A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

New website online and sys2 scripts updated

Thanks to these Holydays I’ve been able to update my website which now uses the phenomenal Umbraco CMS.

Umbraco is a open-source, free (if you don’t need support or don’t want to re-brand it) Content Management System, completely built with ASP.NET. It simply rocks. After an intense but short learning curve, you can create a website without having to take care of anything else but its content. Just the look & feel and the content. No other problems or things to deal with. All you need is a little knowledge of XML/XSLT and HTML/CSS. What a dream! :-)

In addition, if you’re as good as website design as I am, you can find some valuable help on where in just a few hours you can apply the web site design you choose to your Umbraco powered web pages.

And this is what I’ve been able to do:

Now, beside that (I hope these information helps everyone who want or needs to have and self-manage their own web presence), I’ve also had the time to update my “SQL Scripts” page:

Here you’ll find all my “system” scripts that helps me to save time and keystrokes while using DMVs. In particular, for now, index-related DMVs.

In these last years I’ve written and gathered a lot of useful scripts like those and now that I have a rockin’ CMS I should be able to keep the online version much more updated so, stay tuned!

Any feedback on scripts is more than welcome! If you find something that can be improved or fixed just let me know.

Ah, yeah, the script should work with SQL 2005 and 2008 (but I've tested it only on 2008 for now).
