comment Client Object Model Equivalent of SPSiteDataQuery?
Those stumbling across this in the SP2013 generation - use Search to do this, plenty available with the REST API and Result Sources.

comment 10 Application pool limit question
As an aside, the reason the limit doesn't apply to service apps is because you can specify exactly which servers each service runs on. The Web Application Service will load up every single content application pool you have defined.

You'll need to deploy the assets to each separate farm and use relative URLs in your references.

comment How to remove orphaned features
Thanks, just had to use this myself - one dev box, multiple dev branches, not retracting a newer branch before deploying an older one = orphaned features when deploying the old one over the new :(

comment Reading SharePoint Document Library File names using CSOM
SharpZipLib won't load files from a URI, only a local path. If you can open the file using SPFile.OpenBinaryStream() you may be able to pass that into SharpZipLib.

comment Reading SharePoint Document Library File names using CSOM
A zip folder isn't a folder, it's a compressed file. You'll need to use server side code with some third party libraries to extract and inspect the file.

comment The referenced file is not allowed on this page O365 Sharepoint
Yes I had this when opening the file from visual studio. My solution was to stop doing that because it just became annoying xD

comment Reading SharePoint Document Library File names using CSOM
You need a recursive method. It returns void and takes in a Folder parameter. You do your work on the parameter being passed in. You then need to load and ExecuteQuery on the Folders property. You then do a foreach over the Folders property, and within that you call the method that you're in, passing in the current iterator. To see example code of this, see here: pastebin.com/Vac3zyF8

comment GetAvailablePageLayouts complains of parent site
I reference "two instances" of PublishingWeb, I actually think this could happen if you create a PublishingWeb to a site collection that is different to HttpContext.Current. Either way, it breaks it somehow, so just set to null whilst you do your shizz then set it back.

comment How to check username/accountname under which the code runs?
(Jumping on an old thread) - Because WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent() reflects the app pool and not the actual thread of the user's request - use Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity.Name for this.
