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.

comment Applying common styles to multiple HNCS: What is the best practice?
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
