  • 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 ...

  • Pushing for more tools-related fixes for SQL Server 2011

    A few days ago I posted a list of Management Studio issues I hope they will add or fix for the next version of SQL Server (or sooner).  Comments there and elsewhere, as well as some afterthoughts, have led me to publish an addendum.  Again I will present them in separate categories. Filtering There are several issues about filtering, ...

  • Connect needs an "Ignored" status

    The SQL team seems to have been quite busy recently, commenting on and closing out many bugs and suggestions that have been raised, I suppose as they close out work on the SQL Server 2008 codebase.

  • 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 ...

  • November CTP : Initial impressions of SSMS changes

    [Updates below in BOLD.]On loading SSMS for the first time, I noticed a few things.  First of all, the row(s) affected message is now prefixed with information on the instance and login relevant to the query execution: As illustrated in the graphic, this information is already available in the status bar.  Why are they spoon-feeding ...
