I'm a web developer currently employed with lamontdesign ltd.

I code mostly in PHP, javascript / jQuery and MySQL. I know some Java, can do a little bash scripting & know my way around *nix.

I usually answer questions on here when I have something difficult to think about and need a distraction to give my brain some time to mull it over.

comment register_nav_menus, then create menus programatically
Because when I make a WP site, most of the time I want a specific set of top-level pages in the nav menu (not all of them). This means install wp -> install theme -> add some example pages -> add menus, which is inefficient when you do it 10 times. It would be a time-saver to auto-generate the menu on theme install, then make appropriate edits later. The other side of the coin is that the theme is used by some of my collegues and I often have to go in and create the main nav menu for them; they don't realise it needs to be created each time.

comment register_nav_menus, then create menus programatically
great answer, and very useful info - but I still do want to create the menus themselves programatically. I know I don't have to but whenever I install my theme the first thing I do is create the main nav menu as 99% of the time it is always a custom menu. Your point about wp_nav_menu falling back is good to know though :)

not my theme, but couldn't speak for all plugins. I have none installed that do anything with media, but you never know. regenerating thumbnails at the moment

yeah I uploaded the images after writing that part of the theme - I think. To be sure I'll regenerate them again now though, that might be it.
