It's pretty lonely over there (http://preview.channel9.msdn.com). Please create new threads there and really use the site - it's the future.
Needs the coffee house to update quicker between the live site and the preview site.... they delay is far to long.
the new c9 seems slow as well (I'm in the UK).
I thought the vide was going to be posted on Monday as well? Is not the case? I want to Play with the C9 and see how have baked it ....

The effect is negligible. an int is 32 bits, a datetime is 64 bits. On an x64 DBMS the int would be padded out to 64-bits to fit into a word size, so it's possible that the overhead is with using an int rather than a 64-bit type
thanks for your comments.....
Never use text for storing dates, if you do run into a problem where the MinValue for the built-in date/time value is too high, then store it as a 64-bit unsigned integer with the epoch set far enough in the past.
not sure if I explained myself. He acutally wants to type in "Pre 1960's" ... I don't reall see what choice I have.
