Slowly migrating away from dependance on Microsoft Products

For many decades we have been strictly Microsoft evangelist (where Microsoft had solutions that matched requirements), We became particularly excited when Microsoft announced Windows 10 mobile and Nokia designed mobile devices. Mobile we saw as a positive direction to encompass all our server and desktop efforts with mobile support. We put three years development effort into this direction and Microsoft continued to make positive statements and promised features that gave us confidence to expense time and effort. Customers started purchasing Microsoft phones. The almost overnight, suppliers did not have stock and Microsoft started to drop support for models that where under 12 months old and finally they announced that they have stopped all mobile development.

MemoryCache to optimize database lookups.

Using MemoryCache in VB.Net In this example performance is increased by putting the object into cache (which happens to be a row of data from a database), if that data is not accessed within a sliding expiration time (in this example 1 minute) it will be removed from the memory cache and if accessed later will re fetch from the database and once again place it in the cache.

Disk Defragmentation: Do you need a third party product?

For many years now we have kept a third party disk defragment tool in our tool kit, the product was UltraDefrag. We started with version 6 in the days when Microsoft's built-in defrag did a pretty poor job and using the free version of UltraDefrag delivered a noticeable performance boost. Begin a free tool we could install it temporarily on clients computers when being serviced and recommend the product to customers. Many of our customers reported that they installed UltraDefrag and made a donation to the author.
