This is my first year in the automotive industry. I must say that for the most part, I don't like being forced to take my vacation at specfic times...except for when those specific times arrive and I don't have to work!

I did have one optional week of vacation time that I used already - so really not a bad deal at all. The "Christmas Week" shutdown will really be longer than a week - Dec 21 through Jan 1. It's a welcome break that I have never had in other industries.


I'd agree. This has happened in the tech industry a few times, and to my wife. Not thrilled, but we made do.

Sometimes with that many time zones, it's better to be able to stay up.
Hope you get settled in and stay safe!

Get some rest.
Sunrise, new adventure.
My new adventure is rebuilding an automatic transmission.
Been 40 years since I had one apart.

Godspeed, my brother. Please keep in touch.

It is a common phrase "whatever I can do," but I do mean it. Call me anytime, even if it is 3:30 am in Redmond.

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...


Sorry. Different Rodney.

Thanks for the referral on the Tally Table article.


I've lost count of how many poeple I've pointed to that article.

Was it Mr Landrum by any chance?
I was a substitute Rodney for Karla at SQL Bits, when she was having her photo taken!

Rodders...

You know, reading the end result of this topic: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1468850-2799-1.aspx, I'm wondering why MS doesn't provide a pair of radio buttons in several different places...

Radio button 1 -> MB
Radio button 2 -> GB

I could understand it if servers with a couple hundred MB were still the norm, but now-a-days being able to get servers with a few hundred GB...

Where would I put these buttons?
The memory settings, and when setting the size of files for MDF / LDF / NDFs, at least.

I think the OP doesn't know enough to know they aren't answering your questions.
