comment XsltListViewWebPart and custom link column
Can you provide some more info about the SharePoint version and why you are using XSLT at all, instead of JSLink client-side JavaScript rendering templates. Thanks!

Thanks Vadim. FYIO: the link you pointed me to mentions a June 30th 2014 release date. Couldn't find it when I asked in August, though sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/113238/…

Vadim: do you by any chance know if and which CU for on-premises contains the required REST API changes to make the above code work for SP on-premises installations? TIA!

comment How does Datasheet View Calculate width?
Can you provide a screenshot? That would help immensely to narrow down the CSS class/id responsible for the hickup.

comment Jslink field run function after field is rendered
Well, OnPostRender is an event which doesn't allow to pass parameters. So, you would need to hardcode the fieldname.

comment Setting an SPSite to read-only from Application Page
Still looking into this. I remember a change MSFT made back in SP2010 preventing changes on SPFarm and SPWebApplication if derived from SPSite or SPWeb. This issue sounds very similar even if you are trying to change a SPSite property. Just an idea, I'll keep you posted about my findings.

comment Setting an SPSite to read-only from Application Page
AFAIK, yes the system account should be FarmAdmin. Another idea is that special content DB permissions are required but missing. Can you try to run your code from an application page deployed under Central Admin?

comment Setting an SPSite to read-only from Application Page
I'd some more code to check what account is used with the TimerJob and also what role/permissions it has. I'm starting to believe that FarmAdmin permissions are required.

<script type="text/javascript"></script> might cause SP to puke either. Try to add at least one line of valid JS inside like var x = 0;

Sorry, your original post used $(document).ready(function() { implying that you use jQuery. See my updated answer.

comment JavaScript is breaking my theme in SharePoint 2013
When I turn off JavaScript in Firefox for testing purpose, the background image doesn't load (because SP2013 requires JS to apply the background image) but the basic theme colors are applied, hence I asked for a screen capture to shed more light into this issue.
