Parallel Computing - NY Times Article and the .NET Parallel Extensions.
A timely article appeared in the NY Times today (link) regarding Parallel computing as the next key factor in keeping up with the ever demanding needs of getting things done faster. As the article points out, the single CPU processor can't address our needs for faster computational capability without literally burning up or melting. I've seen this personally with Vista and the stressing of the GPU on some older notebooks. So, what's the solution, well, it's been around for decades, it's just now ......

Verizon FIOS and Search Jacking - and a Verizon Opt-out.
Well, Verizon seems to be high jacking the search part of my web experience. And this is not just failed DNS lookup - these are 404 errors (not found) as well. Which to me is really going to screw up support for all. I can see my 77 year Old Mother complaining that some web site that I know exists seems be lost in the ether when the "Can find - did you mean" crappy Yahoo search results comes back. Really BAD Verizon - Wake UP!!!! You can work-around it by changing the auto-assigned DNS servers in ......

Query SQL (or any LINQ Provider) Using LINQPad...

A few bonus items included: 1. provides a view of both the resulting SQL and Lambda expressions used in the query. 2. Provides SQL execution as well 3. A whole bunch ......

Windows Server 2008 RC1 and SharePoint

If you're installing Windows Server 2008 RC1 and expected to use WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007 you'll need to wait until 12/11/2007...

It's blocked from running - I read somewhere it's due (WSS & MOSS SP1) December 11, 2007.

SharePoint Development Tools are Severely Lacking
One thing I can say about SharePoint (WSS 3.0 & MOSS 2007)development is it sucks. The tools are weak from creating to debugging. Something that literally took about 15 minutes in straight ASP.NET took 3+ hours yesterday. So, I'm rethinking my perspective on SharePoint as an Application Platform when the applications are more complex than just managing lists or data direct in SharePoint, or Workflow involving SharePoint objects such as Lists, Documents, etc. I'm coming away from this thinking ......
