comment How long can it take for a screen to appear before it's considered a performance issue?
Never leave a user wondering if they just broke the software, even a small reminder window that pops up immediately with a predicted time to completion stops end-user anxiety and leaves them feeling in control.

comment Monitor screen size and programming ease
I work really well with two, medium resolution monitors. I use one for the running app (set horizontal) and the 2nd for the dev environment which I set vertical. Personal preference, really.

comment New Team Lead - How to deal with a resentful former peer
Keep in mind that as lead, and therefore a company man, HR is on your side now. I agree with all comments that say to document everything but add for all team members so you can act impartially from the data gathered. And by "document" I mean tracking short, measurable goals you set out for everyone on the team combined with check-in rates and QA bug returns, etc...
