Excellent I'd say as they fixed a lot of the things that were wrong with Beta 2. As far as I've observed, the upgrade is only installed if you have IE8 Beta 2.Ian2 said:mikexkearney said:*snip*
Sounds quite good to me.

It's one of many improvements slated -- the system is 20+ years old and dates back to a green-screen system. It was ported to C# under massive (customer induced) time pressure so the dev team at the time (before I joined) just blasted through with a direct port without any restructuring. There are a lot of 'quirks' that have never been addressed : too much time spent implementing customer changes to spend any time restructuring -- typical catch-22 as restructuring would make the day-to-day coding faster.
Dev team? What dev team? We are a VERY small business (three people) and the company is about 6 months old so we are our own dev team, IT, and everything else...
Given my poor programming skills, I think at first the database is going to be an Access database with about 20 parts or so (speed is not an issue at the moment). My concern is setting up a numbering/naming system that will allow us to grow and eventually port the system in the near future to something more powerful. The goal is that 20 years from now we are not in your situation.
Based on your post, I get that it is easier to use letters than numbers and I see no problem with that, but they will probably be acronyms because of space constraints.
Thank you all for your feedback, it was very instructive.
I would like to set up a database with all products and parts that my company makes. At the moment we use descriptive names to distinguish products and parts, but we are reaching the stage where we need to create a numbering system.
I was thinking about a number composed of a code for the category, one for the product/part, one for the model, and one for the revision. The final thing would look something like this: CCC-PPP-MMM-VVV or 001-023-002-A02.
What do you think of this system? How would you go about it? How about using dashes and letters? How about only numbers? What works best on a database? How about docs and docs versions?
Thank you for your suggestions.
Forget the Flash sillyness, is Microsoft providing free movies over the internet? My German is really bad, so I could have misunderstood some of the content and some of the content can be streamed only from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, but if this is true, this is going to be huge.
The fact that the darn thing does not "remember" the last locale you set annoys me a lot too. I like Live Search and I think it is an excellent alternative to Google. I do live in France at the moment, but I prefer doing most of my searches in EN-US simply because there are more results in English for the topics I research. A workaround is to save Live search as your homepage with the market set to en-us (http://www.live.com/?scope=web&mkt=en-US). This way, every time you open a new browser you are reset to the locale you prefer and not the one based on the physical location of your IP.fabian said:joechung said:*snip*
Mmm I did not buy anything yet (I stopped at checkout), but apparently you can ship goods to other european countries from the UK store (i.e. you can selecto other countries). I'd like to see some harware on it though. If this is just the beginning, then is looks good.Dovella said:giovanni said:*snip*
Thanks Androidi, I have tried with different browsers and the problem is still there (last night I realized it happens also when scrolling PDF files with lots of figures). I also tried with 1 core only, but that only made the system a lot slower... I tried unchecking everything but the audio drivers but no solution either... I am starting to get annoyed, but everything else works like a breeze so I think I will keep it this way until I have some spare time to try a fresh install. Thanksandroidi said:giovanni said:*snip*
