Aptana - The Web IDE

I came across this "little" tool today via Mike Gunderloy's The Daily Grind.  Tried it out. LOVE IT.  My JavaScript development from now one is only in Aptana IDE.

More on Flat File Bulk Import methods speed comparison in SQL Server 2005

Well i've done some more testing of bulk import methods i described in my previous post. The difference between previsous tests and these tests are these: 1. Database recovery model was set to Bulk logged. (This improved performance by 2-3 seconds for each method) 2. I tried BULK INSERT and BCP with and without TABLOCK option. 3. I also measured general processor utilization and RAM. IO reads and writes were similar in all methods. everything else was the same. Method ...

Flat File Bulk Import methods speed comparison in SQL Server 2005

In a previous post I explained where an SSIS FastParse option can be found when importing data from Flat files. I finally had some time to explore all four of SQL Server 2005 Bulk import utilities. Those are: 1. BCP 2. Bulk Insert 3. OpenRowset with BULK option 4. SQL Server Integration Services - SSIS I ran each bulk import option 12 times, disregarded best and worst time and averaged the remaining ten times. Results are: 1. ...

Copy Source As Html (CSAH)

I've come across Tod Hiliton's blog via Jason Haley's Interesting finds and there i found this great little add-in for VS2005.

Sorter class v2 - A generic comparer/sorter class

In my previous post i showed how a generic comparer class in .net C# 2.0 can be made with the use of reflection. This is the version 2. Faster, preetier, better. :)) It uses IL code generation in runtime with the use of a new .Net 2.0 class DynamicMethod. More here.
