I was digging around with Anakrino after I read that calling Dispose on a connection removes the object from the connection pool. From what I can tell, they are mistaken (of course it is 2:30am, hey prove me wrong if you are reading this. hello, is this thing on???). Anyways, I thought it was funny that SqlTransaction has a "Zombie" method that nulls itself off. All I could think about was SET ISOLATION LEVEL NEED BRAAAAINS. I'm drunk again by the way.
I'm also trying to put together some scripts to get my install for my classes next week up and running. I think I've got them done, so hopefully I can load up nine machines with Windows XP, SQL Server, VS.NET and the course materials in under three hours to get to easter dinner on time. Eeek.
I'm teaching an accelerated VB.NET course, basically three classes over a two week period. It is the VB6 to VB.NET class combined with an ASP.NET class and an ADO.NET class. TREEEmendous stuff here. Plus it comes with e-learners for a COM+ course, an XML Web Service course and one on programming the .NET framework. Good times. In classes like the VB6 to VB.NET class, I always get behind showing stuff in ADO.NET and ASP.NET way outside the scope of the class, and then feeling guilty about having to move on with the topic at hand and basically make a sales pitch for another course or a book. Now, the only thing I feel guilty about not coving completely in class is included with the materials. I'm pretty stoked about teaching this class if you can't tell.
