Cascading Deletes in SQL Server

I came across this stored procedure that will cascade deletes in SQL Server so I thought I'd share it. It's pretty neat but requires you to declare your foreign keys (who doesn't right). He he, I don't (yet) but this might be a good reason to start.

Ron Paul's Speech to Congress 5/22

I think Ron's got it! What the f* is wrong with the rest of the politicians?

Funny Quote Curtosy of Andy

I surprised my co-worker Andy today by touching him with a cold can of Coke. I was expecting him to jump or something but he did nothing of that sort. His explanation: "I'm married, I'm used to cold things next to me". Pretty funny.

Integrating .NET and ColdFusion

Good article about integrating .NET and ColdFusion:

.NET Feature — ColdFusion/.NET Integration

— As both a .NET programmer and ColdFusion developer, I always wondered how I could leverage the world of .NET in ColdFusion. Both platforms come with powerful features and using them together might be a wonderful friendship, if one could only make them cooperate. There are two worlds out there and none of them is an island.

Installing Ubuntu on an Older PC - Grub Error 17/18

I was trying to install Ubuntu on the wife's PC and I must have done it about 20 times before I got it to boot. At first I was getting "Error 17" from Grub, then after a bit of tweaking I started getting the so much better "Error 18". Wtf? Shouldn't installers be able to take care of this automatically? Apparently the issue was using an older BIOS with a newer HD and the BIOS cylinder limit (funny things since this same PC worked fine with Windows XP). So anyway, I finally found the work around to be:

1. Use the manual partition process in the Ubuntu installer

2. Create a 32mb partition at the begging of the disk

3. Set that 32mb partition to be mounted as /boot

4. Create a second partition after that to hold your Ubuntu install and a third partition for your swap

Weird Al in Concert

I saw Weird Al last night in a concert at a local casino. The guy is a genius! This is the second time I have seen him but it was worth every penny. I would go see him again. Yeah, I know...I'm a geek.
