  • RE: A Christmas Bug

    I wouldn't call this a development bug, more like a requirements oversight. I see this type of thing a good bit where a business user complains about some aspect of...

  • RE: Keeping up with Technology

    I'd argue one reason technical people lose touch with technology when they become managers is because technology changes so fast. Thomas Edison and the other people you mentioned from the...

  • RE: Squeezing the DBA

    Grant Fritchey (9/3/2009)

    Everyone thinks they would act in a moral fashion in any given situation, but until you're there... you never know.

    Fully agree with that. It is very easy when...

  • RE: Over-Engineering

    blandry (7/15/2009)

    In my view, Over-Engineering is now the norm. How we got that way is really due to market control and dominance - today's younger developers have far fewer...

  • RE: The Sports Salary

    I've recently gained first-hand experience of this as I just found out a co-worker, who does the same work I do, is getting paid 30% more than me. Salary information...

  • RE: Manage Your Career

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones who's happy at his job! 😀 I knew when I was 10 when I first started programming that that was where my...

  • RE: Lassoing a Cloud

    I definitely like the prospect of cloud computing. The way I see it now it's an extension of the virtualization initiative that's taken over servers. In the beginning I didn't...

  • RE: Shapes in the Clouds

    This actually sounds like an exciting idea. Maybe not so much having your SQL Server hosted on a third-party, but basically this looks like SQL Server virtualization. Like Steve mentioned...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    James Goodwin (4/9/2009)

    Which of these statements:

    if(xpos & ypos)

    if(xpos && ypos)

    Is equivalent to:

    if(xpos and ypos)

    Both! LOL

    Well, depends on the data types involved and how stringent a type checker your compiler is.

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    James Goodwin (4/8/2009)

    I haven't yet come across any rational as to why the == operator was chosen as the equality operator instead of overloading the = operator and relying...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    Manie Verster (4/7/2009)

    Charles, you must be talking about the way Java, C# and other languages is working. To me it is plain stupid that you have to use == for...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    Paul Hunter (4/3/2009)

    Finally, I disagree with the writer that wants to be able to use any T-SQL expression any where he wants. A question back for him would be...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    David Walker (4/3/2009)

    Why put anyone through the extra effort to decipher, even if it's small? Why are so many people wedded to table aliases? The From statement might be "TableA...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    Are table aliases really that hard to decipher? Even if you had a query with 6 joined tables and every one of them using a single character table alias, all...

  • RE: The T-SQL Paradigm

    David Walker (4/3/2009)

    Why can't expressions be used anywhere a T-SQL variable can be used? For example, in the first parm of a RAISERROR call. The first parm must...
