Are the posted questions getting worse?

  • Serious question for the Thread.

    What do you need that I could do to help you out right now? I don't mean give you my toilet paper supply. I mean is there some virtual something or other I could do to help out? Classes, AMA, chats, videos, ?????

    I'm trying to find things apart from a webinar that will help out. Ideas?

  • Right now I need someone to watch the toddler so I can appropriately encrypted databases on 2 servers with a third party key holder. This is hard to do when someone keeps trying to get me involved in his playing.

    Actually, though, that would be an appropriate class. TDE with third party KMS. Because Google keeps pointing me to local TDE without the third party KMS which isn't helping me refresh my 9 month old memory from when I did this the last time.

  • One thing I've been struggling with is why certain databases don't meet the criteria to join availability groups.

    I've overcome most of the issues, but it would be cool to have a script (rather than go through the wizard every time) - or even just some advice so that we can build our own checks.

    It is super frustrating when I go to add a database to an AG and it says "does not meet criteria" - also drive configurautions - just a suggestion

  • maybe rather than live webinars, you could do what Microsoft virtual academy did... stick a 10 minute video up on line and we have it on demand. brent ozar did it dozens of times. stick it on youtube and post a link on here????

    Well, I personally can't help with the toddler or the TDE, but I'll bet I can find someone to help with the TDE. Starting the search.

    I've got tons of those. Happy to do more if that's the most helpful. Sadly the two specific questions that have come up, TDE & AG, are not my particular bailiwick.

  • Podcasts are just audio, though, right? How does a podcast assist when people can't see code or examples?

    Or are you talking about a different type of podcast?

    for me, podcasts have taught me Russian and Polish , that's nothing you can do visually- you get the basics and inspiration from the podcast and then go and learn yourself.

    everyone has their own way of learning and some people like reading, some like watching and some like hearing... personally for me I like to stick my headphones on during the day and if I hit a bit in a podcast that intrigues me then I pause and go do some investigation

  • Grant - just reading your wordpress blog - it strikes me that I'm missing some skills in monitoring SSRS and SSIS using XE... might be a nice topic

    we all take SSIS and SSRS for granted, but maybe we should monitor them more

  • Shifting gears a bit, today's editorial on Routine has a broken discussion link.  The editorial is all about the changes people are having to make because of recent world events.  The comic at the following link epitomizes my feelings on the subject, mostly because I didn't have much of a life (according to most people) to begin with and now I really digging it because my 10 minute commute went to 15 seconds. 😀

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".

    Not sure if you like cooking, but it's something that's a nice way to break away from other stuff. I find it very relaxing. Baked cookies last night, made some fried potatoes this am and left a bunch on the stove for others to enjoy while I'm working.

    I sometimes take a break from work and bake bread, pizzas or suchlike. My wife likes the results but I'm not the neatest in the kitchen. One day I was following some instructions, which said "Now leave the dough on a heavily floured surface". I took a look around the kitchen and thought "That will be the floor".
