  • I'm speaking at SQL Saturday #250 in Pittsburgh!

    On September 14, 2013, I will be speaking at the 2nd SQL Saturday event to be held in Pittsburgh.  I spoke at the last SQL Saturday event last year which was a blast.  This year, I will be presenting a session entitled ''Really Basic Perfmon''.  It is designed for the person who has heard about Perfmon before, but never really got ...

  • Comparing Standard Editions of SQL Server

    Recently, I've been speaking with customers about upgrading SQL Server.  At times, some customers have a lot of Standard Edition  SQL Server 2005 / 2008 / 2008R2 in their organization and they want to see the features they get when upgrading to SQL Server 2012.  Last week, I sent out some tweets to the #sqlhelp hashtag to see if ...

  • Connect Digest : 2009-05-30 : please vote!

    Here are some issues I came across recently; most involve SSMS in some way, though Erland's assertion suggestion is a great one. And just to be clear, since I am seeing some accusations of distorting the fairness of Connect by ''asking for votes,'' I am not asking anyone to vote blindly on these items (and it's clear from last week's results that ...

  • Connect Digest : 2009-05-23 : please vote!

    Here are the items from this week that I feel deserve some attention.  I'm also adding a little bit of analysis to this.  I am always curious if my vote-pimping has any effect, so I am going to start taking a note of the ratings at the time I publish the post, and then compare them when I publish the next post.  This will give me ...

  • Connect Digest : 2009-05-16 : please vote!

    Here are the items from this week that I feel deserve some attention. ==================== Hotfixes / service packs should leave authentication mode alone I may have talked about this issue here before, I'm not sure, but I thought I was the only one who saw this happen.  This week someone else came across the issue, where they had a SQL ...

  • Come on, it's Saturday, get out and vote!

    I was encouraged by some fellow MVPs (well, mostly Alexander Kuznetsov) to periodically post a set of Connect items to encourage voting for items that I found relevant but that are maybe being largely ignored.  Saturday is probably my best opportunity to do this, especially ones like today where the weather is crappy.  While I can't ...

  • PASS Website Overhaul

    PASS has launched its new website.  There has been a lot of hard work behind the scenes over the past year to be ready for this.  Nothing ever goes as planned, but I believe that you will agree with me that the improvements made are huge. If you are not a member, membership is now FREE at www.sqlpass.org.  The summit will be held ...

  • Filtered Indexes

    In SQL Server 2008, you can have what is called a ''Filtered Index''.  What does this mean?  An index may be created for a subset of rows in your table.  For instance you could create a filtered index for a ''state'' column if the value is ''CA'' for California; the rest of the states would not have a value.  When you create ...

  • No More HCL - in 2008

    The old Hardware Compatibility List which was renamed the ''Windows Catalog'' is no more.  When creating a Clustered Solution, you need to have a system that is Certified for clustering or there will be no official support.  This has been a point of pain in the past as organizations purchased a clustered solution and then one of the ...
