Upcoming C# 6.0 language features that I really don't like

Having used C# professionally for about 9 years now I have seen many iterations of the language, starting at the C# 1.1 days.

'WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions' is undefined in IE11

IE11 doesn't recognise the user agent string though you will need to do some digging to get the fix; good thing I've already done that digging.

The CMS is not the be-all, end-all

You can't build a website without a CMS right? Wrong. And your website might be all the better for it.
