  • Google... smoogle...

  • How fast does my page load?

    Several questions arise surrounding performance with web applications.  Many times it's difficult to tell exactly where the bottleneck in the loading time of the page may be.  Is it the page size, page generation duration, image sizes, number of images, connections to other locations, DNS delays, bandwidth bottleneck or whatever?  ...

  • .NET 2.0 Redistributable... where to get?

    If your looking for the redists, you can find *all* of them here.  (Of course, they are in the SDK directory when you install VS... but just in case.) Marko asked me via IM if I knew where to find the redists.  I told him to look in the SDK folder (was guessing, since I'm still installing at the moment.)  He found them there... but ...

  • The OUTPUT Clause (Transact-SQL)

    While working on a side project, I decided to use VS2K5 and SQL2K5.  One of the things I needed to do was take some external data and import it into the database in a normalized manner.  I also needed to insert into some additional tables the newly (automatically) created id to link some data.  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (and ...

  • Documentation... Documentation... Documentation!

    Well, the MVP Summit calmed down at about 3:30pm today and, although I'm extremely tired, I have to say my Microsoft batteries are recharged.  But...
