From the Editor's Desk...

Hinky Pinky  -  Today I just want to get you thinking. While it may not make you write better code, it will keep you busy if you give it a try.

Other Parallel Tools  -  Today Damian writes in with a number of different techniques to take advantage of parallel capabilities.

How is OData Doing?  -  OData came on the scene not too long ago. What a great idea. Is it catching on? Will adoption continue to grow?

Correctly Configuring Parallelism  -  Today we are reminded that Parallelism is not just a custom software problem, but is often configurable in packaged software too, such as SQL Server. Even then it is important to get your parallelism configured correctly.

Parallel Isn't Always the Best  -  I like the ease of writing multi-threaded code as it is enabled in Dot Net. Perhaps, because they have made it so easy, you may find you use it in places where it actually slows down your code execution.

Best Practices Instead of Facts  -  We hesitate to come up with requirements for how to install or write software. Instead we have a lot of Best Practices addressing general situations. Are there really so few absolutes?

Facts vs. Theorems  -  Because software development involves computers there is little room for something that is not exact. What happens when the things you believe about the process of software development can not be proven as a fact?

Protecting Your Data  -  How important is your data? What if it is lost, misused, inaccurate or stolen? How important is it to protect from all these kinds of loss?

Using params in a C# Method  -  Did you ever want to have parameters you could provide to a method where you didn't know the type or number that were needed. Maybe you didn't want to provide any sometimes. Using the params keyword may work for you.
