I Realize this question has been beaten to death lately, but I think my request is different. I have built a development farm to mirror our live MOSS 2007 farm, but am looking at a way to keep the development environment up to date with the live environment
besides from a content perspective. I already have a solution in place to mirror the content db, but what about all of the binaries outside of the db's? For example, lets say I have two web parts deplolyed in live, but dozens deployed on development.
I would like to "refresh" my development environment so that it represents what is in live, since every web part I have deployed in development adds elements to the web.config, binaries in GAC, customizations, etc....in essence dirties up the environment.
Besides cloning, which brings about different issues that make it undesireable.....is there any information available on designing a Development to Staging to Live environment.....or are there third party products that can "replicate" the content as well
as what is outside of the content database in order to "mirror" a production version of our live environment to development? In addition, can this be done periodically so that developement environment can be "refreshed" by the live environments most

Load testing should be part and parcel of every Web development effort, and it should be performed early in the process. However, if you think you can load test using your development environment, you're going to have some surprises when you go live. In this article, the authors outline the process of planning your load testing effort, considering which machines to use, how many users to simulate, which tools are right for you, and how to interpret your results.

One of the many great features of the .NET Framework is that it has asynchronous infrastructure built in. In .NET you can call any method asynchronously by defining a delegate for the method and calling the delegate's asynchronous methods. This is beneficial to your application because when a synchronous call is made, the calling thread is blocked until the method completes whereas an asynchronous call is made on a different thread, and this allows the original thread to continue its work while the asynchronous call is in progress.This article explains delegates in .NET and how to use them to perform asynchronous calls, eliminating age-old threading problems.

This article provides an overview of writing applications for Windows CE 3.0. Unicode support in Windows CE, the kernel, memory management, the object store, and COM and DCOM are discussed. The article also covers the user interface, graphics, the Internet, and how Windows CE compares to the desktop in each of these areas. eMbedded Visual Tools 3.0 is discussed in depth. To help the reader decide which tools to use, development with Visual Basic, Win32, MFC, and ATL are explained. Text editor samples with this article have been developed with Visual Basic and Win32 so their implementations can be compared.

1. ScriptResource.axd is making my page slow in first click.
On second click onwards its fine as i have added handler from http://madskristensen.net/post/Compress-WebResourceaxd-in-ASPNET.aspx It helps performance but from second click onwards.I am testing it with FireBug.
2. I have also seen and treid http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/AspNetOptimizer.aspx but not able to make out how to implement in my application.
3. I also tried http://madskristensen.net/post/Optimize-WebResourceaxd-and-ScriptResourceaxd.aspx but it has error, I tried making chnage as per the discussion in url but it is sill giving error.

We developed an InfoPath form using a local DEV environment. The site collection under which the form was developed was
We are now attempting to deploy this form to a TEST environment that uses a slightly different structure for the collection, namely
In both cases the site that contains the form is /fin (so we were using
http://server1/fin in DEV and want to use
http://server2/sites/sitecol1/fin in TEST).
The form contains VBA code and so requires admin-based deployment via Central Administration, so to deploy to TEST we:
1. Publish the form against the TEST server using InfoPath Designer
2. Upload the form using Central Administration > Application Managment > Manage Form Templates
3. After upload, we activate the form for the site collection
4. The form is then associated with a Form Library
When we try to create an instance of the form within this library we get the following error when we click on New to create the form instance:
The following location is not accessible, because it is in a differ
