comment Why are there so many CSS properties which are essentially the same?
@ParthianShot - what library authors? Browser creators want to support the latest and greatest (thought their definitions of greatest vary).

comment Can I use cfmessagebox within cfloop
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a specific implementation issue and not software design, as described in our help center.

comment Scrum vs. Agile vs. CMMI
Not really - it isn't useful to suggest something like that off-hand. And frankly? As a sole developer, you probably don't need to adhere to these - personally, I find that going that way as a sole developer is counter productive.

comment Scrum vs. Agile vs. CMMI
Scrum, Agile and CMMI have nothing to do with source control. They are are software development methodologies that are most useful in a team.

comment HTML: displaying images and getting the right image URL
And as unfortunate, this is not on-topic or suitable to any of our sites. I do suggest you read our help center documentation about asking a good technical question - knowing how to ask a good question goes a long way towards getting a good answer.

Sorry, but our terms and conditions mean that I will have to remove your account here and all other Stack Exchange sites you have used. The law in the US (COPPA) requires us to do this. See here for details.

Doesn't matter. It is a question that doesn't meet our quality standards. Though that speaks to homework questions, it applies to such questions as this.

comment In Asp.net, how browser knows a textbox is registered with server side TextChanged event?
Use the developer tools of the browser. Of course you can see the JS, given that the browser needs to see it.

comment Why not apply Interface Segregation Principle to “extreme”
The only rule is - "Is this a useful abstraction"? Does it make things clearer? If it doesn't. Well.

comment confusion on using nodejs within an actual web application or ide
@Ciel - I am afraid I can't help with your update 2, not being a node developer. It would appear that the library you are using (Q.js) has some assumptions and dependencies - perhaps the project page details them, or you can look for these by name.

comment confusion on using nodejs within an actual web application or ide
Regarding your update - in short, you don't invoke node from the command line from your application. You have it already running in its own process (as a server) and have your application communicate with that.

@Smith - start with whatever you are comfortable with. I don't really have strong opinions one way or another.

Everything? If your function takes in an int, do you think you need to test for all possible values of int?
