  • Reply To: SQL Server installation with British English

    Can't disagree, Mike. Not the first time, of course, but a bit of a pity nonetheless.

    Thanks for your help, btw. Irrespective of getting a satisfactory conclusion one of the good...

  • Reply To: SQL Server installation with British English

    With respect, Mike, that's steering away from what I originally asked.

    In my original post, I recognised that there are workarounds potentially available. However, I asked for help in how to...

  • Reply To: SQL Server installation with British English

    A good call, but sadly I already found a post elsewhere on t'interweb about that. I can confirm the box is set to UK and British English throughout, and that...

    You're a steely-eyed missile man, sir. Much appreciated.

    Thanks, all

    OK, I've done a bit of checking and the browsers I've tried using for downloads (Edge, Firefox, Chrome) are all set to en-GB, although changing to de-DE doesn't change...

    ...Indispensable equals risk, and companies don't like that, so will attempt to reduce the risk so it's manageable. If that means reducing their capabilities in the process,...

  • RE: A Lifetime of Software

    Eric M Russell (5/11/2016)

    Because they grew up in an era without cubicles, the younger wave of IT recruits are (generally) more socially adept than those of us with gray hair;...

  • RE: Combining R and SQL Server to diagnose performance bottlenecks

    Well done on a good introductory article.

    From my point of view, what's really important is that R and RStudio now offer a comprehensive suite of statistical tools that can be...

    Jim Youmans-439383 (12/19/2013)

    At my last job, we had a use it or lose it policy. If you did not use your two weeks, then you lost it. The...
