The other day I added a mobile theme to this site so that you can view the site in a better format on you mobile devices. I have looked at it on my Nokia E72 and iPad and it looks ok. I would be interested in what you think it looks like on your mobile devices. The direct link to the blog is http://www.smarterdatacollection.com/Blog.

Quick Post : FireFox Can find you !!!
What do you think about this? With the latest versions of FireFox the browser can find you with amazing accuracy. For this link to work you must use FireFox i think it is 3.5 and above. I have tried this several times and only once did it say i was in Sydney ( the location of my ISP ). Every other time it has found me to within about 150 meters. I have only tried it via my wireless card and i guess it may give different results if you are connected via a wire but wow is all i can say.
How many Session Engines ( 5.5 )
So we have created some scripts that will show us our possibly concurrency, but what does this mean and how do we work out how many session engines we will need. This article will explain, what a session engine is and why we need at least one of them. We will show you some test results that we have run with the Data Collection Load tool and some standard scripts.
How many concurrents : Part 4
In the previous articles we designed some scripts to read the IVW log files to work out what the concurrency was, next we will write a script that will try and Estimate what sort of concurrency certain survey criteria might produce. In this article we will take all the information that we have gathered from Data Collection Users to try and produce some example loads.
How many concurrents : Part 3
In the last two articles we took our log files and converted them into an MDD and a DDF file that we can use for reporting. In this article we will create a tables script and produce 3 tables that we will then export to excel.
How many concurrents : Part 2
In this article we are going to create the final DMS script that we use to recode the concurrents.csv file created in the previous article into something that is richer and usable for tabulation. The final output file will be in a DataCollection Data file ( ddf ) format. This article assumes that you have some basic knowledge of DMS and VBA scripting.
How many concurrents : Part 1
Ever wanted to know what has been going on with your DataCollection Server Web concurrents? Interested in finding out if you are going over your limit of allowable concurrents frequently? If the answer to these questions is yes , then this set of articles is for you. In it we will show you how to look at the log files produced on your servers and calculate what has been going on and when. It should be noted that this article assumes that you have some knowledge of Data Management scripts as well as Tables scripts and VBA.
Learn ODBC : Deleting a records
In this article we are going to learn how to delete a record with ODBC. We will use the same base code as we have done in the previous examples and just add the additional delete function.
Learn ODBC : Inserting Records
In this article we are going to learn how to insert records into a sql database. The function we will create will be setup to insert into a non Data Collection Table.
Learn ODBC : Finding a record
In this second article about ODBC we will begin to explore the ADODB.Recordset object. We will take what we have learnt previously and use it to write a function that will connect to a database table using the ADODB.Connection object and find a specific record, once found we will return its id.
