Peter DeBetta's blog about programming in SQL Server using technologies such as T-SQL, .NET, CLR, C#, VB, Visual Studio, and SQL Server Management Studio.
A good friend of mine just sent me a URL that until now, I had no idea existed. The URL is http://www.connectionstrings.com/ and it is a quick reference for connection string info for a large variety of data stores and providers.
Although I have not checked the site for technical accuracy, I suspect that it won't be an issue. But, on the off chance someone does find one, please let me know. Also, please let me know about any other data stores or providers that have been left out. Or, better yet, let the people at ConnectionStrings.com know about issues or missing data stores or providers.
