comment Best practice mapping an external id on my system
I understand what you are talking about (the system is broken if an ID changes), but maybe it's my fault for poor writing skills: What if the external system changes (from one vendor to another, where one uses autoincremented integers as ID and another uses GUID's as ID) and the new system vendor doesn't have the will to provide the previous ID ? This is a possible real-case scenario that my business has to live with. And I just receive the ID, so I can't compare other properties.

comment Model-View-Controller: who caches the data?
Is there any constraint requiring you to cache the data ? If not, than you shouldn't. Caching is another layer of complexity, and should be used only if the benefits surpasses the cost of using it.

@Blrfl, shouldn't be a problem, if he doesn't know I wrote the code in the first place. But I like your style. +1. :)

comment How to ensure a project 100% tested?
"...just that you know that all of it will always work sometimes." - This phrase made me chuckle. Nothing is more true in software development than this.

comment Lua & Javascript documentation generation
I understand, but if you don't mind, I'd like to share a thought: From your point of view, this make sense: 1 style fits all documentation. From my point of view, if I'm working with Lua, I expect the documentation in Luadoc-style. If I'm working with Java, I expect the documentation on JavaDoc-style. If I'm working with .Net, in MSDN-style, and so on. My (uninformed) opinion is that an "one-style-fits-all" documentation does not make your API easier to use to a new developer.

comment Lua & Javascript documentation generation
I don't know any tool for both of them. But for Lua there is LuaDoc. And a little googling led me to this question at StackOverflow.

comment A good interpreted language for a small embedded project
I'd like to add that the eLua project also has a port to ARM M3, I think it will be useful to you.

comment What do you do with coder's block?
Well, when this kind of thing happens to me, I take some time to walk, or sleep, or have a good ice-cream. Though I shouldn't have ice-creams nowadays. Some people advocate that exercises are good for this kind of burn-out, so you could slow your mind and let your body come to the same beat. Well, even a good game of Counter Strike may help.

+1, just 1 point to add: Today you can easily read Excel files on .Net using NPOI or EPPlus, both free.

comment How should I deal with Time Zones in a .NET WCF application?
On a side note, it may be worth to know that there is a good library about date/time manipulation, called NodaTime. There is also a less-updated blog about it here. This library is a port of the good java library Joda Time, and was ported by our always good friend Jon Skeet.
