Sort Data with NULLs at the Bottom in Microsoft SQL Server

One of my clients has a reporting system that orders the data by a column that is a date. They wanted the sort to be ascending, but this places columns with a NULL value at the top followed by the data ascending. They wanted the NULL dates to appear at the bottom. To achieve this, […]

jQuery Superfish Menu and Jeditable in IE7

Since I’m carrying on a love affair with jQuery right now, I’m moving most of my customers to jQuery based plugins to simplify the JS code that I am currently using on their sites.

These forms were to request literature or request a call back, simple stuff. Incidentally they were getting […]

My Thoughts on the 2008 NBA Draft

Last night’s draft was both expected and totally unexpected at the same time. On one hand, the first 3 picks being Rose, Beasley, and Mayo was what just about everyone expected. The rest of the draft field, however, kind of shook things up. Joe Alexander, one of my favorite prospects, went 8th to the Bucks. […]
