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...

comment When webservers send a page, why don't they send all required CSS, JS, and images without being asked?
@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

comment IIS 7.5 and 404 error with non-www domain but no subdomain
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.

comment IIS 7.5 and 404 error with non-www domain but no subdomain
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.

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.

comment Redirect visitors when site is too busy
For IIS you can change the responseMode from File to Redirect and then specify an absolute URL which will allow you to send the requests to a different server.

What server are you running on? IIS? Apache?

comment Broken URL requests with “?rand=0.nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn” querystrings from Chrome users
On your final paragraph's concern - is it actually re-issuing POST requests, or just GETs? If it also resends form submissions (POST) then yes, that could be a problem, if it's only re-issuing GET requests, then other than the scenario of increasing a counter many of the other actions should be handled by a POST.

comment Frequency & Recency in Google Analytics. How to read the histogram?
The reason there are lines with more than the line before is because they are aggregate lines: Count of 8: 22 Sessions; Count of 9-14: 69 Sessions. If that line was broken down into the individual counts of 9, 10 11, 12, 13 and 14 you would see a continuation of your monotonically decreasing scale.

comment What is Manifest for Web Application, and do we need it?
I'd say "not yet" based on the warnings on the top of the page: "Implementors need to be aware that this specification is extremely unstable. Implementors who are not taking part in the discussions will find the specification changing out from under them in incompatible ways.". If Chrome's the only browser currently implementing this, you're still going to need to implement the fallbacks anyway for now...

comment Can I use imgur as a CDN?
While they might well be doing that, there is no explicit guarantee that they will.

Is the site also hosted in Iran? It's possible that the requests are all being blocked as well

comment Do people still use RSS feeds?
You could publish an RSS feed containing only the summaries/standfirsts of your articles, with a "read more" for readers to click through into the main article on your site - then everyone wins ;)

comment Naked domain to “www” redirect in Windows Server 2008
You shouldn't need to create a separate site in IIS for the root domain and then redirect it, you can do all of that with one site: Set up the site to respond on both techint.com and www.techint.com host headers, and then use the URL Rewrite Module to enable the "Canonical Domain Name" template in the SEO Rule Templates section.
