OK, this is weird.
Some guy just started a thread with as title a part of my signature.
The post itself is a reply from me taken from another thread.

When you look at his posts, they seems to be like spam, but done by a human.

Looks to me like some kind of bot that scrapes content from SSC forum pages and reposts snippets of it. Maybe he's testing it here.


You know, the temptation to start a new thread using your reply just about overwhelmed me. I resisted it barely, knowing that posting this reply about how difficult it was to resist would accomplish the same end...

I am reporting that as a threat.

For those who didn't read my last blog post (tsk tsk tsk): I'm changing jobs.
Today is the last day on my current job and Monday I start at a small consulting firm specialised in BI and CPM.

Exciting times ahead and I'm sure I'll learn a lot, as my new colleagues are all more experienced than I am.

Anyway, due to the switch I'm a few days without a laptop, so someone else will have to answer all those pesky SSIS questions
Also, is there someone with more knowledge about stock keeping who can pick up this thread:
http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1510050-147-1.aspx

I have no idea what he is trying to do (and have no time to invest further)




How to post forum questions.
Need an answer? No, you need a question.

I'm sure you will show them a few things too. Best wishes.

Last day of freedom. Starting dev job tomorrow. Hopefully will go well...
I'm unlikely to be around much during the week from now on (at least for a while), so could someone else please watch for and field corruption-related questions?

Koen, I'd wish you luck, but I don't think you'll need it. It's always nice working with people who know more/different stuff than you because you can learn. All the best.

Enjoy your last day before your first day. After the necessary HR stuff, tomorrow will be about listening to the pile of questions they've prepared for you. Hopefully they take you out to lunch as well.

Heh.... don't forget to study for the urine test.

It's not a federal mandate or anything, but everyone I've ever worked for does drug testing.
