How Precious one’s Health is…MUST READ

Pieter Gheysens conveys his condolence to his friend
David Boschmans (aged 32, blogger, father to a 3 year old daughter, MS evangelist)
who passed away last night due to Heart problem. Really I started thinking
precious one’s health is???

For the
past few days, myself feeling back ache, started forming tummy which pushes me down
when I think of sitting late or in extra hours to update myself. I’m not
regular in walking or fitness freak, this makes me uncomfortable and fearful. I’m
not going to take my laziness lightly from now…I’m request my blog
readers to think of this seriously to make your life beautiful with Good Health and Wealth. Life is beautiful,
make yours with utmost happiness and be fit.

sorry to David’s Family and my heartfelt condolence to his wife and 3
year old daughter. Put your comments @

Main Difference between ADO.NET and ADO

One of my friend who is preparing
for interview has asked me the difference between ADO.NET and ADO, I’m
sure I’m not answered well for his Q, so later decided to experiment on this.
Here is the result collected from different source organized in tabular manner
for better understanding.

Features                                                           ADO                                         ADO.NET

(1) In-memory representation of data
               Recordset                                 DataSet

(2) No.of Tables                                                Single
Table                              Can
hold ‘n’ Tables

(3) Relation between these table                         Not
Possible                             Possible          

(4) Record Navigation                                  
     Cursors (ex: movenext)              Collections
through class (Ex: Rowcollection, Columncollection etc)

(5) Connections Type                                 
       Opened Type                            Disconnected

(6) Communication                                    
       OLE DB Provider                      OleDbDataAdapter,
SqlDataAdapter etc

(7) Transmit data between diff application    
      By Com Marshalling                  By
simple Dataset export to XML files

(8) Transmiting data types                          
       Through Com, only limited         Through
XML format, no restriction on data types
