comment Demonstrate bad code to client?
@sleske: Agreed. I made the assumption that the job had been accepted: "I have a new client..." Also, I do say "walk away" is an option.

comment Demonstrate bad code to client?
@sleske: agreed that it will be a lot of work, but hopefully also helps you if the Worst Possible Case happens and there is a security breach. At the very least, you need something that says that you see security risks and that you don't want to be held accountable for those pre-existing risks.

comment Should a stack trace be in the error message presented to the user?
what are some of "the advantages of knowing inmediatly what went wrong", and why can't they be retrieved from a log file? It would seem that with an Intranet, you could access a log file even more easily than from a client site.

comment How big does my project need to be for me to unit test it?
Having done it both ways, I can tell you its so much easier to write the tests as you are going along (i.e. while the project is small) than to go back and write unit tests later when you feel the project has met some arbitrary "we should write tests now" condition.

comment Is there something wrong with how we're doing version control?
Won't the fixes to 2.0 need to get into the 3.0 code base eventually anyway? So, they will need to do a merge at some point - might as well use the TFS tool to do so, which it is designed to do.

comment Is it worth making a commit solely to resolve non-critical typos?
Yes - of all the correct answers, I like this one best for mentioning that it depends on the "when."
