Trip to Microsoft

I got a chance to visit Microsoft in its Seattle headquarters. so a few notes to follow.

But first thing first: Airline travel sucks, especially domestic airline travel. Just when I thought its impossible to cramp more seats onboard an airplain, Continental Airlines proved me wrong. I trully felt like a sardine for a bit.

Well enought complaining. I got a chance to finish some functionality in the Querty - Query Analyzer Alternative. New functionality includes: OleDB connectivity option, Copy from grid, more UI enhancements, and some bug fixes. I trying to use Querty as much as I can internally and future set is prioritised based on my need. The next to come is probably Find/Replace functionality.

It really looks close to be able to merge the code with the Query ExPlus as a version 2 of the trunk. Check out the download, any feedback is appreciated.

I am really, really impressed with the foldershare software. It does exactly what I need it to do - synchronizes folder(s) between two computers across Internet. It does it well. It doesn't ask too many questions, but is not completely dumbed down. And it has some features that I didn't expect - ability to download files from my remote computer without having to install folder share on my local machine. I have a feeling everyone will need to use a software like it sooner or later. Bookmark the link so you don't forget: 5 stars!!!

After downloading Query Express, I got in touch with the developer, Joseph Albahari, and asked him to put the project on SourseForge. A few more emails later regarding the Licensing (Source Forge does not support permissive free license), and a few days later, the Query ExPlus was born. Check it out at
