They did a movie too - wasn't too good, but I thought it was worth watching because I loved the series so much.


The movie's good if you watch it with no assumptions that it has anything at all to do with the book, other than the name.

That tends to apply to rather a lot of movies!

I'm going to be working on a website that is currently on a Linux machine that has HTML, CSS and some javascript. The site needs a database. If I port it to a Windows server, I can use SQL Server. If I leave it on a Linux machine, I have to use My SQL. I don't think anything will break if we move it to Windows, but I haven't worked with the web in long enough that I'm not positive. I'd much prefer to work on SQL Server, but don't know if MySQL has any reasons to avoid it like the plague.

Any opinions?

Perhaps because it's owned by Oracle?



My mantra: No loops! No CURSORs! No RBAR! Hoo-uh!

My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?

My advice:
INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?
The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.


Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?
Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!
Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.
Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!

Maybe you could use mariadb.org instead of MySQL. It is drop in placement.
Is two servers out of question? One for db and one for application.

Great comic. Still want to see World War Z, but just because I'm a The Walking Dead fan (series and comics), so a zombie movie always scores with me.
But now I also want to read the book of course

I have been around, just not as much. Not a lot time when you spend most of your time working or sleeping, every day.

Things out here in Afghanistan are going well. Sort of hard to believe I just finished week 5, but then the days do just roll into one another.
