{ End Bracket }: What Makes Good Code Good?


When MSDN Magazine asked me to write a page on something I care about, I said, "You mean, like abolishing taxes, car phones, and SUVs?" Alas, they meant something to do with programming. Well! After pondering, I realized that something I care about is writing good code.

{ End Bracket }: Trustworthy Software


The Authenticode dialog box that users see when they download software from the Internet, asking them if they trust the publisher and want to install the software is, in my opinion, a useless and annoying waste of time that provides no safety whatsoever.

Good way to do a Many-to-Many relationship?


I've used the automatic  Many-to-Many generation as described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd742359.aspx

But that doesn't seem to allow a quantity to be attached to orders (in the example it would be courses). I have many customers and many products, I would like a customer to be able to order more than one product. Right now I get a grid of checkboxes. I would like instead a field where I could enter a number. 

Is this possible?
