  • T-SQL Tuesday #86 My all-time favorite personal SQL Server Enhancement Request: Automatically maintained columns

    I have heard the name T-SQL Tuesday for (like,) ever; but I have always been so into my own bundle of insanity that never took the time to figure out what it is. This changes today because I read a blog on Adam Machanic's (@adammachanic) blog that outlined the rules (here) and I have been keen to get back to blogging regularly. When I saw what ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #59: My Hero!

    This month's edition of T-SQL Tuesday is being hosted by Tracy McKibben (T|B). I was challenged by Aaron Bertrand (T|B) to participate in this T-SQL Tuesday. I instantly knew what and who I wanted to write about, but my schedule being what it is prevented me from writing the blog entry until straight up at midnight. (Originally ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #56 : Assumptions

    This month's T-SQL Tuesday is about assumptions in SQL Server. Over on our new consolidated team blog at SQL Sentry, I discuss the following assumptions I come across with relative frequency: Case will always short circuit A seek is better than a scan, always A query without ORDER BY will always order by _________ SQL Server's defaults are ...

  • 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 #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 ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #040: Files, Filegroups and Visualizing Interleaved Objects

    Early in my career as a DBA, I have to admit I didn’t quite “get” what all the fuss was about with the multiple file and multiple filegroup capability in SQL Server. Over the years, though, as I learned more about partitioning, backup strategies for large databases and, most importantly, storage internals I’ve started to catch on. For today’s ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #39: Managing your SQL Server Services with PowerShell

    This T-SQL Tuesday is about using PowerShell to do something with SQL Server. Now, if you've read any of my blog posts you probably know I've been using PowerShell to do things with SQL Server for a while now, but I'm glad Wayne decided on this topic for his T-SQL Tuesday topic, because everyone has different ways to use PowerShell, and you can ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday : Reflections on the PASS Summit and our community

    Last week I attended the PASS Summit in Seattle. I blogged from both keynotes (Keynote #1 and Keynote #2), as well as the WIT Luncheon - which SQL Sentry sponsored. I had a fantastic time at the conference, even though these days I attend far fewer sessions that I used to. As a company, we were overwhelmed by the positive energy in the Expo ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #34: HELP!

    I owe my career to the SQL Server community, specifically the Internet SQL Server community, so this month’s T-SQL Tuesday is especially poignant. I changed careers “cold” about eight years ago, and, while I had some educational background in computer science, I had relatively little real-world DBA experience. Someone gave me a shot in the form of ...

  • T-SQL Tuesday #31: Paradox of the Sawtooth Log

    Today’s T-SQL Tuesday, hosted by Aaron Nelson (@sqlvariant | sqlvariant.com) has the theme Logging. I was a little pressed for time today to pull this post together, so this will be short and sweet. For a long time, I wondered why and how a database in Full Recovery Mode, which you’d expect to have an ever-growing log -- as all changes are ...
