  • Geek City: Two Compression Questions and Parameter Metadata

    I am teaching the SQL 2008 version of my course for the first time this week. My life is still is disarray and spare time is practically non-existent.  During the evenings after I class I am trying to get caught up on several projects that I fell way behind on over the last month when most of my time was spent in the hospital. Blogging ...

  • SQLBits 2009

    This the second time in a row I will not able to attend to SQLBits - but don't lose this event if you can go to Manchester on March 28th, 2009.

The reason I cannot go is mainly because a ...

  • SMO Changes from SQL 2005 to SQL 2008

    A year ago in anticipation of publishing a book on SMO (which never came to be) I wrote a number of chapters demonstrating how to manage specific sets of objects, and I provided examples in VB.Net, C# and PowerShell. As should be expected, I thoroughly tested all of the code samples to make sure they worked. This year I've been part a couple of ...

  • Geek City: Too Many Indexes!

    I wrote about ''Too Many Columns'' last September, and along with changes in SQL Server 2008 that allow lots of columns, there is also the ability to create more than the old maximum of 249 nonclustered indexes on a table. I knew this fact, but somehow I overlooked it when updating the chapter on table structures in my new book. My omission also ...

  • Did You Know? I just submitted my last chapter!

    Less than an hour ago, I sent my last chapter of my next book ''SQL Server 2008 Internals'' to my editor! Note that I said ''my'' last chapter, not ''the'' next chapter, as two of my co-authors still need to complete their chapters. But I've finished my chapters! Now this is still more to do, in addition to the waiting for the other two chapters ...

  • PASS Demonstration Errors

    Errors occur. (I'm sure that's someone's corollary to Stuff Happens.) Errors occur, and that's why we write error handling code in our applications. My least favorite time for the occurrance of errors is when I'm doing demos, and that's what happened in a presentation I did at PASS last week. I try to test everything before giving the demos, ...

  • Did You Know? You can search the web-only Books Online

    You might be aware (from other bloggers on this site) that there is a new web-only Books Online for SQL Server 2008 available at  Like Tibor, I prefer a downloadable BOL, partly because I do a lot of research and writing while traveling and I don't always have an internet connection, ...
