comment What is the initial value of dynamic memory
depends. Wouldn't depend on it. You can always use calloc. stackoverflow.com/questions/1538420/…

comment How to keep redis server running
There are a few problems with this answer: 1) it doesn't tell the user where the configuration file is stored. 2) It doesn't say which platform this answer applies to (if there are different locations for the configuration file; at least provide which platform you installed it under to get this result) 3) it doesn't even say what the name of the configuration file is.

comment What about an 'Algorithmic Review' type of topic about solution approaches for programming challenges?
@DarthGizka I understand what you're trying to do, and we already have something like that at puzzles.stackexchange.com or codegolf.stackexchange.com; but as far as Stack Overflow goes; we try only to segment based on language; not on meta tags like "this is a programming challenge". Stack Overflow isn't the place to go to find a programming challenge, although you could go here for help with one.

comment What about an 'Algorithmic Review' type of topic about solution approaches for programming challenges?
the difference as always is scope and clarity of the question, not where the question came from. So a blanket " we don't want questions asked on programming contest sites" is a terrible rule because it conflicts with our "we want reasonably scoped and well asked questions." There's a definite Venn diagram where good questions can inhabit both worlds.

comment How do I make a Linq to SQL query faster that includes multiple predicate criteria?
@Joshit Put it in your question, not in a comment. No one can follow code in a comment.

comment How do I make a Linq to SQL query faster that includes multiple predicate criteria?
Show us the equivalent SQL generated that you're running in SQL Server Management Studio, as well as the indexes you have on that table and that table's structure.

comment Is it safe to use not supported libraries in portable class?
We can't answer that question for you; but the developers that maintain restsharp can. you should ask on their Github issues page. github.com/restsharp/RestSharp/issues

comment Why would my question be considered opinion-based? How can I improve the question?
@Fred-ii- I responded to your flag on why your comments were deleted. These will probably be deleted too since they aren't about the meta post. If you want to raise a separate question, you can; but I can save you some time: Comments are ephemeral and subject to deletion for any reason. Want your point of view to stick around? Post it as an answer. Edit: Looks like another mod responded to your flag before I did. So I'll do a 'what they said' in their response.

comment Serving up an Angular 1.x application in Express with static directories exposed
that's the exact thing we use; we have a gulp task for doing that: github.com/Jewelbots/www/blob/master/gulpfile.js#L23

comment Serving up an Angular 1.x application in Express with static directories exposed
we use static directories, I put all the statics inside a dist folder and expose that: github.com/Jewelbots/www/blob/master/main.js#L27 seems to work for us.

revised List of all packages installed using Homebrew
changed apps to 'packages' since that's the nomenclature and this is the top result for "List installed packages homebrew" on Google, meaning changing the title would improve recognition from people searching for these terms that this is indeed what they're looking for.

comment Can't this be rewritten more concisely using fluent syntax?
So what's the programming problem you have? If you have working code you just want rewritten, we have [CodeReview.SE] for that. If you have an actual problem, it needs to be written in such a way that it'll be helpful to others. "Can this be rewritten more concisely using fluent syntax" will never be a useful term for others to see if they have the same problem you do. We also need more than just a dump of your code.
