comment Should temporary files be saved to /tmp or the current working directory?
@FedericoPoloni: sorry that I was unclear. The OP's post says that he only has problem when trying to save outside of his working directory, so I supposed it works ok. Without any other mention, I guess the working directory might be the home directory as well.

comment Should temporary files be saved to /tmp or the current working directory?
just for comment: I see many linux program create hidden folder inside user working directory (start with '.' in the folder name). It will not have any permission issue, and those users won't complain if they don't see it

comment ASP.NET deployment/maintenance best practices
I agree that any manual operation is deployment process is error-prone and should be avoided. Also agree that configuration management could be a nightmare (my current team is meeting that problem). One of the solution I'd propose is to keep an up-to-date configuration file along to each environment (development, staging, production). The MS Build process should be automated to take account of those files, and always do full deployment (no partial file overwriting allowed). It would help keep track of what is actually on production server.

comment Is it possible for two DLLs to conflict , preventing solution to build
Actually it happens a lot, if you build solutions based on popular third party libraries. For example, a twitter libraries may depends on an older version of your json lib

comment Why can't the IT industry deliver large, faultless projects quickly as in other industries?
I will check the book. However, I don't think these problems (lack of professionalism, active resistance) don't happen in other industries.

do you have any data to backup your argument?

comment How to assure users that website and passwords are secure
OpenID is good, but username/passwork is ok too. I don't think your problem is to persuade users that your site is secure. Since you are inexperienced, it's like promising something you don't have. Just apply common standards - you won't stop professional hackers come, but no one can blame you either.

comment Graph theory problem (name unknown)
in my opinion, bruteforce is enough for this problem (if there are only 4 cities). Call n the maximum number of routes between 2 cities, then the number of all possibilities are n * n * n * n = n^4. For a more optimized solution, you may consider back-tracking.

comment Wise way to implement a website login and database tables for a small shop
@GustavoRodríguezSuarez: maybe you decide already... I only want to add a perspective. Because "User" and "Account" are 2 things, you have a good bet separating them. What will happen if some user don't have to have an account? Of course it depends on your usecase

comment Wise way to implement a website login and database tables for a small shop
Whoever gives you that advice should be a developer. It's natural to separate the concept of "User" of your system to "Account" which can be used to login into your system. For example, a user may or maynot have an account. But only you know about which business rule you need.
