I have been writing software on the .NET platform since about 2001. Since that time I've worked on lots of systems including web portals, asset management, ERP, CRM, content management, email, and SOA. I credit my love of research and the bleeding edge with four years at Microsoft Product Support, where I learned how to learn about technology.

comment how/when is rep_change updated?
If you're trying to track rep independently of the site, via the API, I think you'll tear your hair out. Rep changes like the -1 for downvoting and the +2 for accepting answers are not exposed at all, as far as I can tell.

comment Why does the API lack (proper) HTTP cache control headers?
@Kevin: Incidentally, I am behind a proxy at work and implemented proxy authentication in StackLINQ. If/when you decide to try this out, I can test it, for my particular proxy at least.

Does "no interface changes" mean no new routes, or no changes whatsoever?

comment How far behind is the data returned by calls supposed to be?
DUHH... facepalm/headsmack... I need to find a guinea pig that has non-exponential rep earning potential! So rep for accepts are not controlled by the cap?

@code: The modeling project is no more, the sequence diagram has been added to the main project.

comment StackLINQ: A StackExchange LINQ Provider
@code: It's been quite a journey, LINQ Providers are opaque to say the least ;) I considered basing L2SO on your model, and did a quick spike to try it out, but I had gone too far in another direction. I'll create a clone and clean up the references so the codebase works without issue on download. As for modeling, you want a class diagram?

Yep, that will work, thanks!

comment Please add accepted_date to answers/{id}
@code poet- Thank you, it's nice to come out of the shadows ;) I believe there must be tracking of when answers are accepted, because that information is available by clicking the envelope next to your name. On that page, upvotes on an answer are listed separately from rep awarded for an accepted answer, and the time since the answer was accepted is listed as well.

comment Stack2Blog - Turning your answers into blogs (For “sale”)
You should be able to use general blogging apis to push these into a Wordpress/Drupal/Blogger (etc) draft. It would be great if the draft had some intelligent formatting, using a well-designed template. I would totally use it!

comment What's expected from the answers to an app announcement post
All of the above? This site does seem to turn the "Question" idea on its head...
