The 30min are interesting.
- Hey Mike, how long shall we let them wait ?
- I guess one hour, depends on the modem speed.
- Sounds about a lot, though.
- Yeah, let's make it 30min, they'll try twice anyway before calling.
I thought the same thing. Perfect example of arbitrary choice of value by dev that makes the user think it has some kind of significance.
Also, waiting 30 minutes doesn't fix it anyways. The immediate fix is to close Outlook and open it again.
Of course, the pop-up doesn't mention that at all. Instead it has the user calling up the admin.
0) Threw out all of the EF6 code not directly associated with they Identity stuff, and replaced it with home-grown ADO code that is faster and smaller, and just as dynamic.
1) Learned that SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery ALWAYS returns -1 when you execute a stored proc. I had to write code to add a ReturnValue parameter, and then modify all of the applicable stored procs to return @@ROWCOUNT in order to intelligently handle the number of affected rows.
2) I'm finally making forward progress again. I have the Register/Login stuff about 90% done. Just two more major items left before making the demo.
3) I'm having issues getting my model and a dropdownlist to talk to each other intelligently. I'm just missing some small piece to that puzzle.
3) I still hate Entity Framework, and all its ilk.

Where I used to work we were an ASP + Sql Server shop before the NET framework came out.
Some junior grade web-designer got the boss to let him create a new CMS based on MVC3 with a backend based on LINQ-2-SQL.
I learned C# really quick to troubleshoot the (tunnel vision) errors and another year to replace the backend connection to ADO. Since then I have no desire to try another ORM

The guys I work with have an app that's pretty much committed to EF, and they have their own DB wrapper DLL that introduces high levels of abstraction. I don't need any of this, and I don't want any of the monster dependencies their DB wrapper requires for my own little utility--which connects to that same DB, but otherwise is pretty much standalone.
I wrote a rather thin wrapper around ADO, and have managed to avoid EF thus far. The other devs know I'm doing this and not using their EF-based wrapper, and have never questioned it or raised any sort of objection.
