Within a VB Namespace, you can create items such as classes, modules, structures, interfaces..."

From West Wind Technologies: "I still deal with a lot of customers who need to interact with old school SOAP services. Recently I worked with a customer who needed to implement a SOAP Service based on an existing WSDL specification. If at all possible I try to avoid WCF for ‘simple’ SOAP services, as ASMX services are almost always easier to implement, deploy and maintain than the morass that is WCF. As is often the case with SOAP (and XML/Schemas) getting this service set up to match the behavior of an existing service..."

From SQL Authority: "Some organizations use SQL Server Always On Availability Groups to help boost performance of applications where the users are geographically dispersed. They accomplish this by placing the secondary database in the same facility as the remote users.

From MS SQL Tips: "We often need to import data into SQL Server from a file. Sometimes unwanted end of line characters are part of the source file and these can create issues when importing the data. One of the ways to avoid this issue is to use SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), but it doesn't always make sense to use SSIS for simple operations. So I use BULK INSERT and I sometimes face issues with Line Feeds and Carriage Returns. In this tip I cover some examples and how to fix the issue."
