FYI, I wasn't calling anyone a git, just checking on your understanding of the English usage of the word vs. the computer usage. It's nice to know that I didn't insult you, the English have a rep for being easily insulted. I think we Americans are sometimes considered so thick-headed, we can't tell when we are being insulted. For instance, I'm quite sure you didn't mean to insult me, so if I misunderstood, I apologize. My excuse is that I'm American.
Being able to write, regardless of the topic, doesn't mean that one actually knows the subject being written about.
Being part of a huge company doesn't make it better. Just to verify my understanding of the UNICODE definition I checked SQL Server's help definition. They are still using an ASCII character as an example for using UNICODE. ASCII is a subset of UNICODE, so it's valid usage, but you'd think they'd use a character that can't be put in a varchar field as an example.
Got my new custom async Nodejs webserver running. I tested it with Jmeter and it shows about 41,000 connections a second with no error. Seems pretty fast for a slow ass dev server. I notice the Jmeter is using 65% cpu and nodejs is about 15% to 30%. There is still room for improvement. I would like to get to the 100k connection level for one machine. One can only dream... I'm actually impressed what this V8 engine can do.
Whenever I've put it head to head with async asp.net on similar hardware asp.net has ended up with about twice the performance or more. It's much easier to just throw stuff together in node though, and meteor was pretty awesome the last time I played around with it.
We are building a production system for Nodejs relational data service (front) layers right now. From what we are getting, it seems to be good at present. Of course we haven't done any performence comparision yet.
