comment Is it acceptable to define a “module” and “class” within a single .VB element?
If you look at the "side-by-side markdown" diff of my edit you'll see I explicitly told it to format in VB in a comment that also forces it to notice a new code block.

revised Should the sender of an event always be a generic Object?
Mention the even worse event of multiple versions of events.

comment What design patterns could be used here?
It does depend on what you want to generalise and/or which parts of the algorithm are fixed. The obvious adjustment is to abstract the services, allowing inner loops on services and their results. And then, depending upon if your calculate will never need to know about the other service values and any sort of "transaction" needed for the write calls, you could swap the order of the loops and have a get; barrier; calculate; barrier; write; sequence, where either of the barriers may not be needed, depending upon your situation, and error handling.

comment What is a good design for allowing backwards compatibility of files between different versions of software?
The slight issue with this as a "simple" option is that you'll strip all unexpected attributes (or keep them unchanged) when saving the document. As mentioned in other answers, a better solution at least determines in some version agnostic way as to whether an attribute should be dropped, kept or cause the document to become read-only for the versions that do not understand it.

Mention explicit TestUsers and a delete method.

comment SDK/DB isDeleted vs Integration Testing
Right, that is a harder scenario. My first thought is a conditional build that only includes the endpoint for testing purposes. It could be that the WSDL, etc. only includes the endpoint when retrieved by the testing machine's IP address.

comment Has variable width types been replaced by fixed types in modern C?
Anyone happening to want to manually implement pow, remember this code is just an example and does not cater for exponent=0!

comment Project a piece of image cut by N-vertex shape to a different N-vertex shape
So you'd prefer an interpolation that is not linear, but rather "skewed" to keep the internal as similar as possible and have bigger adjustments near the edges, I presume.

If you don't have access to a Win8.1 64-bit machine without Visual Studio installed to test on it will be hard to ensure it works, but as long as you use a .NET Framework version not later than the one installed with Win8.1 you should be OK (as later .NET Frameworks will be used if the one used to build your program is not available, and as long as you don't use a feature broken by an update you'll be fine).
