Posted 27 Jul 2013No, second hand smoke isn't voluntary, unless you're plenty capable of, you know, not being near a smoker when they're smoking. That's why we have laws about that now.
Tell that to the children of smokers. They're generally exposed to it on a daily basis. I gather neither your mother nor father smoked/smokes? My parents did, and my father still does. Today I constantly find myself having to clear my throat, especially when I exercise. I can ignore it of course, and I'm only assuming the connection, but all I know is that I find it hard to breathe around second hand smoke, and I'd prefer it if my parents hadn't done that around me when I was a kid.

QuoteThe problem that your classes are not compiled, You'll solve this issue simply by going to the properties of any class in the App_Code folder and change it's 'Build Action' property from "Content" to "Compile"
This is the answer that I seem to come across over and over and over again, but it doesn't apply to web sites. Could the answer be to convert the web site to a web application? I'm hesitant here because I'd assume they'd mention it in the book I'm reading.
I also came across this:
QuoteIf your application is a Web Application project rather than a Web Site project, the code files should not be in the App_Code folder (stupid design, I know). Create a new folder called code or something and put them in there.
It caused me all sorts of problems when I upgraded a bunch of old .Net web sites to application projects.
This isn't really a solution but it received some upvotes on its site. He seems to be saying that this should work as long as you have a web site and not a web application. But again, it still doesn't work on my machine.
Posted 4 Jul 2013Did you get the paperback version? I find it's alright to read on a big enough screen with LockLizard's page layout set to 'facing', but I've been wondering whether I should invest in the paperback. I've read their C# book before (which was fantastic) and am hoping this one will live up to my expectations. My main issue at the moment seems to be to get the exercises working properly.
Posted 18 Jun 2013Perhaps you could be honest with them. Tell them what you wrote here, but mention that interviews make you nervous and that you have a hard time solving problems on the spot. I have no way of being certain about what the effects of that would be, but I imagine it'd vary from person to person. If I were the interviewer I'd be inclined to give you a chance, rather than to throw you out. As for the rest of your questions, that's really a personal matter. I'd start with some larger company first to gain more experience before I go and try to start something on my own.
Posted 5 Jun 2013Create a "staging" or "interface" table. Into that table load all the data from the excel sheet in it's natural order. No constraints on that table, you're just dumping.
Once you have the raw data in a table, then you can start thinking about how to more cleanly organize it. The database has the best tools to move and query data. You might as well use it.
It needs to be automated though (unsure if that matters).
Your Manufacturer, Supplier, Customer, and Location tables are probably unnecessary. Having a table for a few grouped fields makes sense. Having a table for a single value, essentially just replacing that value with a key value instead, does not.
It's more so that, well, let's say the location is 'company name' on one phone in the excel document, and then 'company nAme' in the other. That's a bad example actually because that could be fixed, but let's say they added an extra space or a dot by accident, I wouldn't want them to create a new location in the database for a location that already exists, so I figured I'd have them make a list of allowed locations, and the program would simply stop them if their document contained an error. The location as is has maybe 3-4 values, the customers are.. 1-2, and it's the same for manufacturers/suppliers.
