    What kind of RSS reader you use?
    I found IE as pain...to refer the subscribed feeds.

    I use Bloglines.com. Mainly because I need access from several different machines and don't want to download already read stuff over and over again. I once tried RSSBandit and found it to be sufficient for my needs. But that's really a matter of taste and preferences. [:)]

    At the moment I definitely sympathise with the developers' POV on that post.
    All the talk of data dictionaries, benefit of constraints vs. look up tables, types, relations and domain models left me feeling a bit ignorant.

    Any suggestions on good resources covering these issues?

    Hey,
    You are on the core and asking for information, why not use this website [SSP] for such references and anyhow we have Google search in hand that can get endless references [:)] .

    I doubtless will end up using google but still would like to hear if anyone has come across good articles or books they can recommend covering these areas in a consolidated manner.

    Then do yourself a favour and minimize the time wasted on searching by googling for books by Graeme Simsion. Also , these sites might also have valuable information:

    ... Anytime for any such reference I always open up the updated BOL for SQL 2005 (onwards) and then google for correct word-phrase...
