| | 10 years on: IT does matter, more than ever
And thats the vital bit: information technology, computer technology, software technology is no longer a back room cost cutting tool. You read Carr’s article, you agreed with it, you commoditised your IT. Just under 10 years ago Nicholas Carr wrote a (in)famous piece in the Harvard Business Review entitled “IT doesn’t matter”. The argument was, post dot-com-boom, that IT was now a commodity, companies didn’t need to spend big bucks on it because they could buy just about anything they wanted off-the-shelf. At the time my response was, “Is IT worth it?” It was a strategy decision. Allan Kelly's Blog - Thursday, July 19, 2012

Then I ran across an article describing how to install a second hard drive into a MacBook Pro by removing the optical DVD drive and placing it in a separate enclosure. found useful information on how to do that. Every once and a while I pull something off that makes me smile. experienced this sensation last week when I swapped out the DVD drive in my MacBook Pro and replaced it with the 500 GB SATA hard drive that came with the machine. While I enjoyed the improved speed of the solid state drive, I soon ran out of space. had a total 740 GB of storage internal to my laptop. DevelopMentor Courses - Monday, April 2, 2012

Understanding Text Encoding in ASP.NET MVC (ASP.NET MVC Foundations Series)
This article covers the various ways in which you might handle text encoding in ASP.NET MVC. The purpose of this class is to inform MVC to get out of the way and NOT encode the contents.

- MongoDB vs. SQL Server 2008 Performance Showdown
This article is a follow up one I wrote last week entitled “The NoSQL Movement, LINQ, and MongoDB - Oh My!”. In that article I introduced the NoSQL movement, MongoDB, and showed you how to program against it in.NET using LINQ and NoRM. For ease-of-use, you’ll have to want to read the original article. This article is about the performance argument for MongoDB over SQL Server (or MySql or Oracle). In the first article, I threw out a potentially controversial graph showing MongoDB performing 100 *times* better than SQL Server for inserts. Those were. Your Turn.

- Getting Things Done with Backpack and 37Signals
Here's an article about Getting Things Done and how I use Backpack from 37Signals to make it happen. There have been some articles already written about Backpack + GTD. Answering these questions is the purpose of this article. In this article we'll look at the major pieces of GTD and how to fit them into Backpack. One of the huge advantages that Basecamp has over other systems that are just simple TODO lists is the ability to attach rich reference material and additional information to the TODO item that represents a next action, or waiting item, and so on. .
