comment Does Serialization preclude the use of Dependency Injection?
@RobertHarvey- OK. Lights are starting to come on. Perhaps I don't understand Serialization properly. I want to instantiate my objects based on a detailed xml configuration file. I thought I could get boost by using the built in Serialization tools. So for my purposes, nothing has been constructed before -- it's just been defined in an xml file. I was hoping that Serialization could automatically instantiate my objects, assuming I set up the xml file properly. Am I mistaken here?

comment Does Serialization preclude the use of Dependency Injection?
@RobertHarvey: I'm feeling a bit dense, but I don't quite get you. What's a "parameterized instructor"? (typo?) Once an object has been de-serialized, I can't construct it again. Are you suggesting I use property/setter injection on a default-consructed object?

comment ASP.Net or WPF(C#)?
It has been a few years now. I'd love to hear what your final decision was, and how it worked out for you.

comment How to manage accidental complexity in software projects
Ahh, but you seem to have been able to write a clean answer to this question on your first try. (And a very cogent one, at that.) Maybe you're just Feynman in disguise.

comment How to manage accidental complexity in software projects
@pdr: As a dev lead, I am considering a requirement for interns and rookies that peer assistance requests are put in writing for precisely that reason. (It sounds a bit draconian, so I probably won't enforce it, but the lesson is a powerful one.)

comment When do you rebuild an application or keep on fixing the existing one
@WarrenP, I agree with Peter: When the code contains hundreds of huge monolithic functions, highly coupled in a tangled spaghetti of undocumented connections (combined with stratified layers of unused boneyard code), creating unit tests can be more demanding than a re-write

comment Is 500 million lines of code even remotely possible?
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner: Go ahead -- count it all. I still think getting all the way to 500M LOC (over 10x the size of Windows 7) seems preposterous. (Not to mention impossible).
