Wow, so much for democracy. 



Hey INVIDA, In case you weren't aware of it FREAKIN' VISTA WENT ON SALE TUESDAY. You seem to be aware of the existence of Vista but you don't support any of the hardware I have that had "Vista Ready" written all over the packaging when I bought it. Your site has "Vista blah blah blah" all over it but most of us with your hardware CANNOT run it because ......

Dear SQL Server team, I'm using the latest version of your product and in Visual Studio 2005 you can setup Intergration Services Projects and on the surface it looks rather cool. Trouble is, you didn't finish the toolset did you? My gripe here has to do with the "Advanced Editor for SQL Server Destination" dialog. If you have issues with data conversion ......

Hey NVIDIA, I for one have put a TON of money into my machine here at home, you know staying current has its price. I have a super nice Asus SLi motherboard, dual eVGA video cards that were rediculously expensive (they still are come to think of it), loads of memory and freakin' fast hard drives and all of this for what? So I can run Vista. When are ......

Saturday, January 20 Eight days after the ice starting falling, the electric service was restored to my neighborhood. Eight long days and nights of freezing temperatures, frozen plumbing, and other dangerous situations. Three of my neighbors had plumbing freeze and pipes rupture while others had their generators stolen. The sadest thing that happened ......

At about 11:30 PM last night our neighbors who had power suddenly lost it with a bright flash and a large boom. After seeing how quickly City Utilities moved in to fix the problem I wondered why it was that our street, the one right down the middle of the rapidly repaired area, was still in the dark. One would assume that since they were out there "working ......

Late in the day on Friday, January 12 it started raining here in Springfield, Missouri. As we have been in desperate need of rainfall in our area for some time this was welcome on one hand but a greater curse on the other. The problem with the rain that fell non-stop for 2 days was that it was freezing rain; it was 33 degrees and it just kept coming ......

Dear Microsoft, Please send me a free Zune. As a married man with children I cannot afford to buy one; the wife simply refuses to entertain the idea. Furthermore, since I am an :uber-geek C# programmer, I would like to be able to show the iPodders in my office just how cool the Zune is. I look forward to hearing from you, Jeff ......

You want to know what gets me? Do you? Well....when I'm running through the reviews of Windows XP Professional 64 bit Edition over at newegg.com and idiots are making statements like this one from Green Martian: “Of course you’ll have to search for 64 bit drivers the world over, then you might not even find them. Your selection of 64 bit ......

Alright, I have a problem with the datagridview control and I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light on this. Also, please keep in mind that I'm doing this from memory right now so if I get anything wrong, I apologize in advance so please don't stomp on me! I have a custom data source (LLBLGen Pro collection, actually) that I am databinding ......

Here is a brief list of tools that I use either for development or in general. I cannot survive without them (actually I can but you get the point): 1. JetBrains ReSharper - http://www.jetbrains.com/re... I cannot live without this tool. Honest. Buy it and prepare to be amazed how how much it will save you time. Upgrade to Visual Studio 2005 and ......

Oh my, I'm so hopelessly addicted to ReSharper it's not funny. Now that I'm coding VS 2005, I miss it so and I know a new version is in the works but, I simply cannot stand waiting for it. Now that I have that off my chest, I digress. Let's talk about Windows XP Professional x64. Yes, the OS that I'm using now, the OS that I'm running with extreme pleasure. ......

And on top of that, adding a combo box to a datagrid column isn't as hard as I thought it would be...sometimes I make things too darn complicated in me head. If only I could get my wife to agree that I really do need the latest version of the Ingragistics suite....yeah, I'm dreaming again. If anyone out there is having trouble adding a combo box to ......

After using LLBLGen Pro on a couple of new applications this month, I am very impressed and here's why: Stored Procedures - Please, they are so 1999. I know, you can still call 'em if needed but so far, I haven't needed one for any reason. If you're a programmer who is used to sending a DBA request and waiting an eternity for it to be completed, convince ......

Gotta get this one off my chest: Using a custom collection that was created by LLBLGenPro. Why is it that I can databind (OK, this is something I rarely do but in this case, it's the right call) a collection of objects to a DataGrid but if I don't set the datamember property I simply cannot "hide" a column on the control? I don't have anything against ......
