I have a firewire device that I want to be able to share between two computers (without having to unplug it every single time). The firewire device is an audio interface that's physically mounted to my desk in a rack. Is there a switch of some kind that would allow me to hook up one device to two host computers? Anyone seen anything like this? Thanks ......

Merry Christmas To Me... We finally took the plunge and bought a MacPro. It's the slimmed down model, but I plan to add a bunch of memory. I'll be installing Server 2003 on Boot Camp tomorrow. See how that goes. I've been hearing that Boot Camp is running Windows much faster than any PC... We'll see ......

SQL Reporting Services has a really annoying "feature" that essentially removes all leading spaces from a field, when rendering a report to the ReportViewer control. You cannot use  , You cannot use space(5), etc. But, if you need to do leading spaces, you can set a formula in the padding field of the cell. Fantastic ......

I have been recently (and unfortunately) forced to go to IE7 by my computer. The details behind it are not important to this post, as I can do most of the things I need to in FF anyway (and much prefer it). I prefer IE6 to IE7. After having been in IE7 for a week now, there is one incredibly irritating "feature." Links that open in new windows don't ......

Does this ever happen to you? I was just a few minutes ago, working through a problem with sorting custom classes. I know that I did this before, but couldn't remember what I did. So, I popped a few search terms into Google, and came across a potential solution. Then I looked a little more carefully at the blog, and realized that the solution I found ......

50% of my job is Web Development. The other 50% is managing a 2GB SQL database and web app (with about 1500 users). Part of that 50% is writing SQL Reporting reports. Up until the other day, I was having my users log into the web interface of S/RS and get their reports that way. I was talking to some other developers who use the same system, and they ......

So, I wrote a new web service in a .NET 2.0 app today. Went to fire it up, and I got a wierd message that I had never seen before. I found a few references to this on the web, but they all dealt with 1.1 stuff. Then, I went hunting around my web.config to see if there was some way it was trying to emulate 1.1. I ran across this line that I put in when ......

For more than 5 years now, Apple has used buzzwords like "stylish", "sleek", "elegant" to stress the design of their products. I think that in the early 00's they realized that not only are people looking for functional stuff, they're looking for sexy stuff. And, for the average user of their stuff, being sexy was much more important than being functional. ......

I was one of the ones who jumped on the AJAX bandwagon pretty quickly. I've built several private apps using AJAX, and really like it. I like the fact that the web becomes more "rich," and more closely resembles forms in functionality. The gains are enormous. That having been said, I found myself asking the question: Is it worth it? I've found (so far) ......

So, I have a question for all you SQL Reporting geeks out there.

Is it better to do filters server-side (ie. In a Stored Procedure), or report side. 

Any thoughts / suggestions...

I'm not too big of a fan of Reality shows. My wife got in to Beauty and the Geek on the CW network. The past few weeks I've been watching it with her. So, tonight was the finale. The final four players, two teams of Megan and Scooter, and Nate and Cecille, put themselves at the mercy of the eliminated players, to determine the winner. Since the beginning ......

Just ran across this travel site that I'd not heard of before.

It's got some sweet AJAX action going on.
