  • Do You Have One of "the Three W’s" to Sit on a Board of Directors?

    Let’s get one thing clear right off the bat – I’m not typing “Board of Directors” repeatedly throughout this blog post. It’s just too much typing. BoD will have to do. Live with it. Perhaps, you’ve been paying attention to the PASS Twitter feed, read the newsletters, or otherwise stay abreast of happenings within PASS. If you haven’t, here’s ...

  • ITPro, Re-architect Your Life

    Have you ever found yourself wanting to make a major shift - in skills, in roles, in relationships? One of my good friends, Jimmy May (Blog | Twitter), accomplished a set of major career and lifestyle revisions including relocating to Redmond, taking on a huge new level of job responsibility as part of the Microsoft SQL Customer Advisory Team, and ...

  • Leaking Money?

    Does Your Group Spend Too Much or Too Little? I haven’t been blogging much this winter, as I’ve been buried under a fairly complicated an ugly upgrade project, which, I’m happy to say, is behind me now. There was one notion that kept coming back to me during that project that I thought I’d share. It seems obvious, but it’s an idea that it seems ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #25 : T-SQL Tips 'n' Tricks

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by Allen White (@SQLRunr) and is about sharing your T-SQL tips and tricks. Since I know many people will share their T-SQL magic and wizardry, I thought I would share a couple of productivity tips - so still T-SQL related, but more how to take advantage of some features in SSMS. Drag column list onto ...

  • Must-Have Resources - SQL Server Backup & Recovery

    One of the things that drives me crazy as I'm getting older is that my brain is losing the capacity to differentiate version numbers. As I speak travel around speaking with customers and at conferences, I find my self saying things like ''I can't recall if this problem was fixed in SQL Server 2000 or 2005. But you don't have to worry about that ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday 24: Ode to Composable Code

    I love the T-SQL Tuesday tradition, started by Adam Machanic and hosted this month by Brad Shulz. I am a little pressed for time this month, so today’s post is a short ode to how I love saving time with Composable Code in SQL. Composability is one of the very best features of SQL, but sometimes gets picked on due to both real and imaginary ...

  • Information Hoarder No More!

    I hate to admit it, but I'm a hoarder. Yes, like those insane people on the A&E TV show. Only my hoarding is all virtual. For example, take the image above. That's just a tiny part of my Google Reader home page. That's a tiny part of my Google Reader home page AFTER reading most of the day on a recent Sunday. I still had thousands of ...

  • How to Run a Series of T-SQL Scripts in a Specific Order

    Another post in the handy-but-not-bleeding-edge category. In the past few months I’ve seen a number of folks struggle with how to reliably/repeatedly execute a heap of T-SQL Script files, in order. One could certainly argue about why there’s the need for piles of scripts in text files, but that’s outside the scope of this post – today I want to ...

  • Top Tools I Didn’t Know I Needed as a DBA

    Today’s post is an unabashedly subjective plug for a bunch of unrelated tools I have come to rely on and love. I’m not really a “tools guy,” so there are no doubt better and worse tools for these tasks out there. I’m not affiliated with any of the vendors or authors. There’s no scientific method here - I just like these, and use them daily, and ...
