  • T-SQL Tuesday #19: Blind Spots

    A while ago I wrote a post, Visualize Disaster, prompted by a real incident we had at my office. Fortunately we came through it OK from a business point of view, but I took away an important lesson: it’s very easy, whether your organization and your team is savvy about disaster recovery or not, to have significant blind spots with regard to ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday # 16 : This is not the aggregate you're looking for

      This week, T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by Jes Borland (blog | twitter), and the theme is ''Aggregate Functions.'' When people think of aggregates, they tend to think of MAX(), SUM() and COUNT(). And occasionally, less common functions such as AVG() and STDEV(). I thought I would write a quick post about a different type ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #14: Resolutions

    This month, T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by freshly minted MVP Jen McCown (blog | twitter), and her topic is ''Resolutions!''  I already gave a rough sort of overview on my goals for 2011, but I thought I would be able to dig a little deeper with enough relevance to participate.  So with that in mind, and with a goal of not setting ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday : Are hotshot DBA skills necessary?

    Let's face it, there is a wide variety of skill out there. If you spend any time monitoring StackOverflow, MSDN forums, Ask SQL Server Central or twitter's #sqlhelp hash tag, you'll be very well aware that there are people out there barely managing their database environments - people that some of us wouldn't let within a mile of our own data ...

  • TSQL Tuesday #11:Rolling Back TRUNCATE TABLE

    “It ain't what people don't know that hurts them it's what they know that ain't so”  -- commonly attributed to Mark Twain SQL Server has been around for a long time now, and people who learn one version well sometimes have  monumental task when a new version comes out. They need to figure out what changed. The ''What's New'' ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #008: How Learning Has Changed

    When I started my technical career, the only way to learn about programming was from books and magazines.  I remember writing my first HTML page and finding it quite similar to the Vic20 days, where you would transcribe code for hours; when you made a mistake, that meant it was time to start over.  The Internet was ...

  • TSQL Tuesday #8: Those who can, do, and those who want to learn more, teach!

    It's time for the eighth T-SQL Tuesday, managed this time by Robert Davis at SQL Server Central. This time, the topic was announced very late, and I was just starting to write a blog post of my own when I saw it. Fortunately, my topic easily fits into this month's topic of ''Gettin' Schooled'', which is supposed to have something to do with either ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #5: My First Cube

    It's time for the fifth T-SQL Tuesday, managed this time by Aaron Nelson of SQLVariations. Once again, the deadline came up just too quickly, and I'm on the road this week, so my entry will not be too long. Aaron's topic is reporting and in keeping with my past posts, this contribution will include a history lesson.  Since I first learned ...
