comment Dealing with curly brace soup
@Cyborgx37: It might seem to be a lot of extra work, but it's fully worth it for readability, and it "almost" follows along with VB syntax. So, coming from that background, it should be almost second nature. :D

I agree. Egyptian brackets give me a headache.

comment Dealing with curly brace soup
One thing I've seen done, and I've taken to doing, is at the end of a curly brace, I'll add a comment about it. Something like // End's using X statement.

comment Increase application performance
This might sound incredibly dumb, but is it possible/smart to thread the queries to have them all running simultaneously?

comment Increase application performance
I had assumed, and probably rather incorrectly, that it was better to have 1 query get all the data and work with that, than to run individual queries for each calculation. I'm guessing that this is not the case?

comment Increase application performance
I've never really worked with SQL before now, and am just learning as I go. Having experienced two vastly different sized databases, and having seen the drastic slowness of the bigger one, I was just wondering if there was anyway to make it faster. I realize this may not be a very elegant way of doing things, but it gets the job done, and that's all my employer really cares about. The speed issue he's not worried about. But I am. I just feel it could be better.

comment Should I have a separate method for Update(), Insert(), etc., or have a generic Query() that would be able to handle all of these?
Thank you. I know of Entity and NHibernate, but I wanted to try to do something on my own.
