SQL Server CE 4 RTM gets no love? I've never seen a link to the stand alone install, for one... Can you provide it, please, if it exists?

@Gabriel, here's the scoop from the SQL Server team:

@Scott -- hey, thanks for the shout-out! :-)

Gabriel - LOL. Sorry, I'll get you some details and do a post.

Thanks Mike! Question: This redirects somewhere wrong...?

Hi Scott!

Thank you for sharing so much good stuff with all of us!! I have like 10 friends who follow every single post you made :) Most particularly, thanks a lot for the Razor tutorials, I'm looking at the PDF and looks promissing.

Beautiful roundup!

I like the attention to detail, and structuring for simplicity.

WebGrid is great but I wondered why it doesn't support server-side paging or sorting automatically. For examle when you give an IQueryable object it can call "Count" to fetch the total rows count and use "Take" and "Skip" to paging and "OrderBy" for sorting & blah blah blah.

Of course, when I gave it an IQueryable object, it executed the same query for 6 times to load! I searched about that but it seems it doesn't support such things?

Is it actually as simple as I say to implement such automatic WebGrid, or I'm wrong?

Is anyone else experiencing really slow install times with the Web Platform Installer? I've been installing WebMatrix for the past 1 1/2 hours, and it's still on Step 1 of 5?

Excellent post Scott!!

Everything you'd ever need to get started with ASP.Net MVC 3!

Keep 'em coming!

Would you please look here! That is about inheriting from "RequiredAttribute".
Is it realy a bug in MVC3?
