Is it bad form, if you create a QotD, to list your own article as a reference?

If it's a good article? No, not at all. I've done it in the past.
That being said, I do always prefer an official MS reference. But if there isn't one, a third-party reference that is solid enough (read: based on other MS material, or equipped with enough code samples to prove that the statements are true) will do just fine.

I don't know your article, but I do know you - and that's enough for me to assume that your article will meet the bar. Easily!

Might not be bad form, but I can just image the list of those who whine and cry "give me my points".

So then ask some one else to be the author of the QOD or QODs who then can site your article(s) as justification.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

It's probably better to find another one just so there's input from two different people but if it's the best reference (that can be found without a quick search) I would say go for it. No sense in wasting time when you have a good, accurate article that you can find quickly.

Wonder when this was changed?
Granted I haven't worked in Oracle itself since 7b...


It was always the case in Oracle 7 and before as well (ie when I last worked with it, around 1996). Which is why I once thought that truncate couldn't be rolled back in MSSQL either.

I wouldn't mind Smile. Still, an msdn reference, if there is any relevant, would be a good addition.

And 34% of them are for "you can never rollback a truncate table statement"

Maybe they are Oracle refugees? Hehe http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Raw+Materials/71108/


w00t AHHH! I've been discovered! Oh well, I've been at least partially in the SQL Server world since 2000 so I guess I should know better by now.
