VSLive 2008, Day three

by Terry 5/14/2008 8:11:00 AM

I am frustrated with the on-site wireless connectivity. I seem to have said that before. The Lowes Pacifica Resort got it mostly working yesterday, but today it is unavailable again. It is annoying because I am trying to stay in touch with work and I want to avoid the $11 daily connection charges for my room. After all, I paid the disturbingly costly conference fee which is supposed to include high-speed wireless. As I write this I see the connections have all come back. If this gets posted you can assume it is live once again.

I am following the SQL Server tracks this morning. I make good use of SQL Server. I am less familiar with Oracle, but can use it well enough, but working in a largely Windows environment, Windows systems seem to work better with SQL Server. For the technology choice I had with the project I support at work, I made use of SQL Server and SQLXML for IIS. I have isolated and disconnected systems to support, so the XML feeds are easily saved to a file system and can be copied into disconnected networks. You can interpret that as a form of sneaker-net. In some cases, the data can go in on DVD, but only leaves as incinerated dust.
