comment Is it the standard accepted practice to install software using VBScript?
Dropbox solves this with a custom binary with a buffer area that is filled with the user token when downloaded. It's a bit of work to implement, but a very smooth user experience.

comment Semantic versioning when fixing an important bug
@hohner: Then now is also the time to document the old behaviour as deprecated, so you can remove it in 2.0.0.

comment Translating error messages from an external API?
@kevin: (regex, translation) or (regex, translatable_string)? I would think the latter, so you don't have different regexes per language you translate to?

comment Translating error messages from an external API?
One caveat is that the error messages of the API could improve over time. So maybe now I get the same string "Error" for five different types of errors, and can only map this to "Unspecified error in the API". If they later change this to include more detailed information, how should I structure my adapter so that my application does not hide this info?
