comment Get SPWeb by ID without Site Collection?
Also, unless your code absolutely has to run as the Application Pool service account, then call new SPSite(fullPath, SPUserToken.SystemAccount) instead, without the SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges

comment Get SPWeb by ID without Site Collection?
When you pass http://server/subsite to SPSite, then calling OpenWeb() will be in the context of /subsite. No need to go to AllWebs, which could be slow to enumerate if there are thousands.

comment need to update the item in the list
Have you tried simply enabling major Versions on the list? This'll store each version in the list separately, and the major version number should be available in the GUI.

comment Performance implications of having 10.000 items
I actually had a bet on in 2010 that vNext (which would become SP2013) would physically limit the number of items in a list down to 5,000, because the number of people switching off LV thresholds. Instead they now recommend using search to large query lists :D

comment Performance implications of having 10.000 items
You're actually right, been a while since I dealt with this - originally we were told to page items in code, so we did. Then idiots still didn't do it so they brought in LV thresholds - these are implemented at the database and applied at the web app level. This effectively wiped out perfectly fine handling of large datasets with default settings. Now, we have search which allows stupidly fast querying of 10s of millions of rows.

comment Performance implications of having 10.000 items
Consider rewriting your sentence about "10,000 items in a single row" - as in the context of SharePoint this makes no sense. Users have no idea how many rows in SQL a SharePoint item consumes, nor can they control it.

comment Performance implications of having 10.000 items
Yeah, the list view threshold is 5000 items but if you're bringing back 100 at a time then that won't affect you. Another thing to note is Lookup, Managed Metadata and People/Group columns - those can slow things down, but pure text/number/date columns (the primitive types) can have surprisingly good performance.

comment Difference Between Item.Update and Item.SystemUpdate?
What's the actual Error? There's a trace but you've cropped off the actual error message from the top.

comment Manage exchange 2010 calendar from SP 2013
Hah, the latter certainly wouldn't work :) If you design each of the page's functionality very clearly, and state what each page needs to do, and what information it needs, and what decisions it needs to ask the user for - then this shouldn't be too difficult a task for your developers. Note that instead of InfoPath Forms, your devs may also want to use custom web parts or even custom SharePoint Application Pages to perform this. I think it depends on your design of what the forms should do, and leave it up to your devs if they know which route to go down.

comment Manage exchange 2010 calendar from SP 2013
Is there a particular reason you want this in SharePoint? Do the capabilities of Outlook Web Access not suffice for this?

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.
