I believe the term for this is monkey patching - mostly used to workaround around bugs or limitations with libraries.

comment Simple way to deploy Winform application to website
Have you thought about developing a smart phone app instead? Its just that it struck me as probably a good fit for an app, since you would have full access to the phone's hardware, including front and back facing cameras.

I've heard the term "Bloombug" used to describe a bug which makes the developer some money, or generates sales.

@dan04 totally agree. I've also found porting C code much more error prone than C#, especially on embedded linux.

Good points. 'Closed' environments like MacRuby or Ruby Motion also avoid this problem by tightly controlling exactly which libraries are available to the runtime.

comment Do I need to use an interface when only one class will ever implement it?
Sounds more like lasagne-code or baklava-code to me - code with too many layers. ;-)
