Also, its sister HttpWebResponse also does what the OP suggested in the comments to the question; provide generalized access to the response.

comment How can we reduce downtime at the end of an iteration?
If the retrospective only takes 1½ hours ((11am-8am)/2meetings), maybe you should make it more fun. :)

Since when does wildly == within 50%? :)

comment Should Unit Testing be used in Prototypes?
@nicolas, it's not a quote, it's a cornerstone of test-driven development in specific and unit testing in general. Do you have much experience with unit testing?

comment Should Unit Testing be used in Prototypes?
Unit tests are programmatic specifications of exactly what your application should do. It's not likely you would know this in a prototype, right? Can you give a specific example of what sort of prototype you have in mind?

comment Who does test-driven development?
"none of them were willing to pay for a test-first style of development project" - say what? The total time it takes to implement a method in a class, in my experience, is a lot less if you write the "test" first. These days though, you won't find it referred to as test-first development or test-driven development, since that's a rather antequated way of looking at it. You can think of unit-tests in TDD as programmatic descriptions of your code, which are then fulfilled during the "fixing of the test". Surely it's better to have some notion of what you want to do before doing it? :)

comment “Comments are a code smell”
This is what I do. If you think you need comments, I can heartily recommend trying this as a replacement.

But it's about programming, not programmers. :)

comment Programming with ADD/ADHD
@Jørgen If you by "any and all" mean the problems that are clearly listed in the question, then absolutely, I'm confident pair programming (and the specific properties of XP I mentioned) can solve them. :)

comment How far should one take e-mail address validation?
Sounds like the problem with those sites was that users were forced to enter information they really didn't understand. Not all sites require e-mail contact with its users, even if it would make things easier for the site.

comment How far should one take e-mail address validation?
In what way does it "get around" the e-mail confirmation? Both Mailinator and MyTrashMail will accept subsequent mails to the same address. If the user doesn't bother to check them, that's another story.

OP already is a programmer with ADHD. Hating doesn't help.
