SQL Server demo and a few tutorials

Microsoft’s SQL Server 2000 has a 120-day evaluation version available. And, for testing/development purposes, MSDE, costing, oh, nothing, works just like SQL Server (but you’ll need to install GUI admin tools from SQL Server, though).

And in case you’re wondering what to do or where to start with SQL Server 2000, Sitepoint has a nice friendly introductory tutorial.

More Sitepoint articles of interest: separating backends, frontends and menus; do you need meta tags; Fireworks for concurrent gif and Flash animation.

  • Now here is an excellent article on linguistic blunders in Titanic.


Dustbuster, Freewire, and attack-resistant trust-metrics

DustBuster is a tiny piece of software that cleans up unnecessary temp files. Only problem is that it’s incompatible with HP’s DLA and Real's RealONE. All the info given is that users with incompatible software should not use DustBuster. Nothing is said about what would happen were I to ignore their warning and use the software anyway.

Freewire is based on Limewire’s open source technology.

Oh, and both of those software links are from Kenradio’s daily software picks.

I can't believe I've never read First Monday!

This guy’s doing his Ph. D. on attack-resitant “trust metrics” (think Advogato, Google’s PageRank) or something like that. Cool.
