Intel Bus Flaws Threaten Windows 2000
How fast Windows 2000 Data Center Edition can eat away at Sun Enterprise's market share is likely to be determined by factors that Microsoft cannot control, including what some say is the poor performance of Intel's Profusion chip set for 8-way servers.

Take Control of the Compile Process
Visual Basic's compiler gives you speed and source-code protection, but at the cost of some control over your binaries. Take an in-depth look with VBPJ's John Chamberlain at how VB's compiler works and reassert control over your binaries.

Capturing Console Output
What in the Sam Hill is going on in that message queue? Java Pro's Tony LaPaso shows you how to tap into System.out and System.err console streams. He's also built a class that can read the output of any app, even non-Java ones.

Automate Workflow with Outlook Forms
Guy Hart-Davis shows you how to automate a workflow procedure by using Outlook forms, their events, and VBScript. From the latest issue of Exchange & Outlook magazine.

Creating a Skin Component
Our Delphi Pro, Brendan Delumpa, has written a 10-Minute Solution this month that explains how to fit a form's border around a bitmap. This solution is pretty slick.

Control Scriptlets with JavaScript
Our Web Pro, Charles C. Caison, says that many times it is possible to write procedures or objects that can easily be reused. One way to make your Web pages more reusable is by turning them into client-side scriptlets. Read his 10-Minute Solution to delve further into the details.

Convert a Text File to XML
Text files don't contain tags and without them any text-to-XML converter sees such files as undifferentiated blobs. Our XML Pro, Kurt Cagle, offers this 10-Minute Solution that harnesses the XML Document Object Model itself to create a few fairly generic functions for dealing with straight text.
