There Will Be Code
Inspired via the Monkey. His Kung Fu is strong. Ladies and Gentlemen if I say I am a SOFTWARE ARCHITECT you will agree with me. And I wish to speak to you today about DEVELOPING SOFTWARE. There are those who will say they can craft you an application, and that may VERY WELL be TRUE. But can they get you to ZERO BUG BOUNCE? Can they craft a decent USER INTERFACE. Can they craft a decent CONFIGURATION MANAGER? Will they rely on a creaky THREE-TIER ARCHITECTURE or have they mastered FIVE? It is these ......

SQL Query Performance And Data Types
Bruce Johnson of Object Sharp writes about a puzzling performance issue that took a little head-scratching to solve. In the end it came down to a data type mismatch between the parameter variable and the field definition. The parameter was nvarchar(40) and the field was defined as char(36). SQL was converting the field values to nvarchar(40) instead of converting the single parameter value to char(36). It makes sense that it would convert the char(36) to nvarchar(40) because converting the other ......

Help A Brother Out...
...or in as the case may be. Ok, so you're a twenty-five year old virgin and a little hottie you know says that if you can get 5 million hits on a website in 30 days, she'll help you out. He's more than halfway there with half the month to go. Check out his site and help this unfortunate soul. All he needs are hits. You don't have to do anything but hit it so that he can “hit it“. DaveJust because I can...(and he can too if you help him out) ......

WiFi Train Blogger
Ok so it cost me about 10 bucks to make this post but I'm doing it from a VIA Rail train in the middle of nowhere. (Brampton, ON) [grin] How frackin' cool is that?!? Actually, the cost isn't all that bad. The 10 bucks is for a 24 hour period during which I can surf to my heart's content. The train ride from Toronto to Kitchener is only an hour and a half, but if I wanted to, I could hang around the train station looking at pr0n and making people feel uncomfortable. I don't have to go into the Big ......

Now THAT'S Funny!
A poster on Slashdot was worried about the fact (?) that companies don't hire older programmers. He's 27. That's not the funny bit though. It triggered the following comments as follow-up: <snip> by Anonymous Coward on Wednesday March 02, @05:24PM (#11828402) This is news to me since I'm a programmer in my 50's and considered a youngster on my project. So as an insider, when is Duke Nukem Forever going to ship? </snip> ROTFL! DaveJust because I can... ......

Programmer Humour or The Story of Mini and Micro
No idea who the author is, but it's pretty funny! Micro was a real-time operator and dedicated multi-user. His broadband protocol made it easy for him to interface with numerous input/output devices, even if it meant time-sharing. One evening he arrived home just as the Sun was crashing, and had parked his Motorola 68040 in the main drive (he had missed the 5100 bus that morning), when he noticed an elegant piece of liveware admiring the daisy wheels in his garden. He thought to himself, "She looks ......

GPS Technology Gone Wrong
Or are we too quick to blame GPS and the mapping service? Blindly following the path the computer has laid before you is not entirely a wise thing to do. This is proved true by a couple on holiday in New Zealand when the GPS system in their rental car led them on a 10 hour journey through a mountain pass barely suitable for goats. Rainbow Station manager David McEwen said the road could best be described as "a shingle goat track". "To say they're following their GPS quite frankly doesn't wash with ......
