IUnknown Windows Azure mumblings of IUnknown
Last week I was neck deep into some code + good ol SQL and it was a serious jam! I knew mighty well the thing cooking in my head but the hands have mind of their own. It dawned on me that I am a terrible typist. Had I known how to touch type I could have accomplished a lot more without having to slog the weekend. Now most the people who know me would ......

At the DreamForce 2010 event in San Francisco Force.com unveiled their next big thing in the Fat SaaS portfolio "Database.com". I am still wondering how would they would've shelled out for that domain name.

A fantastic set of Q and A on and around virtualization by some of the 'folks in the know'. The guys that (un?)arguably understand the virtualization business better than anyone else. Intel Fellow, Rich Uhlig and VMWare Chief Platform Architect, Rich Brunner and of course the man himslef, Anand Lal Shimpi. http://www.anandtech.com/sh... ......

The Extreme computing group has released a fairly comprehensive set of benchmarks for almost all aspects of WA. They have also provided the source code to alleviate all doubts that may surface with the MSFT logo lurking around the top right of their homepage :) (Which also resides at a cloudapp.net url). The code is simple and the tests comprehensive ......

What exactly were you taking of late MSFT? So much for a spanking new mobile OS which wants to emulate the iPhone OS so badly that it even copied and pasted the iPhone’s erstwhile lack of clipboard support as well? The reason given is so lame (shall I say differently able?) that deserves pity rather than lament. According to MSFT people don’t use the ......

LinqPad as we all know has been a wonderful tool for running ad-hoc queries. With Windows Azure Table storage in picture LinqPad was no longer in picture and we shifted focus to Cloud Storage Studio only to realize the limited and strange querying capabilities of CSS. With some tweaking to Linqpad we can get the comfortable old shoe of ad-hoc queries ......

Found an interesting resource thanks to a close friend. Ping.eu is a free service which would let you test various aspects related to networks which would typically be pain inducing doing it on your own. For seasoned network professional having a MAC address of their own instead of a name :) this might not be that useful. However for a layperson like ......

Spent the last weekend fighting to get firefox to connect to a sharepoint portal hosting my homegrown TFS instance's TFS/WEB and team project portal from a friends' place.Firefox is THE favourite browser and I was hating to se it fail miserably with NTLM authentication.

Last time we saw some interesting initialization constructs possible with LINQ. Hope some of you have tried it out. If not, it’s never too late. LinqPad is a good friend in need. This time around we’d take a look at two common looping scenarios. 1. Looking up an object by name: Object lookup is commonplace while dealing with collections. Let’s look ......

LINQ as we all know provides intrinsic data querying capabilities to the framework languages supporting LINQ. Going forward its an obvious way to code clean, and with growing number of LINQ providers (LINQ to SQL, LINQ to Entities, LINQ to XML, LINQ for Maps, and not to forget DryadLinq and pLinq for us Cloudy folks’ Parallel Computing needs, and so ......
