  11. Big Data Solution - best performance for lowest price

    I'm looking for a solution which can allow me to load in the region of 400 million wide rows per year. There will be about 30 columns which will be used for analytical purposes. Any ideas on a possible implementation of this? Needs to be an affordable (most likely open source) solution.

  12. OnePlus 3

    Anyone been following the launch, got any thoughts? The price jump from 250 to 300 moves it outside what I'd call a budget phone but it sounds like you get a lot for your money.

  13. Does anyone know about, or of communities I can ask about 4G connection problems?

    I posted a few months ago that my EE Osprey Mini 4G MiFi device was having issues. Fairly regularly I'd lose the internet connection even though the device itself claimed to have a strong 4G connection; the only solution was to reboot the device which always worked perfectly until the next time......

  15. Fallout 4

    Kind of a bit late in the day thinking about buying this but I realise it was probably a mistake not getting it in the first place. Need something until battlefield 1 comes out in October. Question is it still a game worth getting on Xbox 1?

  17. NoSQL - what's the big deal

    Recently got a lecture on how noSQL is far better than relational databases and that it must be the model we adopt in our development. The guy who came to me for a technical solution rated the guy quite highly but he just appears to be a geek with no business sense and no commercial experience. I...

  20. Generating xml from a database

    Any good tools for generating xml getting data from a database? This is SQL Server. I am looking at using tsql commands. It is clearly doable - though sqlserver has some interesting considerations(duplicate rows etc.) SSIS seems to have nothing useful.
