Time difference : Hosting Server and client

hi All,I have asp.net/c# web project. How to manage the time difference between the server and clientFor instance, I am at India, and Server is located at UK. So if do any activity, like "comment on friend's photo" etc. the time stamps is UK's time. So if do some activity from India at 10.00 AM, the time stamp would be 5.00 AM. So if the user who sees his activity at 10.00 AM sees it as if it was done at 5.00 AM.If user whom he acted upon (like friend whose photo got the comment) too see 5.00 AM. this is ok if the friend is at UK, but causes confusion if he was at other time location like Australiahow to handle this

SQL Server 2008 query execution time is different if i execute it in management studio or from code

When I execute query from software which i wrote in c# it required lots of time to complete but if I execute exactly the same query from management studio it will be done in seconds. In both cases execution plan is the same. 

SQL Server 2005 - Maintenance Jobs take a long time after OS Upgrade


We have SQL 2005 Ent Edition (SP2) on W2k3 R2 Ent Edition. This OS was previously on Std Edtion and we had done an In-Place upgrade to Ent Edition some time back. Since then the Maintenance plans - Update Stas & Index Rebuild seem to take double the time to execute. I do believe this could be due to an already busy disk subsystem (RAID 5 array).

Can someone pls advice what could be possible reason for this sudden increase in the maintenance job execution time.

Essential SQL Server Date, Time and DateTime Functions

The essential date and time functions that every SQL Server database should have to ensure that you can easily manipulate dates and times without the need for any formatting considerations at all.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

SQL Server: Build Apps that Provide Real-Time Information and Customized Content Using SQL Server No


The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

Does SQL Server have to load and init statics every time a SQL/CLR managed proc is invoked?

We are working with SQL/CLR stored procedures, triggers etc and it seems that all assemblies we use are unloaded/loaded every time a proc or trigger or TVF is called. Is this true? Is there any way to retain data between invocations of procs? for example can I create some static struct or object that I can setup once and then just refer to after that, so that unless we terminate SQL server, the static data is always in memory? Thanks PS: This was originally posted here, but that forum seems to be rarely frequented.  

WCF - First call to Callback instance from Server takes considerable time to make it to the client.

Hello. There's a performance problem we are facing that we are unable to fix using DuplexChannels. The first call made by the client to the server reaches the server instantly. The first call made by the server to the first client using a Callback proxy will take several seconds to reach the client. All subsequent calls to the client (as well as other clients) will reach and execute instantly. The client connects to the Server using a proxy to IServiceProvision, supplies an instance to an implementation of IClientCallback and calls IServiceProvision.Start(). The server instantly processes the call and makes an asynchronous call to IClientCallback.DoWork(), which takes several seconds to enter the client's DoWork() implementation. The remainder of the execution then runs smoothly. Also, the server will experience such a slowdown only for the very first call of the first client that connects to it. Is it normal for the Callback interface to take so much time to warmup, only on the first call to the first client? Below is the full source code. Thanks for any information you may provide. Cheers Mike Shared Class Library using System.ServiceModel; namespace Test { [ServiceContract(Namespace = "http://test/IService", CallbackContract = typeof(IClientCallback))] public interface IServiceProvision { [OperationContract] void Start(); [OperationContract] void

Server Time Dimensions - language mix

I'm making my first steps with SSAS and as part of my test project, I added a server based time dimension. During generation, I configured the langage to be German (Germany) (the machine and Visual Studio are set up in English). What is being generated is a mix between English and German though - the calendar year and quarters remain in English, and the months and day of week are in German. Shouldn't the whole hierarchy be in the language I chose? I'm using SQL Server 10.0.2531.
