comment Feasible to keep work to a minimum for distribution purposes?
I want to cut a piece of the image out based on some sort algorithm that'll detect a significant-enough change in colour etc. Similar code to making a white background image into a transparent-background image. I don't doubt there are libraries in place for this already, but I also don't want to underestimate how much processing they will require. So, to answer your question in a nutshell, a LOT.

I didn't downvote eebbesen, and I agree with most of what you said - I think you may have been downvoted because it doesn't really address the question asked in the OP.

comment Do Scrum sprints mean to work at the fastest pace possible?
"... you don't go home when the working hours are over, you go home when the job is done, no matter how much it takes...". Run like the wind. She's an idiot.

comment Junior developers in a remote working environment
The latter in my opinion. I'd like to think I'm slowly but surely creeping up to senior status, but even I benefit from quick conversations I have with the team now and then. If this can be catered for quite easily with conferencing technology then you're halfway there, but I think another benefit, for juniors in particular, is more of a 'learning life skills' thing; being among senior developers can acquaint juniors with a good way of working and managing tasks. To give access to TFS task lists remotely is one thing, to have them observe the more experienced devs manage themselves is another.

comment Junior developers in a remote working environment
I've always wondered about the benefits of remote working from an employer's point of view; I get the impression it's a perk for those remotely working as opposed to the employer. Unless, of course you mean outsourcing to somebody offshore. I think your main concern is the fact that you'll have to have self-motivation near the top of your list of criteria when employing juniors. For a good developer to reach a senior status, you can assume they have a willingness to learn and deliver. But your junior dev must now be someone who wants to get there and progress whilst under a less watchful eye.

comment When is a BIG Rewrite the answer?
"...the truth is if the code was written by you - you won't be able to do any better." Would down-vote this post if I had enough rep. That's defeatest, unrealistic and implies that somehow people cannot progress to the point were the code they write is an improvement on code they wrote in the past.
