Yes, now your algorithms can change and Hid/HidComms don't need to be changed.

comment Separation of concerns between objects
Encoding/decoding tents to be based upon an algorithm. The algorithm should have it's own class, and Hid uses that class so it's not tightly coupled to the algorithm. MD5 as an example would be in a MD5 class.

comment Good way to handle the notification counter like Facebook does
@Mik378 that's more of a database issue then technique. I would use NOW() as in a SQL expression and use transactions to ensure things are executed in the correct order. In MySQL you can perform a SELECT and UPDATE as one transaction. I forget the syntax, but there are ways to ensure this is done safely.

@eigensheep is it a desktop app, mobile app, web app or service. Those all have very different needs.

comment Why isn't testing a language a supported feature at the syntax level?
Can't a language have testing grammar built-in and also support libraries that offer different philosophies. For example; couldn't C# have built-in ways to test internal classes or syntax for mocking objects.

comment Why isn't testing a language a supported feature at the syntax level?
If I give a language feature example for unit testing, then people will argue my example isn't very good. My question is why hasn't this been added to the language given that unit testing existed long before C# and Java.

comment Is there a correlation between the scale of the project and the strictness of the language?
Bugs and security holes are introduced by programmers and not by languages, and for the record I've contributed a number of security fixes to open source projects. How many closed projects have I helped??? zero!
