I'm currently a Systems Specialist at Rapid Sheet Metal, Rapid Machining and other Rapid Companies. What's that mean? I architect, develop and implement solutions that help us turn around prototype parts quickly without sacrificing quality.

View my LinkedIn Profile if you're interested in my career side, or my Facebook Profile to learn more about me in general.

Alternatively, I have a pseudo-blog if you're that bored. You should be warned, I use it mostly for things I find are interesting or something I had to do a lot of searching for and feel others would appreciate an index-able resource.

comment Host an MVC 3 with Razor syntax app on old server
It is that simple, just make sure to run aspnet_regiis -ir in the `%Windows%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.xxx` directory to apply the framework to IIS.

agile & working conditions aren't synonymous (at least in my experience). You can roll out minor/frequent changes and still do so from the comforts of a cozy office.

comment How to deal with code reuse philosophy?
@Caleb: Agreed. Never said it was elegant just that deadlines are deadlines. During a refactor I will recognize multiple projects using the same code and go through and break them out in to their own libraries. But when I need to get it out the door, copy-paste works. It also gives me flexibility to make modifications for that one project and I keep those changes in mind when I break the library out and want to make it both solid and flexible.

comment What are some best practices for report writing?
Without having any context to the kinds of reports your business/environment needs, it's too localized; without knowing what specific details about reports you're looking to make more clear, it's too broad. Care to be more detailed with regards to what you're envisioning the outline to entail?

comment Showing real time data using WCF call (silverlight)
You could also use two-way WCF binding and let the server push updates to the client. Depending what constitutes as an update (and if the server itself would be aware) it may be better suited since you'll only get updates when they're necessary.

comment Why is $ in identifier names for so many languages?
Interesting post on SO regarding the same question: Why do Perl variables need to start with $, %, @ (sigils)

comment What is the accepted style for using the `this` keyword in Java?
Though I agree, when coming across other developers' code (and while being unfamiliar at first glance) I find this. a lot more helpful. This is also probably because I don't have an IDE that color-codes local/object variables differently.
