goes by. Plus, what others think of you is none of your business. If you care so much about structuring your project the way they want, by all means go ask them what you should do. Nothing is irreversible, especially since you'll be under source control and with powerful refactoring tools at your disposal. Forget about the mythical clean history: fuck-ups are going to happen, and that's exactly how you learn.

comment Information about how much time in spent in a function, based on the input of this function
You are sure right that the debugger somehow knows how to retrieve the values, but who knows what it's doing under the covers. I can guess they have some kind of infrastructure that comes into being when we run code in debug mode. One thing is for sure: with managed code you can't do it in a robust way. One might be able to pull it off using the CLR's unmanaged profiling API, though. But I suspect that would be a tough endeavor as well.

comment Using Agile development in a one person team
@davidhaskins: that's correct. Very few know that Agile programming dates back to 1886, thanks to Robert Louis Stevenson. His manuscript "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" is considered to be the seminal work in this field.
