Any interest in continue the SharpHSql project?

I have kind of abandoned this little and nice project, but I feel bad....  I still resist to give up on this and for that reason I'm trying to get two things from you guys:

  1. Comments saying that you would like the project to be continued or not.
  2. Maybe some helping hand here in fixing and changing the things that need to be redesigned or improved.

 Well, I will be waiting your response.....

Thanks in advance!

Retina.NET project moved to CodePlex

As you probably know the GotDotNet site is being phased out in favor of the new CodePlex, so I have moved the Retina.NET project to http://www.codeplex.com/retina

I have uploaded the last stable sources and binaries (v1.0.8.0) and sources to the CodePlex TFS servers for the latest (still incomplete) Retina.NET 2.0. I'm still trying to find some time to finish the big refactor to implement generic methods and collections in all Retina.NET classes, but that task proven to be more difficult than I have foreseen.

Feel free to download the sources, binaries or whatever you find in the site, and if you have the time to contribute with something that would be more than welcome.

Thanks!

Vista RTM: so far, so good

A couple of months ago I upgraded my home PC with the RTM version of Windows Vista Ultimate. I performed a clean install because the previous RC2 started to degrade and turned out to be a faulty disk drive. I have a SATA Raid controller on my motherboard and I was using a stripe-set volume configuration with two identical 80GB SATA drives, but one of them failed and I had to undo the RAID and install the new Vista using only one disk.

After that, I have to say that my new Vista setup is running very smoothly. My machine is an old P4C 2.4Ghz with 2GB DDR RAM in dual channel configuration, at the time I build this baby it was the top of the line....  and still have some punch....

The only thing I deeply regret is the fact I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback joystick with the old DB15 joystick connector and it doesn't work anymore in Vista. I miss my force feedback joystick very much.....   support for old DB15 devices has been removed from Vista in favor of newer USB devices.....   I think that's too bad!

Appart from that, I'm very pleased with Vista, and when I get my new notebook I will install Vista on it with no doubt.

See U!
