I am trying to concentrate a bit more on publishing SQL Server related material both on my website
and on the simpletalk site. I've recently published an article on identity columns there
Also a new blog on Simple Talk at
It's what made me create this.
I'm in the process of writing an article on creating a .net application that is controlled via data (no more coding as long as the extra functionality is within the framework). This is surprisingly simple to write. I'm hoping to give a C#.net and VB.net version.
The other task is to re-establish the forum on my website. I had to take it down after it got hacked in a particularly nasty way. I should have taken more notice ofthe Snitz vulnerability fixes. Sorry if anyone got hit by it.
Oh - and need to link this from my website.
This is turning into a todo list.
So while I'm here - A long time ago I wrote an admin system for my brothers company. V1 VB and access. V2 VB and SQL Server.
The front end now needs to be rewritten in .net.
He also says the wireless network I set up has stoped working (remember to check if the access point is still plugged in).
Oh and while I'm there I can build a web site for the company. Bet it's not as simple as saving some pages from word to html.
At some point I'm going to have to start charging for all this. It's not as if I don't have more than enough paid work to do.
