comment “Service too busy” exception occurrs when trying to programmatically activate a sandbox feature with an attached feature receiver
My solution is currently deployed to a local (on-premise) SharePoint instance for development purposes, but it'll be deployed to SharePoint Online in production. Also, the features with receivers all activate fine when activated individually via the UI -- the exception only occurrs when I try to activate them programmatically inside another feature receiver (i.e. I have one feature which activates a bunch of others, acting like a site definition).

comment Recommended Visual Studio solution design for new SharePoint 2010 intranet
Thanks for your feedback @Dandroid. My research also indicates the more projects the merrier. Making use of features such as solution dependancies and feature versioning can also make life easier here it seems. I'm still really looking for some specifics on how to break down / structure the actual projects (check out the link I added to my original post, it gives a great example of using solution folders). I'm still perplexed on where to draw the line between using a logic breakdown (i.e. splitting projects by content types, lists, web parts etc) vs a functional breakdown (i.e. "purpose").

comment Is it possible to limit the visibility of list items to not only just me (the author), but anyone from my company too?
I ended up creating a unique folder for each company and a SharePoint group containing the users from each company too. I then granted "contribute" permissions on each folder to its corresponding group only (this prevents people from "Company A" seeing or accessing the "Company B" folder and vice versa). The only extra bit of dev required here was to create an event receiver which displayed an error page whern users tried to add items tothe very root of the list.

comment SharePoint 2010: Grant access to CONTENTS of a specific folder only
Thanks for your comments Zork. I ended up using an event receiver as suggested to prevent users from adding items to the list's root folder and editing the folder names directly. Another thing I realised that I had to do was grant EVERY department group "contribute" rights on the entire list (i.e. not just their single folder) as this is what allows them to add items to the list period. So i'm 90% of the way there... All I need to do is find out a way to hide the "add new item" link for ALL users in the root folder. Any ideas here?
