@athomsfere you can easily style 2012 to look like 2010, and still benefit from current features.. :)

comment Fields vs method arguments
Arguments that are used only as a local variable (not global for the lifetime of the object) should only be in scope as long as it makes sense... I find it very irritating when devs store non-instance state as instance state because it's convenient... Just my opinion though. Makes it hard to see how the execution flow actually is.

comment Utility Classes in MVC - ASP.NET
Well, a proper utility function in my mind is a very small function with a very defined scope and no external dependencies... Such as a function to remove whitespace, or trim a string, or get the nth element of a collection...

comment Utility Classes in MVC - ASP.NET
I would personally consider email sending a service, abstracted by say the interface IUserNotificationSender or so.. with proper error handling, smtp config etc that doesn't really fit in a utility function...

comment When there is no API
You might do better by analysing their http interface, and communicating directly through that.. without an established, stable api it will always be somewhat of a hack...

comment Why was strict parsing not chosen for HTML?
Funny note: you say that if a browser is unable to parse a invalid site, it will lose market share. But just look at ie: however bad it is, it doesn't lose market share. It just forces poor developers to write dirty hacks in using old APIs... And don't get me started on it's versioning scheme...

comment Designing models for a generic service layer
@WyattBarnett I agree completely. But that is a concern when writing the service - the client is pretty much forced to use their methods, right? My answer is strictly from the perspective of the client... Should I make that clearer in the answer?

comment Designing models for a generic service layer
@WyattBarnett How do you figure? I agree it's not a minor implementation detail - with many remote calls it will take longer time to return a result, but there is no way to escape that anyway. If you need the calling method to return immediately, it is possible to opt for an asynchronous interface instead, is that what you are referring to? What I am getting at is that if the remote call layout makes or breaks the application, I'm not sure what the interface on the client side could do to fix that?
