comment Organizations of user stories and tasks
A very realistic scenario that I have no clean process for. In my previous team we called these situations "dependant stories" and we organized our sprint backlog in such a way to avoid blocking due to unresolved dependency. This usually involved putting one of the stories at the top of the backlog and the other closer to the bottom. It wasn't perfect, but it worked most of the time.

comment VS or ReSharper shortcut for collapsing properties to one line?
Ctrl-A-Del. But more seriously, you can set up your style preference and just do a Ctrl-K-D to format code to that style.

comment Any tool can capture the http request and fake it later as a server?
I've never done it, but I'm pretty sure you can accomplish something like this with Fiddler with its scripting capability.

comment How would I run an async Task<T> method synchronously?
Not true. Sometimes you're just dealt a shitty hand. I'm stuck with a very old WF workflow that invokes C# code. The C# code now needs to be upgraded to use async/await but this breaks the WF workflow. And, unfortunately, it just isn't possible to update the WF code.

comment Ignoring the generic part of a type while an object is being passed
I'd be curious to see if you find a justification to keep your generic message type.

comment Ignoring the generic part of a type while an object is being passed
Oh, I see. I actually have the same problem in the application I'm maintaining now. The previous developer bent over backwards to keep the type of the message payload only to realize it wasn't used anywhere in the application except at the very end. And even then the application works with a collection of non-generic messages and uses a type metadata property to cast the payload to the right type. Wasted effort, essentially.

I only had a quick skim of the question, but is this along the lines of what you need? stackoverflow.com/questions/6623188/…

comment Voice stream from one android devices to multiple devices?
I don't have the time right now, but I think this question could potentially be saved if its focus shifted to how to design (not implement) a voice broadcast service.

comment Regex for a string
Hi @tech_human, I was a bit unclear. In general, if you post a question to a Stackexchange site and somebody mentions it might be better suited on another site, then the steps to follow are: 1) Confirm the recommendation is correct; 2) Flag your original question for migration (and do not post it a second time). No biggy.

comment Do I retain personal usage rights on my code if I use the framework to quick-start a project at a company?
Although I don't doubt @raptortech97's law credentials, I have to imagine the type of license here matters.

comment Logging instance information in Exceptions
My first thought is that, if you're not careful, you risk causing yet another exception within your catch block.

comment Is question about user interface optimization on topic?
Man, I just want to say thanks for asking. So many people (myself included) just post and hope for the best. You've shown a level of consideration for the community that is apparently rare for September.
