I've just realised. If someone reports a SQL Server bug to Microsoft, they can post it as a QOTD to see how much of a problem it is....

Question: You're moving a data file to a new location on the third Thursday of a leap year, and realise it's a full moon tonight. Whilst the data is copying, you accidentally hit CTRL+FN+F10, then spill coffee on your keyboard. What is the result?

a. Your server immediately shows a blue screen of death and collapses irretrievably in an expensive heap of scrap metal
b. The data finishes copying fine
c. You turn into a werewolf


Subsequent forum comments:

- Well, it works fine for me
- Can't find it documented anywhere
- The theoretical right answer should be c, so who cares what happens in practice
- Well, it works fine for me
- Hmm. Can see a difference between versions of SQL Server. Is this a bug?
- Well, it works fine for me
More comments:
- This is a problem on Thursday 19th January 2068 (the next '3rd Thursday of a leap year which is also a full moon') so I think MS should urgently work on a fix and issue it as a forced hidden upgrade to all customers.
- Well, it works fine for me
- The questioner didn't specify whether the coffee was decaffeinated.

P.S.: How can you tell I've got an interest in astronomy and various calendars?

Could be because you are a lycanthrope? :D

Since this won't occur until 2068 we are in the clear. The Mayan calendar says that Dec 21 2012 will be the end. I believe that corresponds whith our sun being in the center of the Galaxy. I guess that also takes care of the Social Security problems! ;)

Picard is an arrogant.... I just opened the pathway. He gets the credit for the demise of your insignificant world. I have odds that your race doesn't make it to Dec 21, 2012, but if you do, the experience will be thrilling. :D


By the way what was the QOTD, anyways? Oh yeah it worke for me in 2000. But then again I am Q. ;)

Nah. Just that the Mayans concentrated too much on chocolate and the coca leaf to expect a future later than 2012. The world'll carry on after that date, but the Mayans just won't notice it ;).

**Disclaimer - this is not a serious attempt at racial profiling, and anyway, I'm with them on the subject of chocolate**
