"Perpetual Money Making Machine..."
(September 8, 2004)
This entry will not live in its own page, as there isn't much to say on the subject, really (Perhaps, there is - However, I don't want to do any research).

I finally figured out why movie studios make "re-makes" of older, successful releases: to sell DVD or generate new revenue through DVD rentals.

I bit into their marketing schemes: I went to see The Manchurian Candidate, with Danzel Washington, and I had to rent the original DVD. What an Industry. In 50 years, movie studios will be re-releasing a re-make of the re-make, and in turn release holographic releases of the re-makes (Ok, I don't know what will replace DVDs).

A perpetual money making machine. I mean, we definitely want to be entertained. Or, at least the entertainment industry tells me that we want to be entertained - And I'm sure they are only looking after my best interest.

"Using static or instance method calls"
(December 10, 2003)
Is there a difference to use either type? Is there a performance difference while using static method calls? Static method calls seem to run faster, due to the lack of dynamic binding...
"Why is this application so slow?"
(September 27, 2003)
If you develop software for a living, you must have heard someone paying for your services utter the question: "Why is it so slow?" There are many reason, and hence many solutions...

Web Services - The next best thing after sliced bread

A while ago, I was commissioned to write and teach a quick introduction to ASP. This is the result: a 2 day introductory/hands on tutorial.
Security in an insecure world
(February 06, 2002)
This has nothing to do with real security, but, software security while buying things online with a credit card. Should you use a credit card or not?
