comment What is the best and most optimized way to return a filestream from a .NET WCF SOAP service?
@Rj1705, I think that at the end of the day, if you want the client to have the file, then you need to pass it over the wire. In the absence of a second method of transfer, there's no way to avoid it (or think of it this way--if you do do pass a file stream object, how does the data end up on the client's machine? Magic? No, the file has to go along for the ride if the user is going to read it.)

comment How often should internal applications be deployed?
@MattN. which, as I stated very clearly, is strongly tied to the effort in which it will take to update 30 people. If it's a pain in the a**, don't do it very often. If it is dirt simple, do it whenever it is convenient. The decision is up to you, and making that decision is probably in your job description.

comment Why is polling accepted in web programming?
@kaptan, it seems (in Chrome at least) that you have to turn it on. Also, my crystal ball is telling me that firewalls are going to have a heyday with that feature before everything is said and done.

@dennis, ptyx's response gives some very good reasons (and puts it in terms of your analogy too).

I really like your analogy with 1000 users, some on vacation, some not interested. +1.

comment Should I follow the normal path or fail early?
@Encaitar, that level of granularity is far smaller than what is generally intended when the phrase "fail early" is used.

comment How much time do software developers have to spend outside of work learning new material?
One of my favorite quotes: "Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes." New technologies do not make anything in CS obsolete in the same way that newer telescopes do not make anything in Astronomy obsolete.
