comment Protecting API Keys
Another really popular method is concatenating all the request parameters together plus the API key and SHAing it. On the other hand, this left Flickr open for a large security hole because they used MD5.

comment Are we queueing and serializing properly?
@DanLyons: the only memory growth is in MSMQ. Nobody really talks about it, but it seems to be because of non-persistent messages which are all memory-mapped. Since we're serializing a lot of data, it does keep a substantial amount of memory allocated. The memory is (eventually) reclaimed as the messages are consumed and MSMQ's internal cleanup runs.

Some people are worth enough money that you need to use a long to represent salary, if it's in USD. Moreso with other currencies. Sigh :(

Your algorithm literally runs for the door at the end. That's so cool.
