Hope the op and recovery go well. You gotta make it over for SQL Bits.

Rodders...


On the shed-dyule for Bits, and planning on it. Can't imagine what would cause issues, but you never know.

Only choice is whether to fly to Birmingham or Heathrow...

I avoid Heathrow whenever possible - it's a pretty unpleasant airport.

I just posted an issue with a VB Script Task (SSIS) and would appreciate the thoughts of anyone with experience.

My in-house Dev is telling me I can't do this in SSIS and need to have a web service built, which is rather annoying me. He knows as much about SSIS as I know about programming and informed me that just because SSIS uses Visual Studio as the framework for its design doesn't mean that SSIS can do all the things that a properly programmed web service can do. He's being really nice about the comment, but it just makes me want to prove him wrong.

Especially since I'm going to have to be the one to support any resulting problems and I don't know boo about web services.

Anyway, free internet cookies are available in the Tent in the Desert and the Hippo is off duty, so feel free to stop by. @=)

Tom,

Interesting, I don't have a huge amount of experience with flying abroad, so bearing that in mind... Can't say I'd had any real problems with Heathrow, other than it's just bigger than the other "London" airports and Birmingham, so take longer to get to gates etc. But I do know of a couple of the American speakers who avoid it when ever they can due to the security there and non UK citizens.
But certainly for SQL Bits in Telford, Birmingham (or more accurately Solihull International Airport - you can tell where I lived when I lived in the West Midlands ) will be a lot easier, depending on if flights go there and the cost difference with London / LHR

Rodders...

Well, I put in for another 6 months out here in Afghanistan. Looks like I'll miss another PASS Conference. I did put in for 2 weeks over Christmas as I really want to be home for the holidays this year.

I'll take it over Johannesburg International any day. Come to think of if, I prefer it to Atlanta too, more helpful staff and less unpleasant, officious immigration people.
Haven't had any major issues with Heathrow, prefer the ease of access to London over Gatwick.

Seoul South Korea
Especially when you have 40 minutes to catch your next flight.
You're first trying to find where to go, then have customs, then the well armed military.
And then there is the language barrier.
If I could speak the local language, I wonder if I would have stood out more.
And Qingdao was no picnic either.
They pulled me out, made me sit for about 15 minutes, then let me go.
Fortunate for me, I met someone going home for a visit, who was watching the whole thing.
So at least I knew I wasn't completely alone.
Kind of nerve wracking.

For the UK residents, what are my travel options for Birmingham -> Swansea?

Not yet certain if that's where I'll go, but may well be a place to start.

Stay safe and we'll see you at a SQL Saturday or something else when you get back.

Or maybe you should organize a SQL Saturday event over there and Red Gate can fly me over. I'll go.

Weird. I haven't found it to be especially horrible. I mean, it's an airport and they all pretty much suck. The one I dislike is LaGuardia. Every time I've been there it's been absolutely filthy. And I mean, creepy almost third world filthy with overflowing dysfunctional toilets and obviously dirty food vendors. It's pretty horrible. Last time I spent the entire wait between flights holding my bags and standing because I didn't want to touch anything.
