Converting Sql.LINQ.Binary to Byte()
Just a real short entry today. I had some trouble with this one - took me a little bit to figure out so I figured I would post a quick note about it. Mostly to remind myself how I did it next time I need to.
DLINQ + Solving the Many to Many problem
A while back, Scott Guthrie posted in the comments, that LINQ didn't support, or had trouble with Many to Many relationships. I'm not sure if the code-base has changed, or I haven't considered a full scope, but I've managed to get it to work, and it's slick! I'll jump straight to the magic here.
Thoughts from the flip side
I'm a little bit off topic this evening, but after all, it's thanksgiving weekend, I think I'm still burping turkey on Sunday night, and I guarantee I'll wage a war worthy of a movie called 400 trying to put my pants on tomorrow morning for work. Just no give in dress slacks, did polyester stretch? I just finished watching 60 minutes, first I'd like to say: I felt the High Tech - Heist article was grossly misrepresented. Why is it, that you can take any highly intelligent reporter, ask them to talk about technology, and they turn into blithering idiots. If I had to listen to her say "The WPA Code" one more time, I was going to trip my TV off it's stand and launch it.
Conference Internet is not an option!
This subject is sure to spawn hate mail abound. I'm sure that there's an entire camp that will tell me that I'm at a conference or convention, for the conventions subject material - and to get the most out of it, I should leave work, family, friends, interests...<put your item here> behind. You see, I already know what you're going to say, so save it. I'm attending DevConnections - In Las Vegas. With the MVP Discount I believe it cost me somewhere around 1100 dollars to be here and attend sessions. Another 500+ for my hotel room for a week, meals, plane tickets, not to mention a week of work that continues to go on back at the office.
Leaving...on a jet plane
A little John Denver anyone? I'm sitting here in the Denver Airport thinking that thus far, my luck has been really good. No weather issues, no flight problems - Even a situation that would normally spell disaster for the wayward traveler was victoriously avoided somehow.
