  • Computing Time Difference

    While Sql Server provides functions to manipulate datetime data types(DateDiff, DateAdd etc.) they don't have(as far as I know) functions to manipulate time. Very useful when computing time differences. In the past I had to manually datediff parts of the time(hh:mm:ss) which wasn't scalable especially...

  • aggressive applications and slickrun

    once in a while, i still experience slickrun battling with another window on which of them should be activated (this has been a long outstanding bug of slickrun). my usual workaround is to lock my system (Win+L) then unlock it. slickrun behaves as normal after this workaround.

  • Closing shortcuts

    if you're a keyboard junkie, you might have mistaken to close that Visual Studio Tool Window (resharper's find usage is a prime candidate) with an Alt+F4 keystroke and when you don't have any changes to save, your slow VS which took you almost a minute to load is now closed. Next time, just...

  • Sql Server Data Type Precedence : Redux

    Previously jokiz bloged about this one , I'd like to add further.

  • Getting rid of .svn folders

    I often copy several OSS projects that I have checked out from their public Subversion repository, back at home so that I have the "bleeding edge" source when working.

    Here are some tips on using Lutz Roeder's Reflector that some of you might not yet know. Enclose search parameters with quotes for exact match.
