comment How was programming done 20 years ago?
We also had USENET, you can see archives of comp.lang.c and others on Google Groups, dating back to the early/mid 80s.

comment Decompilers - Myth or Fact?
ILSpy (a project set up after Redgate announced that they will be charging for Reflector) does a really good job of intepreting obfuscated code.

comment Decompilers - Myth or Fact?
@Simon the program would need to remain decrypted in memory for it to run - if you encrypt the .data portion of the image in memory you effectively corrupt the machine code that will be processed.

Depends what job you're applying for - SharePoint 2010 still uses ASP.NET 3.5.

comment Putting books read in resume
I'm agreeing with Martin on this one. Unless the candidate reviews books and publishes his reviews on his blog or whereever, then I don't see much depth to a book listing on a CV (Woo, British!).

comment Versioning millions of files with distributed SCM
Gotcha, so the RDBMSs are basically data warehouses and the day to day transactions are XML files. I think with enough frontends (5?) and a clustered SQL backend (3 or 4 nodes?) then SharePoint could handle this.

Is there a reason then this is stored in XML files? Surely a transactional RDBMS would be more favourable?
