Posted 4 Dec 2011SSD's would be a good option but even a 120GB capacity drive is quite expensive, I am sure there are still some HDD's around at a decent price. The portability issue of a desktop/laptop doesn't bother me much as I am just looking for a good configuration that fits my price range. Haha yes I did mean ordering parts and putting it together and not manufacturing my own computer, I guess you missed this part
QuoteI don't mind ordering parts from Newegg/TigerDirect and assembling a PC together, I just want to get the best value for money.
So far the XPS 17 is looking like the way to go.
Posted 4 Dec 2011You seem to know the general bits and pieces of the hardware you want, it shouldn't be too bad to jump that over at bestbuy (or what ever local bigbox store) and fit something to that need!
Thanks for the response modi, I went to Bestbuy although just to look at their laptops and I was impressed with the size of the Dell Inspiron 17 inch, it wasn't too heavy. Which made me think the XPS 17 wouldn't be a bad option, just I would have to wait for a good deal on it. On the flipside I don't mind ordering parts from Newegg/TigerDirect and assembling a PC together, I just want to get the best value for money. As you said I have a general idea, but I think I am lost with all the options out there. What processor & graphics card would you guys recommend?
Posted 26 Jul 2011Ok that makes sense now, why the int numbers in the case of +1 were working but not the +0.5, which confused me. I guess I'll just add the decimal value outside the DateDiff function & that should work, something along the lines of
DATEDIFF (d, StartDate, EndDate)+ (0.5) - (select DT from TableB)
Or is there a better way to approach this.
Thanks for the input. Appreciate it
Posted 26 Jul 2011I am trying to make it if the case is 0.5 then do the datediff & if the datediff is 0 or 1 then add 0.5 to it. So it would be 0.5 or 1.5. That's the outcome I am looking for from the CASE.
Posted 8 Jul 2011Thanks for all your replies guys. I actually happened to borrow a few books from my friends, such as C# 3.0 A Beginner's Guide, Professional C# 4.0 & .NET 4, Wrox Beginning C# 3.0 An Introduction To Object Oriented Programming, Beginning C# 2005 Databases. For SQL, I just got the SQL Bible, before I started an internship I read the SQL 2005 for Dummies & got a fair understanding of the syntax although it didn't go deep in depth with Stored Procedure Variables, Joins & Temp tables which would have been really helpful. I have heard good things about C# 4.0 In A Nutshell too, I'll see if any of my friends have that book. These are a lot of books, quite overwhelming actually . Although I am determined to become a good programmer & become real comfortable with C#. Which book do you guys recommend that I start with?
Any info on classes taught by instructors over webcasts? My aim is to combine the book knowledge with real applications & develop myself further, I feel this is the only way I will be able to make any progress with C# & SQL
