  • Come Aboard. We're Expecting You...

    Those of us over a certain age (read - old as dirt) can remember the theme songs to certain TV shows better than we can the National Anthem. Try these lines out and see if you don't immediately remember the tune that goes along with them: Come and knock on our door | We've been waiting for you ... Makin' your way in the world today | ...

  • Database Maintenance Scripting Done Right

    I first wrote about useful database maintenance scripts on my SQLBlog account way back in 2008.

  • My Last "Catch-Up" Post for 2010 Content

    I did a lot of writing in 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of keeping all of that writing equally distributed throughout all of the channels where I'm active. So here are a few more posts from my blog, put on-line during the months of November and December 2010, that I didn't get posted here on SQLBlog.com: 1. It's Time to ...

  • Uncertainty erodes confidence, so add that ORDER BY clause.

    I was reading Eric Lippert's blog post, and came across the following quote: ''uncertainty erodes confidence in our users that we have a quality product that was designed with deep thought, implemented with care, and behaves predictably and sensibly''. How very true. By default, the code we are developing should run in exactly the same way ...
