The joy and fun of migrating DBs to a new server...

Trying to get in touch with the people who need to update the application, people potentially trying to stall to make other people look bad, people who never get back with you...

The backup->copy->restore->check users->update backup software process...

What fun...


I always enjoy the biz stall tactics
I know what you mean. I also love the ever-popular "When I said it should do this, I meant it should do that" syndrome when they didn't think things through to begin with. Fun times...

Consolas 10pt usually. 18-28pt if I'm presenting, depending on where.


I like 9 pt. FIXEDSYS old VGA IBM PC-style font from Win95 or earlier. Easy to read and distinguish I and 1 and l etc., tiny file only 6kb vgafix.fon. Pretty.

Enjoying trying to work with rs.exe to automate some report deployment issues. Especially enjoying the fact that the .rds XML format used when creating data sources in VS/BIDS/SSDTBI 2008 is not compatible with the format used by ReportingServices2010.CreateCatalogItem.

Visual Studio converts them. OTOH, it may force you to fork the project in TFS, if you are using it.

It should be the last font on the dropdown, Luis.


How sure are you about that?


Pretty sure, I don't think there is but one interface. Or are they language specific?


Maybe there is a locale difference. The south v. the North. ;)


Maybe. How long do you think we can keep this up before someone gets annoyed at us? Obfuscation is my life.


I think they are just ignoring it


Clearly, some of you need more to do at work. Shouldn't you be off answering questions or something?
Fortunately, it all translates easily enough if you just click "Quote"



It's almost lunch time on a Friday, I'm hungry, and I'm waiting on someone to send me a description of the columns in a txt file that I need to import. My motivation for beginning new tasks that do not involve gustation is low.


Odd that last one auto-translated for me in the browser


I was wondering why I had so many thread notifications in my inbox...

I just love how 2012 uses VS 2010 for lack of BIDS in 2012.
Seems like a bait and switch of sorts.
I wonder what they did in 2014......

VS 2018. You can't do anything with it until then.

You now have 2013, and MSFT promised to keep up with the SQL Server development -- it is now the Servers and Tools division.

If you feel like kicking some asses over there, please let me know.

We can swap war stories. I'm currently engaged moving all our servers "into the cloud".

Forgive my if I sound a little air-headed and make insubstantial comments.
