    Nope - I was alphabetizing the list at the same time you guys were making edits, so when I hit submit it overwrote them


    Oh ya bugga! I was just putting the server ones in time order Big Smile

    Btw, somebody smarter than me should probably link to the list from the wiki homepage, no?

    Glad I could help kick this off guys. To be honest, I was in a pissy mood, felt like just doing something mind-numbing. The above list took me about 20 minutes of research, typing and formatting. Sorry it wasn't perfect and alphabetical and such... Just figure it'd be a good starting point Smiley

    update: Also, I've been wanting to put some time into the wiki since it was launched, just never had time or the inkling to do so. Now I don't feel so guilty anymore Wink

    It's the only time I've contributed anything of consequence to the wiki. I don't really feel all that guilty Tongue Out

    Besides, there's like 200 other ones out there. Still lots of work to do Wink

    Perhaps a topic should be locked in the Wiki while someone else is editing it and unlock it after a set time - for those editing, you could use AJAX to make sure it is still locked. And/or maybe a diff/merge feature.

    FlexWiki normally uses an optimistic locking scheme - it doesn't claim an exclusive lock when you edit, but when you hit "save" it checks to see if anyone has edited the same page since you started, and if so it forces you to do a (manual) merge.

    Not sure why this isn't happening on the Channel 9 wiki. Possibly that feature was disabled to cope with the load?

    In the meantime we can do manual workarounds by looking at the version histories. Thankfully this is the only page I've seen this happen to in the entire history of the wiki Smiley

    Is the wiki being ran off file system or sql? multiple machine problems perhaps?

    I have to say I like the granularity of wikipedia where you can edit a small section.

    You wrote "Yukon = SQL Server 2005 scripting and automation environment for Windows". SQL Server 2005 is not a "scripting and automation environment", it's a database server. For more informations, see:
