Peter DeBetta's blog about programming in SQL Server using technologies such as T-SQL, .NET, CLR, C#, VB, Visual Studio, and SQL Server Management Studio.
Although it should be apparent from the news on the home page, SQLblog has changed hosting providers, but what may not be readily apparent is that SQLblog is now running on CommunityServer 2.1 (it was on 2.0 until last week). I had been prepping the site in my spare time over the last couple of months, including some upgrades to the ReverseDoS component, CSS changes, and other sundries. I did a number of test runs of moving the data from the old provider (SQL 2000) to the new one (SQL 2005), upgrading the schema, etc. Everything seems to be working very smoothly, and ServerIntellect (our new provider) has been very helpful in keeping it that way - a small issue was quickly resolved and so far, we are very happy with them. (No I do not get any kickbaks if you switch to them).
||Putting images inline is now easier with 2.1, as shown here (a picture of me and my son)|
I also want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and good luck with the resolutions, whatever they may be. :-)
