comment Azure ServiceBus Queue: Consumer Application
Yes, definitely! I naturally assumed that when you talked about "a second project" you meant an Azure worker role, not another Web project/Azure web role. My bad for making this assumption, I should have been clearer

comment Code review lags behind the Deliver/Test Cycle
I like all the answers, but let me add a point I consider important. You are asking if you are misinterpreting Agile but you don't say which methodology. Are you following Scrum? Most important: do you have a definition of "Done"? I'm asking because I find it very .. strange that you are considering something "delivered" before having finished actually working on it. Sounds like code review is something "extra" you do just because.

comment Bridging the gap between abstract machines and computer achitectures?
As others pointed out, there are several mathematical models for "computers": some closer to languages (partial recursive functions, lambda calculus), some closer to hardware. If you want, you should look at RAM machines (Wikipedia link): they are closer to real hardware than Turing machines.

comment How has an increase in the complexity of systems affected successive generations of programmers?
My point is: just because it's "lower level" it does not mean it is slower, or more wasteful.. libraries benefit from years of experience of other programmers, people that often is more clever then me or knows better. And on modern architectures, gain performance at low level (with multiple level cache, alignment, branch prediction,..) is much harder than it used to be. I'd say: know it (you always need to know how it works), but leave it to the experts.

comment How has an increase in the complexity of systems affected successive generations of programmers?
@Benjol you are right. And Eric, let me add that not only the compiler, but also the basic libraries got better and better. I remember this old "race" between Raymond Chen and Rico Mariani, in which they compare performances and optimization between native and managed code. Raymond "won" in the end, but.. he is Raymond! :) And look at the effort!
