No doubt, Brent Ozar's sp_Blitz and Ola Halengren's Maintenance.sql, both covering SQL Server 2012 and 2014 CTP (what amazing human beings these people are!).

I think my biggest memory of 2013 was breaking into the world of SQL and BI from a completely unrelated part of the business I work for. I've been lucky enough to have been given an opportunity to train and learn, from essentially scratch, as I go. I'm now terrified by how little I know, but at the same time, raring to learn as much as I can.


On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

As someone who has looked after SQL server backups, restorations and writtena lot fo scripts to do queries, inserts etc from vbscript... this year, I wrote my first SPs and took a step into SQL programmability and started to get SQL to do some of the work which I had been doing programatically in a long winded way for a long time!

My best memories so far are finding that I can't see Brent Ozar's sp_blitz as http://www.brentozar.com/blitz/ is reporting a "404 Error - Page Not Found" error. The second memory is Steve's crazy avatar/profile image.

Best memories are how many people in this community help each other, especially on line. Some of the crazy MidnightDBA videos helped keep me sane through the year.

Can anyone else confirm that the content section of http://www.brentozar.com/blitz/ is down with a 404 Error - Page Not Found? Brent's arguing that it's just me and I badly need to prove him wrong. So, he'll fix the error of course.. : )

My favorite memory is hearing that my stuff is other people's favorite memories, heh.

My least favorite memory: trying to troubleshoot people's computers and networks as they reach my site.

See what I mean! Someone needs to help Brent and I get this resolved before the new year. It's clearly disturbing to both of us. I just hate it when things don't work!

Edit: Doh! I just hit F5 on that page and now it's working as of 9:27 am. Brent, did you fix that?

Upgrading a production system I helped install in 2002 from SQL2000 to Win2008R2/SQL2008R2. Glad that project is complete.
