Not binaries as in dlls and exes, however there are a number of image and zip binaries.

comment Git-based storage and publishing, infrastructure advice
Thanks for the tips ... this gives me a lot of information that I can go on. The shallow clone reduces the size of the repository by several gigs, but it's still about 3gigs in size, so it takes a good bit to clone still.

comment Git-based storage and publishing, infrastructure advice
@LucFranken hmm, interesting ... I actually wasn't aware there was a way to just fetch the latest without pulling in the entire history. This actually significantly solves one aspect of the issue :) Alright, so what about the idea of serving HTML files generated by a worker ... can an azure web site access the same disk location without resorting to uploading/downloading hundreds of files from blob storage?

comment Git-based storage and publishing, infrastructure advice
@LucFranken: Not that many, definitely a tolerable amount by any accounts ... as far as update frequency. The problem I suppose is that I'd have to write this to disk, so the code would have to be written such that if (!repoOnDisk) Fetch() ... and this would be unreliable from a publishing speed perspective depending on how often the worker role gets recycled (which wipes out the local disk, right?)

@LucFranken no, it's too much data. The repository is rather large (several gigs), so the ability to only fetch diffs and maintain it locally is somewhat of a requirement.

comment Should you keep a copy of all the code you write?
The other approach for this is that when I encounter a useful/reusable bit of code that I'd like to "take with me" ... I simply go home, and write a blog post about the particular API or technique that has interested me. This blog post of course does not reference my employer, nor does it use, line by line, the code written on my employer's dime.

comment Buy vs. Build - FTP Service
@Jeremy, yep, not enough. @Jon, yes ... confidential client data. @Frustrated ROI isn't the question. @qes, similar situation with us, FTPing itself is not a core part of our business, but communicating the data itself is.

yeah, the queryable status/callback is a rather important feature. Will take a look at rebex if we decide to build. thanks :-)
