The other way to shrink your execution plan if you're using Denali is to zoom out, now that SMSS is using the VS2010/WPF shell :-)

Dave: Rob needs to learn to type MORE in his demos. This would keep him from making jokes that no one in the audience finds to be funny. The real issue may be his rather obscure rural farmboy accent, and for that I recommend several years of language therapy. He also needs to discontinue his use of quaint terms like "boiled sweet," which brings his intelligence into question. Doesn't he KNOW that it's called "candy?"

So yeah, a lot more typing. Please.

Yeah - very funny Adam. Will you be able to deliver this language therapy yourself? ;)

And yes, Dave - it was pre-prepared. And I only hit Publish just _after_ the talk finished.

You really need to get your facts straight before you present. I am a C# developer, and we C# developers do not, repeat NOT, know how to write SELECT * FROM SomeTable. We don't have to anymore - in 21st century LINQ does it for us ;).

Rob Farley said:

Haha - nice.

And we all know about the kinds of queries that LINQ produces.
