The CORE
No. Not that one. Not that one either. I’m actually talking about the CorFlags section in the header of a portable executable image. Wil Peck observed the following error when trying to use the Microsoft Jet OLEDB provider on an x64 machine: The 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' provider is not registered on the local machine The simple solution, as Wil points out, is to change the target of your project to x86 rather than Any CPU so that your build will produce a 32 bit executable. If you have a solution ......

Red Gate SQL Dependency Tracker 2
In a word – wonderful. I’m doing some work on a project where somebody had a bit of a fetish for nested views. I’m not talking about one view inside another. I’m talking about one view that joins a couple of other views that each join to other views as well. I needed to add a value to the output of the outer-most view and before I added ~another~ join I wanted to know if the table in question was already joined in one of the nested views. Drilling down into them would have taken time. I remembered ......

Windows Live Writer
Ok, now that's cool. I've been meaning to try out Windows Live Writer for making blog posts because one of the things that stops me from posting very much is that it's a bit of a pain. The editors that are embedded in blog software such as Subtext, a fork of the popular .Text software, are surprisingly good but can only take you so far. Things like inserting a picture can be a real pain and I always find myself switching to the source view to tweak things here and there. I fired up the program after ......

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 ......

Cross of Valour - Constable Chris Garret
Chris Garret was murdered in the line of duty in 2004. He was nominated for the Cross of Valour but denied it because the trial of his killer held up the application until the 2-yr time limit lapsed. http://www.nationalpost.com... That such a callous and automatous application of the rules is even possible leaves me dumbstruck. There is an online petition to correct this: http://www.petitiononline.c... Please take a moment to sign. Dave Just because I ......

In Memorium - Beloved TingTing - 2002 to 2007
Monday morning at approximately 5:00 AM our beloved cat TingTing was snatched away by a coyote right in our own back yard and literally at the feet of my wife. TingTing was an indoor cat but was not declawed and was in the habit of having a morning romp in the back yard. She never strayed away from the property into the open field behind our home. We have a door to the back yard from our Master Bedroom and shortly after being let out there was a considerable commotion at our bedroom window. It was ......

SSIS Lookup Transformation Case Sensitivity
Hey there, In one of my data loads I have NULLs creeping into a foreign key column. I am looking up a domain name and getting an integer Id number back. The column is populated during the load by a Lookup Transformation in SSIS. A previous step in the process populates the lookup table with any values that don’t exist so it should be impossible for the subsequent lookups to fail. These null values had only recently appeared and coincided with some data back-filling we were doing. First issue: I had ......
