comment IIS 7.5 and 404 error with non-www domain but no subdomain
Hmm, I wish you luck with that, you have no guarantee that that service will stick around as you're not paying for it :-( You'd be better off talking to your hosting provider and asking them if they support domains without the www. and if not consider switching to one who does.

comment Side effects of customising a users currency based upon their IP
Yes, should have been more specific - you're right, they won't show the exact option, but will hopefully show all options.

comment Side effects of customising a users currency based upon their IP
You could try rendering out all currencies in the mark-up and then show/hide the relevant ones through JS or CSS (I.e. Set a wrapper class based on region and then wrap each currency in a span so you could say .gb .usd {display: none;} to hide all US$ span elements

comment When webservers send a page, why don't they send all required CSS, JS, and images without being asked?
@DavidMeister Again that's a trade off that should really be made be the client, they are more likely to know what their local constraints are. If what you really want is alternate reality answers then your question should be "How can we modify servers and clients to minimise requests". However, you can already do this now: inline all your CSS and JS, base-64 encode your images and add those to the page, and loose out on the parallelization of requests to load your additional resources...

@DavidMeister Because the server doesn't always know what the client wants - a webcrawler for a search engine might not care about the CSS/JS, and there are many other resources linked in a document beyond those - there's no need to send the entire RSS feed down in the package to a web browser (most of the content is probably in the HTML already), while a feed reader might just parse the <head> element looking for the RSS alternate links to find just that - the client could send a list of what it's interested in, but then it needs to know what's available and we're back at the beginning

True - but they don't state that they are their 404 error pages ;) If the OP's seeing the correct 404's then there is an issue with the routing on their site (which is a different issue) rather than an issue with the bindings - if the 404's are coming from their site then the bindings must be correct.

Not sure what you were seeing in previous versions - if you explicitly set a domain and removed the default (domainless) binding, you always had to explicitly set both www. and non www. versions in IIS.

comment Update .NET website without reloading
In response to your bounty comment: the large websites I work on handle small changes to code the same way they handle large changes to code: through load-balancers and out of process sessions - because all code that is deployed to live needs to go through a review/sign-off process and we can't just drop code on the servers. I guess our definitions of "large" may not match ;)

A good set of steps there - certainly something to consider :)

comment Update .NET website without reloading
I've updated my answer to address a couple of those points: MEF was released by MS and has been a full part of the .NET framework since v4. You could try using code-in-front for your new controls, alternatively adopt a load-balanced/staging-live setup that would enable to get a server up and running and then swap it in.

revised Update .NET website without reloading
Added a note about MEF being part of the .NET framework, the possibilty of using code-in-front model and also mentioned load-balancers.

comment How do you mark a website you developed in order to show it as a proof of your work
As you state that tag should detail the author of the content rather than the developer/designer.

revised How hard is it to get back in the search results after being offline for a long time?
There's no value to using `example.com` here - it's not adding any value or clarity to the question.
