Boot From VHD

This is really cool. Can't wait to try it: http://edge.technet.com/Med... Not sure whether this is an emulator or not. If it's not, then this will really help with mobility development. Microsoft could really use some help in that regard. [2010-02-01] After going through a bit of the tutorial, I'm fairly disappointed. If I have to make a different partition and load the vhd, then wouldn't it make more sense to make that partition and load my OS in there? This process better ......

Embarrassing Gaffe

I was pretty sure the application didn't have an orchestration, and kind of freaked out when the send ports do not have any filter on ReceivePortName.  It's definitely THE most embarrassing moment of my BizTalk life.

Check and double-check!

SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 BI

Just saw a presentation on SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 BI Integration. There are some cool stuff that will be out soon. The presentation focused on PowerPivot and Performance Point server. A end-business user can access her/his datasource, pull in some external data (like weather condition), and create a spreadsheet using PowerPivot. This spreadsheet, in addition to being hosted on SharePoint, can be incorporated through Performance Point by a SharePoint developer, and build a Cube in ......

BizTalk FILE adapter mask is a prefix

It seems like the file mask we can enter into the File Mask textbox in a BizTalk FILE port configuration is a prefix.  I entered a mask that is "fix_*.txt" and the port is picking up everything with that prefix.  I had quite a few files with .txt[datetimestamp] in the folder and everything was picked up, created quite a havoc.

Multiple Boot Manager options for windows 7

I was messing around with Win 7 installation on a computer while testing the RAID configuration. As a result, I ran the Win 7 install mutiple times. To my surprise, I now see multiple options at the Boot Manager screen for Windows 7. Have yet to figure out why. My other computer installation created a 100MB partition on the IDE drive before installing the Win 7 on the RAID. However, i don't see that partition in this computer, so I haven't figure out where the data is stored. Just found this post ......

Getting a little annoyed at a website

I may not be a lawyer, but definition and how to properly excute a plan are very important to me.

When you create a website and want to store something in a Config file, simply calling your class "ConfigFile" is NOT the way to do it.  This web projectI am looking at is so far down the wrong path that it needs a rebuild.

Installing XP with Visiontek Radeon HD 2400 Pro 512MB AGP

I bought this video card to work with Windows 7.  It works perfectly; couldn't be happier.

The problem starts when I had to install XP for some legacy application.  I tried installing different versions of XP (home, professional, media center), and each one hangs at the XP startup screen.

Workaround: I installed XP with the onboard video card first, change the screen resolution, then switch in the new video card, and voila.

SSIS: copying tasks between packages

Reminder:

Always turn logging on as the last step just before you are ready to do test runs.  The reason being if you need to copy any task between 2 packages and the source package has logging turned on, it will throw an error.
