Nearly any SQL topic presented at times in a slightly eclectic manner.

Hilarious

I don't know how many of you know about this site, but it raises my spirits on a daily basis. I found today's entry oddly familiar...

I actually have a proc called get_nothing in a database I work on, and for a good reason. A couple of key processes in the system use SQLCLR, and we were having a problem where the runtime was randomly crashing, requiring a service restart. So for monitoring purposes I created the proc, get_nothing, which does nothing except exercise a bit of code so that the monitoring program can figure out whether the restart is needed as quickly and easily as possible... Looks like that's not what's going on in the WTF article :-)

About James Luetkehoelter

I am passionate about what I do - which is DBA, development, IT and IT business consulting. If you don't know me, haven't met me or have never heard me speak, I'm a little on the eccentric side. One attendee recently described me as being "over the top". Yup, that about says it - because I only speak on topics that I'm passionate about.
