RTFM365, Week 2 (AND week in review)

Hooboy…the super-structured format of the first two RTFM365 posts just isn’t sustainable for me. I’m going to have to go casual if I’m going to keep this up for another 50 weeks…  Ditto for the week in review posts.

By the way, did you know there’s a lunar eclipse tonight for those of us in North America? COOL. I believe the graphic we use for MidnightDBA is an image of the moon in full eclipse – in the umbra, which is the inner part of Earth’s shadow. (See also, Sky and Telescope.)


For the next year (-10 days now), I will read from SQL Server Books Online a little every day, and blog about it weekly. See my RTFM365 post for the full details on this project, and follow along with the series via the RTFM365 tag

Reading this week was in SQL Server 2008 Books Online unless otherwise noted. Please note: I’m exploring BOL and learning a little each day; I’m not here to read it to you or review it.  

Here’s what I read last week:


  • Reporting Services > Development > Report Design Basics, and clickthroughs (SQL 08 R2) (BOL Link).  Good for beginning SSRS development, of course, but lots of links for further reading in the text.
    Good for: Getting started with SSRS development, or studying same.
    Recommended for: All.

Days 13-17:

As I’ve said before…the real problem with a project like this isn’t getting bored. It’s always wanting to read more, and just not having the time I’d like. I hope to dedicate some real time this week to reading BOL.

Week in Review

This is my second week in a row (in the new season) that I haven’t put out a new blogcast, and I’m rather unhappy about that. I’ll try to get a little something together today, just to keep on track.  On the plus side, I did submit for SQL Rally , SQL Saturday Houston, and 24HOP WIT.


Happy days,
Jen McCown
