It sounds and looks like both Intel and AMD will be shipping dual core CPUs this year.
While dual cores will not make things run twice as fast, it will be a nice new feature to have. I am sure that we will see some interesting bugs from products that were designed and tested on single processor systems.
Have you ever wanted to just perform an operation with MySql and continue
on? If so, you can queue inserts in MySql using the "INSERT DELAYED"
command. INSERT DELAYED queues up a set of inserts and the inserts are
written all at once. This makes the option good for logging. The
inserts are queued in memory, so a failure in the MySql daemon will result in
the lose of any unwritten inserts. A word of warning, INSERT DELAYED is
Sql Server 2005 will have a feature called Service Broker which will have
similar functionaly. If you need to queue commands right now, another
option is to use the Microsoft Message Queue, aka MSMQ.

I remember a long time ago having problems with trying to run a query in Sql Server 2k FTS where I had something like:
SELECT COL1, COL2, COL3 FROM TABLE WHERE CONTAINS(COL1, 'TERM*')
I wanted the rows where a word came back that started with TERM. I never ever could get back what I wanted. In reading the documentation for Sql Server 2005 Full Text Search, it looks like I should have queried something like:
SELECT COL1, COL2, COL3 FROM TABLE WHERE CONTAINS(COL1, '"TERM*"')
Note the double quotes.
According to News.com, there will be another developer preview version of Longhorn in April at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference.

Wow, this was a total surprise to read this morning. I have listened to what Richard has had to say for a number of years (at least seven years, and I have never met him). His statements and principles have been treated with great respect by the people that I work with. I have just gotten done reading his article about why he is quitting working with .NET. I do not really understand his reasons beyond a frustration with VB.NET, the .NET changes to Longhorn, and a belief that Microsoft has lost confidence in .NET. I am sorry to hear that he is leaving the .NET community. I wish he would not leave. His insight will be missed by myself and others. I wish him well going forward.

If you get the Error 1327 with a message about an invalid drive, check to see if the drive is available and if you have access to the drive. If you can't find the drive through "My Computer," check to see what your "My Documents" folder is mapped to.
Sorry that I have been away. I've just been really pre-occuppied. Its not every day that you are the lead story in the local newspaper and have been the lead story on two local TV news channels. WBIR's news story and WATE's news story. WATE's online story. After you read the online story and perhaps watch the local stories from the other links, you'll know why I haven't been posting much. This whole school board land issue has taken a lot of air out of my sails as far as posting tidbits of information.
I'm hoping to get finished with my last chapter for the whidbey / yukon book by the end of the month and then have more time.
