comment Passing central objects around or having global instances?
And how can I reasonable handle the passing around of several of my central objects through deeply nested call graphs? (or is this an indication of bad code design?)

comment Is there a benefit in compiling your code as you go along?
I use ReSharper to do this automatically for me.

comment HTML DOM in .NET: following specification vs. following language standards
Maybe provide some Extension Methods (too bad there are no Extension Properties) to mimic the other standard/specification without sacrificing the one?

comment Why is the copying instruction usually named MOV?
Wikipedia says: "The word move for this operation is, strictly speaking, a misnomer: it has little to do with the physical concept of moving an object from A to B, with place A then becoming empty; a MOV instead makes a copy of the state of the object at A and overwrites the old state of B in this process. This is reflected in some other assembly languages by using words like load, store or copy instead of move.".

comment How to lock a script or web application to be used for the licenced user?
ionCube Encoder was hell of a software to me. I had to use it once for a shop system I purchased. Since then I hate it with great passion. My conclusion would be to not make your customers hate you. Personally I've seen way to much bad software being over-protective. We make a good living with a nearly-not-protected software, we sell. "Content is king".

comment Idea of an algorithm to detect a website's navigation structure?
Just for the records: Probably I'll should recurse not in a deep-first manner but rather in a breadth-first manner to get a more balanced navigation structure.

That seems just too simply but quite valid :-) So I'll give it a shot! Thanks for pushing me in the right direction!

@RobertHarvey Thanks! Actually, I do use C# :-)

comment Idea of an algorithm to detect a website's navigation structure?
So basically, you would start at the root page, and simply parse links as you go and treat every link inside a page simply as a child page?

comment Idea of an algorithm to detect a website's navigation structure?
@RobertHarvey In my mind, I cannot come up with a tree but rather with an unstructured web of cross-linking pages. How would I detect which are root pages and which are child pages, etc.?

comment Idea of an algorithm to detect a website's navigation structure?
@RobertHarvey Hopefully not :-) I've successfully developed a web spider. What I'm looking for might be called a "post mortem web spider". I want to detect the structure of what a web spider produces.

comment Absolute statements in IT that are wrong
A co-worker of mine is the only person I met in my whole live (37 years and counting) that actually reads virtually any manual and instruction handbook, and that even before using the tool/gadget/object.
