comment Customer is “deeply disappointed” in software because of one bug. How to reply?
Helpful? Don't know. That the people in an organisation who interact directly with customers shouldn't be people who are rendered "totally speechless" by customers' comments seems to me to be obvious, but I suppose it could be deemed helpful to point it out.

comment Fixing bugs in other peoples code
"said that we need to communicate before changing each other's code and that I was being disrespectful. " - wow. And you want to keep working with this person?

comment I recently read about unit of work and repository design patterns; working with EF wondering if this is a good design pattern
With EF you can add master and child records in the same unit of work. Also, " I don't like using a transaction because it feels messy for some reason I can't articulate" - you probably want to work on that

"I am always totally speechless when they start this way." - sounds like you shouldn't be dealing directly with customers then.

comment What's the name of this category of variables (NEW, OLD, etc) in triggers?
MS SQL Server calls inserted and deleted "special tables", and doesn't have a particular-to-triggers keyword for the current user. "Contextual keyword"? "Virtual table"?

comment n:m as the only way to store notifications?
What do you mean by 'overhead'? You are storing a fact consisting of two ids as two ids - where's the overhead?

comment An algorithm for finding subset matching criteria?
see eg this, this, this. So if it's a single statement that just needs to be supplied a Recipe.ID, it could probably be made to work against the whole of Recipe at once; but if it's some CURSOR-based or other looping code, it would need another loop around it (ugh)

comment An algorithm for finding subset matching criteria?
Keeping it at a conceptual level, if your SQL query is sufficiently "set-based", you should be able to apply it to the whole Recipe table at once.

comment Why are floats called “real numbers” in some languages?
Calling them rational would lead to the expectation that exact rational arithmetic could be performed.

comment As an API-user, would you tolerate BestPractice Exceptions?
If you make 1/1/1 not work, the first wiseguy to hit that fence will use 2/1/1 instead. Or 1/2/3. Or 1/1/1900. Or whatever they need to to fix "the error that's stopping their program working". You've heard that old saying about making things idiot-proof, right?

comment Unique ID algorithm
"Each one has value 0 or 1" and "with many values, that will never be used" are in contradiction - if each value can be 0 or 1, then there are 2^15 routes...

comment Is there a standard class name suffix for talking to remote services?
@gnat The criterion for acceptance would obviously be the answer being correct: as in, when the offered term is looked up in a standard reference, the definition given is the concept in the question.

comment Is there a standard class name suffix for talking to remote services?
@gnat this question appears to be on topic according to the current consensus - it is asking for the standard term of art for a well-described concept
