I've been drinking WestVleteren 12 lately, which has been re-elected as the worlds best beer this year.

I've been in Lanzarote for the last 5 months, apart from a few days in England in September and another few in November, so mostly I've been on wine. The rare times when I drink beer out here it's usually Guiness, but sometimes one of the local beers (because guiness is not a good tipple when it's about 30 degrees in the shade). I guess I'll be back on beer when I'm back in the UK (although the weather in the summer there tends to suggest that a good hot soup might be a better tipple) so maybe I'll post something here then.

I've been too inebriated on beer to post!



My mantra: No loops! No CURSORs! No RBAR! Hoo-uh!

My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?

My advice:
INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?
The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.


Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?
Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!
Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.
Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!

Morrison's are stocking a new Adnams ale, Ghost Ship. It's vaguely similar to the famous Thornbridge ales, Jaipur, Kipling and Wild Swan but a little sweeter. Lush even in our cr@p British weather. It will really come into it's own when we have our summer, one of the weeks in May.

I'm going to big up Sunny Republic:

http://www.sunnyrepublic.com/

Their American Brown Ale is among the nicest things I've drunk in a while. St Wites is good just not to my taste, I love the Beach Blonde as a session beer. I'm trying to persuade my local to get the Hop Dog in.

American beer is not all bad these days so I hear, I enjoy a Brooklyn occasionally.

I shall have to take a trip to Morrison's, usually an Asda shopper myself.

That's funny. I am on the West side of the pond and I avoid most American "beer" at all costs. Well there are tons of smaller breweries that make really excellent beers but I don't know how much distribution most of those get around the globe.
