comment Where is the class itself stored at runtime to be used as a reference
The OP may be used to prototype-based languages like JavaScript, where there is a master template that new objects are cloned from. Consider this in answers.

comment Is it true that calling _exit() instead of exit() won't prevent static destructors from being called?
@Frank Answers have no order, they're shuffled around to let good ones bubble up.

comment How can I handle errors in functions
Unless it's the name of a product, you should probably spell 'business' right.

comment Would it be possible to transfer an HTML file using a protocol different from HTTP?
Interestingly enough and very tangentially, if there is enough information in the client-initiated handshake to identify the kind of connection, you can have multiple services on a single port by having a program that disambiguates and forwards the connection to the right kind of protocol handler. ZNC uses this to have the WebAdmin UI and the IRC bouncer on the same user-defined port.

comment Readme.txt vs. README.txt
I've always thought that all-uppercase was a form of emphasis, much like how you have the sections of uppercase in legalese.

comment Are Windows 10 app services only useful in enterprise environments?
If not required to launch the app at all, it sounds like a great way to have optional added value from having multiple co-operating apps deployed on a system. Examples would be things like a game letting the user select from music the user owns could be enhanced by using app services from popular media streaming services if they have the app deployed, or using a limited interface to a social media app to do social integration in an interactive application.

comment Git repo with lots of medium-sized images?
@toniedzwiedz If you interpret the question as an X-Y problem, then suggesting solutions outside of the question box may make sense.

comment C++ serialization design review
@Snowman I did not notice that comment as I observed the problem in the actual code. The problem with "example code" is that neophytes will copy, paste, and mislearn from it. It should not be.

comment C++ serialization design review
For the love of sanity, don't using namespace std in interface code, and preferably don't do it in implementation code either. There's so many names in the standard namespace that may conflict with your names, either resulting in shadowing, accidental overloads or your code performing illegal specialization or otherwise causing ODR violations. Use type aliases or explicit qualification.
