  • T-SQL Tuesday - the swag

    This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Kendal van Dyke (@SQLDBA), and is on the topic of swag. He asks about the best SQL Server swag that we’ve ever received from a conference. I can’t say I ever focus on getting the swag at conferences, as I see some people doing. I know there are plenty of people that get around all the sponsors as soon as ...

  • Not-so-dirty SQL hacks

    Using a hammer to push in a screw isn’t a good idea, no matter how good the hammer is. We all know that. and yet there are times when we get frustrated at the ‘right tool’ and opt for the one that will work. Unfortunately, there are plenty of examples in the IT space – the topic of which is this month’s T-SQL Tuesday, hosted by Rick Krueger ...

  • Looking back, or looking forward?

    Sometimes I only blog for T-SQL Tuesday. I don’t want to break my run of blogging for each one just yet, but I do wonder sometimes. The reason I’m reflecting is that what we’ve done in the past will so often affect what we do in the future. The musician Sting tells us that “History will teach nothing”, but he’s trying to address the idea of being ...

  • Getting better over time

    This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Bradley Ball (@sqlballs), and he wants us to write about a proper balls-up. He wants us to think it’s an opportunity for a Second Chance, to see things as an opportunity to write about how we learned and did better when we had a second chance. I thought hard about this. I know I could write about times when ...

  • Plan Operator Tuesday round-up

    Eighteen posts for T-SQL Tuesday #43 this month, discussing Plan Operators. I put them together and made the following clickable plan. It’s 1000px wide, so I hope you have a monitor wide enough. Let me explain this plan for you (people’s names are the links to the articles on their blogs – the same links as in the plan above). It was ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday: What kind of Bookmark are you using?

    I’m glad there is no minimum length requirement for T-SQL Tuesday blog posts, because this one will be short. I was in the classroom for almost 11 hours today, and I need to be back tomorrow morning at 7:30. Way long ago, back in SQL 2000 (or was it earlier?) when a query indicated that SQL Server was going to use a nonclustered index to get ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #43 – Hello, Operator?

    June 11th is next week. It’s a Tuesday, the second Tuesday of the month, making it T-SQL Tuesday! This is your opportunity to write on a specific topic, along with countless* people from around the SQL community (* at least until the end of the day, when it will be quite easy to count how many people joined in). This month marks 3.5 years since it ...

  • Part of the journey: failure

    The topic for this month’s T-SQL Tuesday is about the journey. Wendy Pastrick’s choice (I’m hosting again next month!). There are a lot of journeys. There are some that just keep going, and others that seem to finish (some in success; some in failure). Of course, many of the ones that finish end up being the start of new journeys, but sometimes ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #41 - Presenting and Loving it!

    For this T-SQL Tuesday Bob Pusateri asked us to share how we came to love presenting. Before I ever got involved in computing technology I had (and still have) a love for the theatre, specifically musical theatre. When I was little the majority of albums (this was the 1950s, kids) we had were cast albums from Broadway shows my parents had seen ...

  • Why I present

    Louis Davidson just asked me why I write, and now Bob Pusateri (@sqlbob) is asking me why I present, which is his question for this month’s T-SQL Tuesday. If you didn’t follow the link to see his actual question, you’ll need to know that he actually posed the question “How did you come to love presenting?” Well, sometimes I don’t, but on the ...
