comment Can I use Visual studio for Python and Django development?
Check out Komodo. I know your asking specifically about Visual Studio but i think for what you have stated here it will fit your needs pretty well with the added benefit of being able to use it an windows, linux, and OSX.

comment Conceptually speaking, how would I pull facebook wall posts from 100k users?
Seems like your answer to Question 2 would imply that its better to design for today and not worry about the application being able to scale. I am not saying this is wrong I am just asking if this is what you meant and was hoping you could add some detail to why you think that's the best approach. It's seems counter productive. I may be over simplifying your answer.

comment Programming late at night problem
So true on everything said. I have found out recently (for most of my life i have stayed up late and struggled all day) that you can't control when you fall asleep only when you wake up. Force yourself to get up at a specific time (5am for me) every day and after about a week your body will handle the rest. Stay on the schedule for a while and even when you "need" to stay up late your still going to get up early so your schedule doesn't get trashed.

comment Importance of hobby projects
+1 I am having a hard time with this right now. I have two young daughters (6,11) that require my attention, my day job (50ish hours), and then another 8 - 16 hours on contracted work. For awhile a managed this by doing the 6-5ish, spend time with family until the go to bed around 9ish, and then contracted work until whenever. It worked but I am really getting burnt out. Just haven't decided what to do about it yet.

comment Keys as attributes for ajax calls
No, just the key to some record in the database. I updated the question with a very basic example.

comment Visual web page designer for Django?
Not sure if you have already decided on Django but you might want to also look into turbogears 2. Its a good framework that offers, IMHO, more flexibility.

comment Minimising little coding mistakes
+1 for all. I would only add that a good IDE that you take the time to 100% learn helps a lot also.
