Re: Interactive Feature Upgrade Theory



fixed

Its hard for me to escape the idea that buying cheaper interactive
processor on a "special deal" could be the equivalent of borrowing even
more money to pay my bills while interest rates are down.... At least
that's what history tells me.

If you figure the list price of the interactive feature and the cost of
green streak promotion then put the difference towards reducing the
reliance on interactive CPW then you might be able to afford the
interactive feature on the upgrade after this one :)

Havings said that, is the query processing significant ? This is any easy
one to fix based on how long the estimator thinks the query will run. You
can force everything over x minutes to batch rather than letting your users
decide.

Chris,

I didn't really look at your specs, but if you are looking to upgrade by
the end of the year you really should evaluate the GreenStreak promotion
before it expires this month.  Big price reduction on interactive.
