  • SQL Saturday #33 : slide deck, recap and shout-outs

    [Sorry I have been a little absent over the past couple of weeks.  Returning from the Olympics just a little over a week ago meant some busy catch-up and a heavy lead-in to today's event.] Today I spoke at SQL Saturday #33 in Charlotte, NC.  My presentation was virtually a rip-off of the one I gave at SQL Saturday #34 in Boston: ...

  • Connect Digest : 2010-02-06

    Upgrading a database with read-only filegroups Earlier today, I complained that I should be able to upgrade a database with read-only filegroups.  In this case an upgrade from, say, 2000 to 2005 is blocked because the engine can't update the system schema / structure.  Since I am trying to protect the data, not the system schema, I ...

  • Management Studio Tips & Tricks, version 1.0

    Today I presented ''Management Studio Tips & Tricks'' at SQL Saturday #34 in Waltham, MA.  I had an audience of close to 100 (my biggest talk yet!), and unless they were stroking my ego, I achieved my primary goal for the session: to make sure that every single person in the room learned at least one new thing about SSMS.

    Control over procedure cache We are still waiting for more control over procedure cache.  Adam Machanic wrote up this blog post highlighting a Connect item which he opened in 2007.  It is currently closed as ''won't fix'' but it's been shown time and time again that in some cases we need this extra knob. #293188 : Amount of RAM for ...

  • Quick poll : what is your favorite Management Studio tip or trick?

    I am putting together a presentation on SSMS Tips & Tricks, which I will debut at SQL Saturday #34.  I already have a pretty full slide deck, but I am not the be-all and end-all of SSMS, so in the interest of distributing this information as widely as possible, I would be interested to see if you have any tips and/or tricks that I haven't ...
