Here is what I really want to say in response to the OPs last post in another thread:

GilaMonster (4/5/2013)
sql-lover (4/5/2013)
So I wanted to open a case and review, without paying, but don't know the process or link to follow.


If you want to log a case with product support, you will have to pay for it. There are some cases where if it's a new bug they don't charge, but that's the exception. Basically, unless you have premier support or some free support cases from MSDN subscription, opening a case will cost.

See the Assisted Support Options on this page:
http://support.microsoft.com/ph/1044/en-us


Hmm, I see...

So, if my Cluster is experiencing issue addressed by KB2718576. How can I be 100% sure that's the case? rely on myself? ... I mean, it was fully patched, SAN is an approved hardware and fully patched as well. I see no other explanation, based on what happened, but apply the hotfix.

I just want to make use of the rights I have as a legit software owner. MS products are not cheap and come with warranty.


Be sure you read the entire EULA. Also understand you don't really own the software but license it from Microsoft.

Hmmm. Rules of first sale apply to software licenses too, so there is a sense in which you own the software. Also, unless the seller makes it clear before accepting payment that what is happening is a licensing operation he will fing that in European law he has sold what the customer thought he was buying. As for EULAs, the courts have made it clear that they will only apply if they are fully disclosed to the user before he makes any payment.

Of course none of this (except first sale doctrine) really matters, because MS can afford better lawyers than the average consumer can. And none of it applies to software professionals, who are assumed to be aware of the standard practises of their profession, including the usual terms of software licenses and the almost universal practise of licensing software, not selling it.

An unusual clause in an EULA might still run into trouble though, and in any case many EULAs contain clauses which are contrary to law in many countries in which the license is sold. Companies like MS are clever enough protect themselves from having EULAs found to be completely invalid because some clause is illegal in the relevant jurisdiction by having separation of issues clauses and disclaimers of applicability where the relevant jurisdiction forbids some restrictions of liability, but some other companies' EULAs that failed to do that have been thrown out in total in the courts.

Am I the only person who gets 'I don't think that's true' replies to their posts from a certain person and am I the only one annoyed by it?

I can justify and explain just about anything I state here, but sometimes the time required to produce a detailed counter-claim is just too much.

Well, at least he hasn't come back after you debunked his nonsense about write-ahead logging. At least not yet.

Hotel booked for SQLBits. Almost forgot all about that so a nice refreshing 20 minute walk in the morning!


I'm in Castle Marina Premier Inn, which according to Google maps is 2.6 miles away by car or a 45 minute walk


I'm at the Hilton brand hotel somewhere nearby.


Cool. Steve are you about for the whole event or just the Friday?

Chris, Grant and Cadavre are you all about for the 3 days or not?

Rodders...


Arrive late friday for the saturday sessions, probably leave late saturday.


Grant / Steve / Chris / Cadavre;

I'm there for the whole thing, but will probably not be hanging around afterwards on Saturday. I should get there sometime Wednesday afternoon, just waiting to hear about times for setting up and the ritual that is bag packing, as I'm helping out.

Rodders...

Chris,

Arh um, well, no!

Richard was a little quick off the mark to put my name down. Just started a new role, haven't moved yet so staying up during the week so didn't have a chance to plan anything. Hopefully once I've moved and settled in I can give some thought to a couple of topics I had going round in my head.

I think Richard has stepped in and is going to present instead. I am planning on going though, to give Richard a chance to ridicule me!

Rodders...

Anyone have experience with Dynamics AX 2009 and using stored procedures with it instead of the cursor-ridden DAX "language"?
