comment Helper for a LabelFor which wraps an HTML tag
Beautiful. I have to pass null for HtmlAttributes if I don't want them, but that's fine by me. Thanks so much.

comment Can we theoretically balance a perfectly symmetrical pencil on its one-atom tip?
By 'balance', you mean 'guarantee for an arbitrary span of time that the distribution of the pencil's atoms does not change in a way that affects its center of gravity'? No.

comment If magic is real, can it be true that rational scientific thought should exclude it?
Define "real". That will give you a good idea of whether science would be interested in it. Is it observable? Predictable? Measurable? If so, and if anyone is observing, predicting, and measuring it, then it is a science.

comment How smartly implement scripting in game
@Byte56 I know this post is old, but how might you handle parent child relationships? Say we have a Skill tree and you need 10 points in skill A[0] to enable A[1], and 10 points in that to enable A[2], etc. Should I nest these, or flatten them and key on a ParentId? Obviously they're logically equivalent, but I hoped you had some real-world insight.

comment Is "thee" a more respectful way to refer to the person that the speaker is addressing?
It was more formal, but was not necessarily more respectful. As @Catija points out, it's simply no longer used except in highly-specific vernaculars.

I'm able to reproduce it. I don't even have a Data category under Visual C#.

comment Visual Studio 2013 View has an unresolved reference to object
@Kyle-Hale Probably the referenced database already exists, and they don't have the option of recreating it with SSDT. I suspect this is the likeliest scenario in the real (outside of Microsoft labs) world.

comment "Embed" an assembly 'A' in multiple libraries, so that a consumer cannot see A, but any of the libraries can
I think that sounds reasonable. The functions really are just helper methods (clamping numeric values, etc.) that I use frequently, but I don't want to expose as if they are features of the product. So this way I could fix bugs in them, release an update to each library, and it would fit into the general improvements category. So, the runtime would ensure that only a single copy of Core was being used across the assemblies?

comment Is retro-programming on-topic?
Why would you think that those programming languages and techniques 'expire' somehow? What is the length of time, what is the usage graph, that determines when they expire? If you have a programming question, you should ask it here.
