comment T-SQL stored procs orders of magnitude faster than LINQ
@qes: Yes I do. More than 2, but not dozens, and I've written 2. Which are the dozens you've worked with? It seems that simplest table selects cannot be that different across different providers (and besides contradicting "cannot generalize"), how differently can a stored proc represent a simple select than LINQ to SQL can generate the equivalent T-SQL? The LINQ-to-T-SQL translators are already provided by the ORM framework, so where's the fight?

comment T-SQL stored procs orders of magnitude faster than LINQ
@qes: A good comment, but I doubt this. Cannot generalize? Is the generated T-SQL or the algorithms used to generate it from e.g. LINQ-to-SQL and Entity Framework, really so fundamentally different? By time-consuming here I assume you mean development time, not running time (i.e. the question)? Even still, not necessarily. For example, suppose your query involved concatenation, other string manipulation, iteration,with persistence of some state from one row to the next, and calls to trigonometry functions...

Nice response. From the answers given here, it appears that the issue then is not really with note-taking per se, but the use of a machine which from some may serve as more of a distraction than a tool.

+1 for sensible justification.

Anthony thanks for your input. Before you vote to close this, however, consider other questions which might be applicable to those fields you listed, e.g. programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/24864/…, does that question necessarily need to apply to programmers?

So do you mean to say that you are against note-taking in general, for these reasons listed? Or that this is a list of some reasons of maybe why. What if points 1-4 are addressed, then are you still against note-taking? Those seem doable.

comment How to deal with people who don't want to share knowledge?
Ask yourself from their perspective, what's the benefit to them and not the team, for putting their time and effort into doing the extra work of documentation?

comment Why don't all companies buy developers the best hardware?
"The difference of productivity between...machines is negligible. The difference in price is significant." What is the value if you were to quantify this negligible difference? -10 min/day ? Suppose the top-end machine is $3000, and assume that almost-top-end is almost-$3000, or $2500. The difference is $500 a fixed cost distributed over 2-3 yrs. Is this your definition of significant?

Anandtech has come up with some interesting ways of quantifying performance and cost. anandtech.com/bench/CPU/2
