comment Is it good practice to "force" users to update their browser?
Maybe the CSS file itself could be done using server-side scripting. The browser would cache whichever version gets loaded, thereby greatly reducing the server load compared to having server-side scripting on each page. But I agree that it shouldn't be necessary.

comment Prolog: My newly created list becomes empty on exiting recursion?
It isn't clear what you're trying to do. Could you please give a brief description of the problem you're trying to solve and the algorithm you're trying to implement? Moreover, I have noticed that ReturnList is not referenced in the definition of df_real. Am I right in thinking you want to build up the list in here?

comment Efficient way to read big endian data in C#
Yes, I've used something like this for some of my projects (albeit not in C#). But I had expected BinaryReader/Writer to have endian control built in, which would make it much simpler.

"expection" looks like a typo (it does have a meaning of its own, but this doesn't seem to be what it's talking about)

comment Visual Web developer - console application , how to
According to the book I'm working from (geared towards VS2013), there should be an App.config file, but there isn't one to be seen. Is this anything I need to worry about?

comment Can a two-dimensional gradient be created (or faked) in SVG?
That link isn't working for me at the moment - I get an XML parsing error. It seems the SVG has turned into a binary file.

comment SQL Server : how to loop through a table applying multi-record updates to another?
The materials table has a internal, numeric primary key field - is this good enough? (I left it off previously in trying to simplify the problem.)

comment SQL Server : how to loop through a table applying multi-record updates to another?
@Damien_The_Unbeliever The initial data values I had are just dummy values. I'll zero them to avoid confusion. I think that those records that haven't been updated yet should be all the same except for the type_id, and so it doesn't matter which individual records are updated.
