This was reposted a miriad of times, but I seem to can't find it when needed, so here it is, the famous slow query sql:
SELECT TOP 20 SUBSTRING(qt.text, (qs.statement_start_offset/2)+1,
WHEN -1 THEN DATALENGTH(qt.text)
END - qs.statement_start_offset)/2)+1),
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) qt
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(qs.plan_handle) qp
ORDER BY qs.total_logical_reads DESC

There is an interesting conference called Cloud Computing will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, where the detailed conference agenda can be found at http://www.iaria.org/conferences2010/ProgramCLOUDCOMPUTING10.html This conference will be devoted to the latest trends in cloud computing and future of this technology. Worth checking out.
It turned out that that IEEE-related conference was bogus and guy wanted to get money from authors. Beware.

An interesting trend in modern computing and UX is that users want to focus on a particular task and employ all the resources on their computing device on that task. In this regard, the power of GPU computing couldn't be underestimated with the availability of Tesla and CUDA programming suplimentary infrastructure. Another interesting prototype from Microsoft supported by a patent called Copenhagen sets up the focus on the user activity.

I'm opening a new series of posts related to performance optimization of software systems, which is my primary area lately. First, and most useful suggestion when it comes to setting up the environment, pay attention to the exact spec of the testing system, namely, CPU, disk, memory, software installed and running etc.

This is the first post from iPhone, so that I should confess that this sleek device attracted my attention and it's really about users and all the features are well-polished and well-organized. For example, it really saves time to listen to a podcast with 2x speed when one wants to cram more into shorted period of time. Although, my current blog engine doesn't play well when it comes to posting, so, I'll continue to look at consolidated blog/photo content management system. If you know one that is open and is based on .Net, drop me a line.
