comment Is Classic/NTLM based authentication a security riskfor Internet facing sites?
FBA with SSL will still use NTLM for authentication, I meant that Kerberos cannot be used on the internet (without a shared, trusted key provider aka Domain Controller or some other setup which would be beyond the abilities of most users)

comment Error while restoring Site Collection to the same server
Is it an old backup? If you applied patches (SP or CU) between the backup and the restore, you will get this error message

comment Sharepoint List Column to pdf
Uh. Right. It's late :P But it comes down to just formatting strings as you suggested, not really specific to SharePoint

comment App prison break
I see where you are going, but doesn't it come down to the fact that you shouldn't be installing Apps from unknown/less trustworthy sources on your corporate portal? I don't buy this whole "let your users go get apps by themselves on The Internets! Weee bunnies and unicorns!" Office Store crap

comment Sharepoint 2013 Content Search vs. Javascript CSOM
@Ubi Did you set your Search permissions to QueryAsUserIgnoreAppPrincipal as specified in your reference article? If so, the search query should be as the current user

comment Is there a difference between a Sharepoint Hosted App and a Cloud Hosted App?
Also, event and feature receivers are server-side code only (Server Object Model). If you are building Apps, look into Remote Event Receivers

comment Is there a difference between a Sharepoint Hosted App and a Cloud Hosted App?
You could technically convert ("upgrade"?) a SharePoint-hosted App to a Provider- or Auto-Hosted App by adding code to your original project. All 3 types of Apps have App Webs with the no-code restriction, and you host your code somewhere else (Azure or other server) or not at all for SP-Hosted

comment If I have several items' IDs, how can I use that to retrieve a specific field value?
I would also suggest to look into Promises/Deferred objects, which make this kind of code somewhat clearer to read.

I wish I could give this answer more than one upvote. The basic problem is indeed understanding of how asynchronous programming works. And +1 for suggesting ListData.svc which is much better suited for such a simple task.

comment SP2013 - API for Administration
Yeah, the title says SharePoint online. It is possible there with the Tenant API, which has no equivalent on premises
