comment Keyboard API with Visual Basic
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about code and implementation but does not meet the quality standards for StackOverflow migration.

comment How do I convince management to do a reference implementation for a new format?
I improved your question by removing the polling aspects of it and focused on the core of the question. Let me know if I captured the spirit of what you are asking.

comment Is Microsoft's Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop no longer free? Or, why does it say product has expired?
I decided to reopen this question to give it another chance since Too Localized is no longer a valid close reason. It still may be put on hold for other reasons however. If the community or another moderator disagrees with my decision then please put on hold.

comment Knowing the range of variable types needed
@JMD The 32 bit integer is so common that Java I believe makes this a standard size for all int and smaller types. Even declaring a byte variable, the JVM will still allocate 32 bits of the heap while only utilizing the first 8 bits. The reason for this is performance I would imagine.

comment Should you ever use private on fields and methods in C#?
@gnat I feel this is deserving a meta discussion. I will be posting a meta question shortly to get community feedback on how we should approach this going forward.

comment Should you ever use private on fields and methods in C#?
@gnat It is a stretch to ask why one would explicitly declare the private keyword in their code is a question about coding style. This question is far more specific than that. I feel that while a canonical answer might cover a different question, a more specific question can sometimes deserve its own answer.

@RobertGrant Well as free as the memory consumed by keeping a pointer to a memory address. </pedantic>

comment Desktop to Web - How to deal with user-interactive workflows
@OlivierH Rewriting complex software is well... a complex undertaking. If you detail out the high level tasks and provide high level estimates you might be able to use that as leverage to convince your boss to hire more people.

comment Can a version of Python's shelve module that knows when its entries have been modified be written in any programming language?
I have a feeling that this question can have an answer more than a list. I unfortunately don't understand python well enough to find a way to improve this. If somebody can find a good way to edit this question then please do.

@DocBrown Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I didn't read the question carefully enough. I reopened.

comment Who should have full visibility of all (non-data) requirements information?
How does a programmer know what to program without full visibility of requirements? I don't understand the premise of your question. Can you please clarify what you mean? Are you asking if a Program Manager is a good idea to interpret business requests and decide what features should go into the software?
