comment Servicing background tasks on a large site
What a simple solution. It has sparked ideas for my own project that I wasn't even considering yet. Plus you have full access to your existing code base. Just add a console project to the solution and reference the existing projects.

comment Question about Creating a Scripting Language
I agree with your answer but I believe its not the right answer for this question. I believe the asker is looking at the generalities of creating a scripting language not for the pros/cons of creating one.

comment VB.Net vs C# debate
I was enjoying reading your answer but it seemed to stop suddenly. You provide history of basic that is interesting and I assume correct. I was expecting to find out why you dislike VB.NET and/or why you like C#. "For new projects, VB.NET is a strange choice" Why?
