comment Can lack of “bit parity” between web server and DB server impact performance?
That is what the vendor was claiming, yes. Performance of 32,32 or 64,64 is higher than 32,64 or 64,32.

TCP has flow control... Maybe we aren't talking about the same layer or something? In general, "normal" network traffic does have flow control. But this is immaterial to this question I think. Reference: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

That would be possibly only if they were using low-level network protocols that allowed for that kind of thing. Using "normal" TCP/IP or whatever prevents those types of issues. And speed of sending vs. speed of receiving has nothing to do with server "bit-ness".

I agree 64 bit is the future. But that wasn't the point of my question. I'm questioning the vendors supposition that bit parity is a valid requirement they are putting on us. We have existing server farms that we want to use that aren't in parity.

Is it possible? I can't think of one scenario where it is a physical possibility. I am also leaning toward the "vendor full of it" option. :-)

comment How not to suffer from ideologists when you're a pragmatic person?
Agreed. And like everyone, I believe I walk the perfect line between the two, and everyone should strike the same balance I do. :-)

comment Can you make a build in one step?
Another good continuous integration environment for ASP.NET is TeamCity. I've used by CruiseControl and TeamCity and I found TeamCity to be a bit easier to use and a bit more powerful. But that might no longer be the case.

comment How to persuade programmers to follow the basic rules
@0101 Very true. The power helps to push the message. The message has to be crafted so that it will be accepted and followed.

comment Why is C# ASP.NET generally not regarded as a rapid web development framework?
@Thomas I guess I just plain disagree. Forgetting the "RAD" buzzword, some frameworks and languages make things quicker to develop than others. That seemed to me to be what Nai was asking about.
