Microsoft lives, eats and breathes by the numerical ratings at their Tech Ed conferences, and the various platform areas are pitted against each other based on these ratings. ...

  • re: Developing New Speakers

    Brent, thanks. I've also gotten dinged at a SQL Saturday because the original speaker scheduled for the time slot cancelled, and I was asked to fill in, and an attendee rated me poorly because I wasn't the original speaker scheduled.

  • Just an Ack Will Do

    In the 1980s one of my principal responsibilities was enabling communications between retail point-of-sale systems and the host computer where we processed those transactions.

    In SMO there's a Server object method called KillAllProcesses('AdventureWorks'), where you specify the database name inside the parentheses. &nbsp;If you capture the T-SQL executed when that method is called it returns the following query: SELECT DISTINCT request_session_id FROM master.sys.dm_tran_locks WHERE resource_type = 'DATABASE' AND ...
