You shrunk a database? How could you???



I put mine in the oven.

And sometimes I accidentally do one when I put it through the wash on a cold cycle.

So you have a shrinky-dinks database?

Or am I the only one that remembers shrinky-dinks?

Not the only one. In fact, we got some for the kids at Christmas last year.

Here is some on amazon.

Nope, I always wanted Shrinky-Dinks, but the folks never got them for us kids for X-Mas or the like...

So now I work on re-living my childhood, mostly through purchasing expensive LEGO sets that I never would've gotten as a kid (seriously looking at getting the Super Star Destroyer kit in a couple weeks)

Can't see any arrogance showing through from here, commendable considering the unruliness of the kids in your classroom today.

Strange as it may seem in this day and age of cheap HD space, there are still places that refuse to provide enough space for their data forcing desperate people to use DBCC SHRINKFILE


Yes, our SAN admins still look at me like I'm mad when I ask for 100GB of extra storage on their £200k+ SAN. Attitudes to data seem to be stuck in the past and I think a lot of people are getting caught out by the recent explosion in data.

I use exponential curves to forecast disk usage on data warehouses now as there's no business appetite to (ever) archive data and new data sources pop up all the time. I'd rather have one argument about why we need to buy and reserve 30TB of database storage in the next 3 years than a hundred about the odd 100GB here and there.

Btw, was great to meet Grant and Steve last Friday. I must make an effort to attend more events! Unfortunately, there was problem at work and I had to bail before lunch, so missed out on seeing Gail (and a free beer!).


Agree with you on both points Howard - you'd think the SAN admins had to pay for the extra space themselves.

Great day last Friday - many thanks to all concerned.

Back in the office today after a week and half road trip - SQL Skills, SQL Saturday Dublin and 3 days of the UK SQL Relay...

450 emails and a two hour meeting, I'm finally caught up! And read the last 5 pages of the Thread (10 per page format - just for those reading 50 a page!) So I can do some work tomorrow! Yippee!

Rodders...

Steve Jones - SSC Editor (6/24/2013)
Just so the rest of you can feel jealous, I got a hug from Gail and a handshake from Rodney last week :)


I can't top that recently but I still have the piece of rebar that Rodney presented to me back in 2011.


Steve - you only got a handshake because of the desk you were sitting behind!
Hope SQL in The City went well. I hear the last seassion with Gail, Grant and yourself was the highlight.

Jeff you sure it was me? I remember having to looking up what one was as it was slightly lost in translation. Actually you came up in conversation at the Southampton Relay event. One of the speakers mentioned Numbers table, and pointed a couple of folks to your article here on SSC!

Cheers,

Rodders...
