  • Geoflow? Is that it, Microsoft?

    I didn’t travel to the SQL Pass Business Analytics conference this week but I keenly followed what was going on via the #passbac hashtag on Twitter. Seemingly the big announcement was Geoflow Preview for Excel 2013, an add-in for Excel that visualises data over space and time (read more at Public preview of project codename “GeoFlow” for Excel ...

  • Have SSIS' differing type systems ever caused you problems?

    One thing that has always infuriated me about SSIS is the fact that every package has three different type systems; to give you an idea of what I am talking about consider the following: The SSIS dataflow's type system is made up of types called DT_*  (e.g. DT_STR, DT_I4) The SSIS variable type system is based on .Net datatypes (e.g. ...

  • And The Winner Is...

    David Taylor! There were a lot of really great comments on the post titled A Visual Studio 2010 MSDN Seeding Card Giveaway Contest! The judging was completely subjective - just me reading the comments and making a call. One suggestion was apparently plagarized... bummer. All of the projects sound awesome and I hope those who commented will ...

  • OT : Buck Woody talks about the environment

    Buck makes a quick mention of the ''green'' efforts at Microsoft in his blog, and points us to the Environment site that Microsoft has created to show off what they are doing for a cause that is important to all of us.  There are several tidbits in here that can help you do your part, as well.  Please pass the word along.

  • Windows XP and 30 June 2008

    Bye Bye, Ms. Windows XP?  As of this writing Microsoft plans to stop selling Windows XP 30 June 2008. Steve Ballmer has indicated there may be wiggle room in this decision but (to my knowledge) no postponment has been announced. Back In My Day...  I've been around the block a couple times with Microsoft OS's ...

  • Getting Red

    I just now (well, when you read this it will be late last week; I write ahead sometimes) purchased a Dell XPS 1530 Red laptop with the new Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED SKU installed. Granted, it's 32-bit - mainly because it's a Dell (c'mon Dell, get with x64 already!) - but I'm psyched about the new box. It should arrive next ...

  • SQL Server Management Studio Standard Reports

    Buck Woody has a great series going on SQL Server ManagementStudio Standard Reports. The SQL Server team did a great job developing these insightful and intuitive reports. I often show them to customers and during presentations and the response is always positive. :{> Andy
