  • Connect Digest : 2009-08-22

    I rounded up a few interesting items this week. Does ''1/10/1900'' mean January 10th, or October 1st? This item demonstrates that Microsoft isn't all that concerned about publishing sample code that uses ambiguous or troublesome formats for date literals.  Initially the Books Online topics mentioned in the item used ''1/10/1900'' as a ...

  • Connect digest : 2009-08-09

    Sorry, I've been trying to keep this to a regular Saturday installment, but it was a beautiful weekend here and I just couldn't pass up on non-computer-related activities.  I have a short list of Connect items to draw your attention to this week. =============================================== Setup messes with authentication mode I was ...

  • SQL Server 2008 Books Online update is available

    Well, let me be more precise: there is an updated version of Books Online online.  As reported earlier by Buck Woody, the online version of SQL Server 2008 Books Online has been updated (we are seeing the updates now but the content was refreshed June 29th).  The download has not been made available as of yet; this usually takes several ...

  • Trace Flag Groupings

    I just saw a news group post by Paul Randal in which he explained how trace flags were grouped into certain categories and thought others may find this interesting as well. Please note that Paul stated that these are from memory so they may not be 100% accurate or complete.   Trace flags are grouped by area of SQL Server - the first two ...

  • Connect Digest : 2009-06-05

    As I mentioned in last week's digest, I want to make it clear that I am not presenting Connect issues in this format in an attempt to tip the scales or pimp influence votes.  I am merely creating exposure for Connect items (bugs or suggestions) that you may not otherwise come across in your daily travels.  Please only vote for issues ...

  • More info on the May 2009 update to SQL Server 2008 Books Online

    I finally got around to installing this update today, and thought I would mention a few things. Don't be surprised that ''Books Online (May 2009)'' actually says ''April 2009'' in the application's title bar and on any page which states the version.  (I already received one private message asking me why they got the April version instead ...

  • Connect Digest : 2009-05-16 : please vote!

    Here are the items from this week that I feel deserve some attention. ==================== Hotfixes / service packs should leave authentication mode alone I may have talked about this issue here before, I'm not sure, but I thought I was the only one who saw this happen.  This week someone else came across the issue, where they had a SQL ...

  • Checkpoint – Four pillars down, Three to Go

    With the previous post on the fourth pillar, I have reached the “end” of the design posts.  To review, these were: Coherent – cohesive, comprehendible, standards based, names/datatypes all make sense, needs little documentation Normal – normalized as much as possible without harming usability/performance (based on testing) ...

  • Come on, it's Saturday, get out and vote!

    I was encouraged by some fellow MVPs (well, mostly Alexander Kuznetsov) to periodically post a set of Connect items to encourage voting for items that I found relevant but that are maybe being largely ignored.  Saturday is probably my best opportunity to do this, especially ones like today where the weather is crappy.  While I can't ...
