He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment Loading main javascript on every page? Or breaking it up to relevant pages?
Yep, with this size of JS, coupled with the fact that it's mostly fairly common libraries, the use of a CDN will be a big benefit.

comment Technical website - Should I assume that my visitors will use a modern browser?
Yep, as another example, my own personal website which has a tech focused blog, along with some family photos still has 24% of it's traffic as IE8 with fairly tech heavy posts as the most popular, followed by Firefox and then Chrome (which now both auto-update)

comment Why is BingBot causing so many 404 errors by removing letters from url's?
How might you know the number of pages indexed? The same way you'd do it on Google: search for site:doodle.co.uk

comment running multiple name-based web applications on a single ip address with SSL
@Bruno - nope, I didn't mean trying to use the same IP address on different adaptors - I did mean multiple IP addresses.

comment running multiple name-based web applications on a single ip address with SSL
Yes, although I see that you've also offered this as your first option ;) To be honest, it looks like the either way there are going to have to be some compromises - either more IP addresses, issues with older browsers/OS's or a level of cost and security in the DMZ.

Tidied up the grammar and question a little bit to make it slightly clearer without fixing the underlying confusion.

comment Where to store users consent (EU cookie law)
I'd happily give +1 for the cookie option, but I can't give +1 for the IP option - as @Mark points out, consumer ISP will reuse IP's for different connections, so if I refuse, but my neighbour accepts, and later our IPs switch and you start storing cookies I'd not be happy. Equally, companies often have multiple users behind a single firewall all sharing an external IP address. This needs to be a per-user setting - at the machine level...
