Constantine - A Review (No Spoilers Here)

Url: http://constantinemovie.warnerbros.com/

I just got back from seeing Constantine.  The first movie I've went out to see on the opening weekend in quite a while.  Overall, it was a fun ride.  I do recommend it, but just don't expect a new "Matrix" or anything.  There are some theological inconsistencies, but in general great performances all around (even Reeves, but don't quote me on that).  Terrific visuals too.

Is Data Access Really This Hard?

I've been spending some time lately reviewing how companies are doing data access in .NET.  When I look at how most of them have crufted up solutions, I am amazed.  The model that Microsoft supports seems so obvious to me, but I am neck deep in it.  I'd like to hear from my readers their specific experience with creating data access in .NET; with an eye to why or why not use COM+ for transactions; Typed DataSet or DataReaders; Business Objects or Messages.  I am trying to understand where the community is.

Thanks in advance...

DataAdapters and Component Surfaces (or why I love using the toolset)

I always forget this blog this, but when I am doing a database project using Typed DataSets, I almost always use a Component Surface to build my DataAdapters interactively.  For example:

Here I add a component to my project:

Geek Dinner - A couple of useful links...

At the Atlanta Geek Dinner this evening we got talking about a whole boatload of interesting topics.  I promised that I would share a couple of interesting links.  The first is to a blog called "OldNewThing" from a Microsoftie who explains why old school Windows stuff works the way it does.  It's a must have every dev out there:

Anyone with a web enabled phone, I am trying to test how a calendar looks on phones but I only have so many.  If you could visit this page (http://wildermuth.com/test) and click on the hyperlink on whether you can see the calendar or not, I'd really appreicate it!
