I was interested in getting an MCSD certification however I am not sure where to look up information regarding it. I checked microsoft but it requires silverlight now which I have been shying away from. After much searching I have found some sights with good information but little info on actual schools/programs offering classes. I am most interesting in taking an online course; aware the tests must be taken at a certified center. I have searched for rating systems and reviews of available programs but with little luck. I don't want to pay sign up and pay for a class only to discover the programs is of poor quality(little information, poorly designed, absent teacher, etc.) Any positive advice or info would be appreciated.
no significant reason. I went to the microsoft site seeking information only to get a message that silverlight was required. I have had a few significant problems with microsoft 'upgrades and improvements' so I looked elsewhere. I didn't expect the school ratings I was looking for to be on the microsoft web page anyhow. In addition I found a non silverlight version or at least part of it on another page.
I am surprised by his attitude. I access MSDN from a PC which does not have administrative rights and quarantined. But given the privileges, one soul does not want the (silver) light. Is this what they call 'One man's meat is another's poison?'
I have just completed my MBA (Systems) in Distance Learning mode from Alagappa University (http://www.alagappauniversity.ac.in/[^])
I am just thinking of doing a Ph. D. topic now. A few of my friends were advising that a Ph. D. would then make oneself turn into academic career again rather than in software.
But I feel that we gain a good knowledge of deeper research if we choose up a good topic. At least from India, I feel that the life in a software field packed with envy and jeolousy does not give a complete peace of mind. But at the same time, as time progresses, switching to an academic line, it gives a greater mental satisfaction of lighting more candles and illuminating the ambience.
Let me know about your views too.
Tip: I originally posted in the Lounge since I believed that should be a more generic forum but subsequently chose to move it here since this is more befitting on the topic. Furthermore, there is a little 'against in academic' topic running in Lounge currently.
Eventually, after a period of five years, I am just planning to enter into academic career in full. At least in India, the speed/pace of coding and development which gallops during the starting period then enters a snail's pace.

The environment in India wouldn't be that straight-forward as in your region. I might be low-voted for being an extra-frank though. But the amount of politics that prevails saddens an ethical heart.
I was just wondering, what the typical atmosphere a developer in California can expect? Are most developer/programmer jobs in California (the San Fransisco or Bay area) relaxed where there is a work life balance or is it more of a "your life belongs to the company" atmosphere?
We have an asp.net 2.0 intranet web application that provides a listing of the files on our file server. This intranet site runs on the same server as the files. Everyone has access to these files via the W:/ drive. So the issue we're trying to fix is that we want a user to be able to click on a link within the application to a local file on the file server (instead of having to download it) as the files can be quite large. We tried using a basic link = file///w:/test.zip but there are security issues with the browser. What is the best way to get around this?

People wouldn't trust this post for the simple reason that it does not contain the company website or profile besides using a FREE Webmail service which any Tom, Dick or Harry can pick it up. This assumes mammoth importance at least during now, with fake passport rackets, godmen and gold rackets are being busted open by the police.
