Database Design Article on Developer.com and back from vacation
While I was all over the east coast for vacation it looks like my article on database design for breadcrumb link data got posted on Developer.com. I did all of the graphics for the article, which I hope add to the content in terms of making it understandable.
In unrelated news, I arrived home after being gone for 12 days. My wife and I toured Washington D.C., New York City, Newport, Rhode Island (for the Tennis Hall of Fame induction ceremony and tournament semi-finals) and Boston. We saw the DC Nationals and Yankees play in their respective home stadiums and I must say I had quite a lot of fun. We wanted to see a game at Fenway really bad but the Red Sox weren't playing while we were there because of the All-Star break. We did get to see Fenway and the green monster, though.
Newport, RI was probably the biggest surprise of the trip to me. It's an absolutely gorgeous area right on the Atlantic Ocean. The Tennis Hall of Fame and other historical significance make it a tourist town in a way but it wasn't too crowded while we were there. The seafood there is killer, as it probably is in any town that sits right on the ocean. Definitely a town I would recommend for weekend getaways or even for a week of vacation. Just make sure you can get a deal on a room there. Most rooms within Newport run ~$200/per night or higher from May through October.
