  • 3 More Weeks 'til Launch!

    3 weeks from today, the launch party for SQl Serve 2008 will be on!  If you are in Southern California, you will be in the ''happening'' spot.  Enjoy! Why have a launch without the release of the product?  SQL Server 2008 is more of an incremental release.  There are some great new features in the product, but the bulk of the ...

  • Katmai's 3 Blunders

    an open blog post to the SQL Server product managers...  Katmai is a great release of SQL Server, new features are a clear evolution of the core product. I like Katami more than Yukon. But, I see three 'areas of opportunity': 1)    Not including full support for the over clause. Composable SQL is cool (perhaps my ...

  • Registered Servers become more useful

    In playing with the latest CTP for SQL Server 2008, I stumbled across some new context menu items for a server group node in Registered Servers.  You can now right-click a group node and choose options such as ''New Query'' or ''Object Explorer.''  When I first saw the items in the list, I thought it was some kind of bug, because how can ...
