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.

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.

Please include the gist of your post incase the link dies one day. Other readers: basically re-get the item by its ID.

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.

comment SharePoint designer is showing “Server error: this file may not be moved, deleted, renamed or otherwise edited”
That is correct - you do not modify the .masterpage if it has an associated .html file. It is intended that you modify the .html file instead when using this model. If you do not wish to use this model, do not copy & paste one of the OOTB masterpage files in 2013, and use a minimal master template from somewhere like Randy Drisgill's blog.

I've noticed this too. Think it's a bug myself.
