  • re: Nepotism In The SQL Family

    Nice headline but of course &quot;SQLFamily&quot; isn't a family. It's a networking thing. So this isn't nepotism at all; it's just good business. Nothing wrong with that, no matter how you slice it.

  • re: PASS Summit 2014 and the Contradiction of Long Running Things

    @Chris: Well it will be 75 minutes. Long enough, I hope :-) ... and personally I'd prefer the morning just before lunch. I don't like presenting advanced material to tired audiences! @Tibor: Why can't you join? Would be great to see you there! @Kevin: Thanks for the glowing review!

  • PASS Summit 2014 and the Contradiction of Long Running Things

    As database professionals, I find that one simple thing unites us in our mission, above all else: we absolutely hate long running things. I'm with you. I'm here for you. I want to help you reject long running things. PASS Summit 2014, the premier SQL Server conference of the year, is returning to Seattle this November. And I am returning to PASS ...

  • re: PASS Summit Abstract Feedback

    @Chris Both of my sessions effectively target all versions of SQL Server between 2008 and 2014, and all demos will be shown on a 2014 instance. The new CE changes almost nothing with regard to these techniques. I've already run numerous tests on that, both with my own demo data sets and some customer data. The CE can certainly help with better ...

  • re: PASS Summit Abstract Feedback

    @Derek Thanks for sharing. I generally write the lists in my abstracts in the order in which I'm planning to present them in the real talk, but in this case you're probably right -- it would be better to put the focus first.

  • PASS Summit Abstract Feedback

    Last week PASS announced its selections for its 2014 Summit. (I had a couple of abstracts selected, but I'll go into detail on those in a future post.) As usual, very little feedback was provided to speakers on why abstracts were or were not selected. But this time a number of people demanded action. And as it turns out, PASS was well-equipped ...

  • re: PASS and Summit 2014 Session Selections

    I have mixed feelings about the &quot;same company&quot; complaint. But I absolutely DO NOT think that a board member has any place delivering a paid precon. You can wait until your board tenure is over, as far as I'm concerned. As for Brent's mission for transparency, I am 100% behind him. I wrote to the prior person in charge of the program ...

  • re: Geek City: Lost Identity

    @Chris I hope you didn't introduce a potential concurrency issue (or race condition) with that solution. To properly implement it and avoid the race condition you need to be very careful with locks and serialization. This might inhibit the ability to scale your workload. Of course if you only have 9999 values, as I think you've indicated, then ...

  • re: Released: Who is Active v11.11

    @Chris92 Not really. You can usually get a much better idea if you use @get_outer_command = 1.
