  • CSS and JavaScript books

    Thanks! Added to shopping list!

  • CSS and JavaScript books

    I have recently been assigned to quite a big ASP.Net web project at work and we are in the design and spec phase of the project.

    Since I'm more of a widnows client dev my knowledge of both CSS and JavaScript have been to a certain level, enough to be able to create basic css style sheets and very basic javascript.

    I was hoping you guys could help suggest some good books on CSS and javascript... so far i found these two on amazon:

    JavaScript: The definitive guide (http://www.amazon.com/JavaScript-Definitive-Guide-David-Flanagan/dp/0596101996/ref=rsl_mainw_dpl?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER)

    CSS: The definitive guide (http://www.amazon.com/CSS-Definitive-Guide-Eric-Meyer/dp/0596527330/ref=rsl_mainw_dpl?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER)

    Any other books you guys would recommend? Mainly looking for Intermediate to Advanced level books...

    TIA

  • iPhones

    Yes

  • EventArgs on Triggers?

    You could use the inserted table in your trigger to get the values that were inserted in the row.

    Example:

    Assuming you have a table with the following columns:
     ID[int], EmailAddress [varchar(2000)], EmailCount [int]

    The trigger:

    CREATE TRIGGER SampleTrigger
    ON MyTable
    AFTER INSERT
    AS

    DECLARE @ID int
    DECLARE @MessageCount int
    DECLARE @EmailAddress varchar(2000)

    SELECT
        @ID = ID,
        @EmailAddress = EmailAddress
    FROM
        inserted

    SELECT @MessageCount = COUNT ('C') FROM Messages WHERE EmailAddress = @EmailAddress

    IF (@MessageCount > 10)
    BEGIN
        -- Modify email and send message
    ELSE
    BEGIN
        -- Fallback do something else
    END

    at least we can be happy that all the apple zealots who bought one immediately paid it 200$ more

    *snicker* A $200 fanboi tax


    I don't think I have ever been put into the Apple fanboy category since I've hated and resisted buying any apple products till the iPhone, and yet I can't come up with any reason to refute that statement. I definitely am a fan of at least one of Apple's products... the iPhone. (The iPhone being the one and only device from Apple I've ever owned)

    Just to be clear though, I don't regret getting the iPhone. In fact I still hold on the opinion that the iPhone is one the best phones I have ever owned. I have tried all sorts of smart phones, PDA's and even though the WinMo platform is really extensible I hated the experience and usability aspects of those devices.

    The only think I regret is trusting Apple not to do a price drop so soon and that too a $200 price drop. Its disgusting how Apple so smoothly decided to slash the prices on the iPhone without even an apology to all those early adopters that now feel like chumps. I guess I've learned my lesson to not be an early adopter to any of apple's stuf...

    I do have to give credit where credit's due though. The iPod-Touch just creamed the mp3 market. Its so sad that Zune never followed through on its promise. They had the WiFi there and if only they had delivered on the software side things would have been a lot different for Zune. I got my brother a Zune last year for his birthday and ever since was considering of getting one, all in the hopes that they'd come out with some firmware upgrade to make use of the WiFi functionality (don't even get me started on the stupid song sharing stuff... stupid is just the mildest word I can come up with).

    With all their talk on how they could do firmware updates and all added functionality would come from software, they never delivered. I used to try and sell Zune to a lot of my friends and colleagues as its UI was way better than the iPod, but now theres no arguing that the iPod-Touch has just buried Zune.

    Just sad with Microsoft's forte being software they could never deliver and Apple delivered... and a lot earlier...AGAIN!. I hope the Zune team has something up their sleeves to compete with the iPod-Touch or they might as well pack up... Game over.

    Robert McLaws has a really good article on how Zune can counter: Link, but if history is any measure it won't happen.

  • Selecting data from one SQLServer DB into another DB on same server

    Dr Herbie wrote:
    I have a database server with two databases : a live database and a test database.  The test database is essentially an old version of the live database.

    The live database has been updated with some live data on some records.  Only one column has been updated.

    I want to copy the new data into the test database, only updating the single updated field in the relevant rows.

    I can't remember the syntax for this, nor can I find an answer on Google (I must be using the wrong term for this or something).


    Any help?


    Herbie


    EDIT: I'm hoping for something like:

    UPDATE [Test].Table set field = (select field from [Live].Table where [Live].Table.Field = [Test].Table.Field)



    UPDATE
        [Test].dbo.[Table1]
    SET
        [Test].dbo.[Table1].field = P.field
    FROM
        [Production.dbo.[Table1] P
    WHERE
        [Test].dbo.[Table1].IDField = P.IDField  AND
        [Test].dbo.[Table1].field <> P.field

  • MSDN Server too busy

    I'm trying to access MSDN and keep getting the Server Too Busy message. Can anybody else confirm if MSDN is down?

    BTW: Using firefox... dunno if that makes a difference.

    Thanks.

    The .com boom led to a massive rise in the number of IT and programming contractors.

    No offense to the contractors, but most of the work they do just requires knowledge of programming and some past experience, there really isn't much CS involved. I really don't consider software eng. contracting an academically "challenging" career.


    That can be said for most non-contracting jobs too. Unless you are looking at R&D or high profile application development, most line of business applications aren't that "academically challenging".
