comment 'HMAC style' design example for a shared secret
@CodesInChaos it wasn't specified, but regardless of how long it was, the 'naked' SHA1 hash is pretty much brute-forceable anyway right?

comment 'HMAC style' design example for a shared secret
Correct, which is why I used the term "HMAC style" for want of a better phrase 'HMAC-esque'? I was given this code to use by a third party, but I'm trying to figure out why anyone would use this over 'System.Security.Cryptography.HMACSHA256(key)'. It seemed insecure, and I wondered what other opinions there were.

comment What is a good design pattern / lib for iOS 5 to synchronize with a web service?
@KyleHodgson We are reviewing both ServiceStack and MVC4 Web API for the backend. iOS sync is still our primary issue. I agree though, WCF config isn't fun.

comment What are the definitive guidelines for custom Error Handling in ASP.NET MVC 3?
@AnnaLear I concur with Shawn. I only found this page via Google. Note that nearly all of the answers below contain links BACK to Stack Overflow. To me that speaks volumes, in that it should have been left there in the first place.
