VB 6.0 died, rightly so.

Wed, 07 Dec 2005 00:37:00 +0000

Visual Basic 6.0 support died 31 March 2005. Rightly so. Everyone is up in arms. http://classicvb.org/ There is far too much badly architected, badly developed and security-less VB v1.0-6.0 code out there. And it is a risk to every business that is using it. Now how can a developer not want to move … Continue reading VB 6.0 died, rightly so.



Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express – CTP – November 2005

Tue, 08 Nov 2005 23:13:00 +0000

Microsoft have been working on a free management tool for SQL Server 2005 Express, and what they were working on during the betas was mostly tossed away in the July timeframe. Now, the CTP for the new tool, Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express is available. Something that looks and works like the full Microsoft … Continue reading Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express – CTP – November 2005



Scalable shared databases are supported by SQL Server 2005

Tue, 08 Nov 2005 23:04:00 +0000

Something that seems to have been added to SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, very late in the development cycle, seems to be on of it’s best features. The ability to have one DB, located on SAN, available to multiple SQL Servers at the same time, as a read only DB is just incredible. You can … Continue reading Scalable shared databases are supported by SQL Server 2005

SQL Server 2005 row level security

Mon, 10 Oct 2005 02:22:00 +0000

Ok, so Microsoft removed row level security from SQL Server 2005 early in the development cycle. Pity, but looks like it was just one of those trade-offs that needed to be made. A bunch of guys from Microsoft Consulting has produced a paper on how to implement “Row and Cell” level security in SQL Server … Continue reading SQL Server 2005 row level security



MVP again

Mon, 10 Oct 2005 01:51:00 +0000

Microsoft has decided to re-award me my MVP status again. Good. 3rd year running. I must be doing something right. The joke among the Germans is that MVP stands for “Muss Viel Posten” (translated: “must post a lot“). True, the presence in the newsgroups does influence the re-nomination. I am happy. My time has been … Continue reading MVP again



Back from Basta!/SQLCon05

Thu, 22 Sep 2005 17:36:00 +0000

It was great. The sleepy town of Mainz in Germany, then 600 .NET and SQL Server geeks arrive. My 2 sessions went well, and had great fun presenting them. I did not get much time to see the others, pity. I did see Ingo Rammer’s “Migrating .NET to Indigo”. Awesome. Then there was Meinrad Weiss’ “SQL Server … Continue reading Back from Basta!/SQLCon05



SQL Server 2005 – Database Mirroring off the cards for RTM.

Thu, 15 Sep 2005 21:47:00 +0000

So, Database Mirroring will not be “on” in SQL Server 2005 when it releases. From what I have read, it looks like it is not performing up to expectations. You can still enable it, but it’s probably going to be one of those “we told you so” scenarios. I do not doubt that it is … Continue reading SQL Server 2005 – Database Mirroring off the cards for RTM.



Swiss Vodka – xellent

Sun, 28 Aug 2005 00:16:00 +0000

A Russian Colleague living here in Switzerland told me about Swiss produced Xellent Vodka 6 weeks ago. She swore by it. So, the next day I went and bought a bottle, went to friends for dinner, put it in their freezer and 4 hours later, I took the bottle in my grip and promptly finished … Continue reading Swiss Vodka – xellent
