comment What is a “wrapper” program?
Sounds like a more appropriate term would be something like a "Sentinel/Watcher" program.

comment Should I learn java for mobile application development or will C# just do?
+1 for mentioning the Mono* options. If the demand is high enough from developers then they'll branch out to the other phone platforms as well.

comment Why do new programmers seem to ignore compiler error messages/runtime exception messages?
@George: if that were true, every married programmer wouldn't have problems understanding their wife.

comment Windows programming - should you leave UAC on?
@Walter: you can create windows services un-elevated. You need elevated rights to install/uninstall the service though. You should never be installing something directly from the IDE anyways, so an elevated command prompt works better since that's what the IT Pros would end up using.

comment Windows programming - should you leave UAC on?
How does leaving UAC off help? Web app development shouldn't require admin rights, except for setting up IIS initially. Windows services would require admin rights to start and stop, but through a single command window and net start/stop you have a single UAC prompt. Otherwise you should have the logic built so you have a command line runner and a Win Service runner.
