  • RE: Model Database

    Hugo Kornelis (2/22/2012)

    I'd rather say that almost half the people already knew the actual correct answer:

    Yes and No: 47%


    From recollecting very likely the same discussion as you, I looked for...


    Steve Jones - SSC Editor (2/9/2012)

    Your code does return the same values, but I'm not sure pre-pending or appending is the issue. I could be wrong, but it seems that...


    From a coding perspective (having a random salt parameter), this URL to a post on has a nice twist to the matter.

    this is the output of your query, just wanted to know what you mean by "exact same results"....?

    The result is exactly the same as when running Steve's code...


    Koen Verbeeck (2/9/2012)

    but the MSDN link doesn't really back-up the explanation as it doesn't mention salt anywhere.

    I'd second this; it's my understanding that concatenating a fixed string as salt (in...

  • RE: Querying Geometry Information

    L' Eomot Inversé (2/3/2012)

    so what is the correct case mixture? Presumably "geometry" going by Hugo's note, which seems to make SQL Server's type naming a bit inconsistent.

    From what I've...

  • RE: Querying Geometry Information

    Hugo Kornelis (2/3/2012)

    But this question is specifically focussed on testing knowledge of case sensitiviy, so in this case, not considering the collation of the database is a bad oversight. Especially...

    I need my points back lol. 🙂



    Thanks for a nice and easy question.

    I propose to switch the answers #4 and #5. The answer All of above becomes correct in this order.

  • RE: Computed Columns 1

    Hugo Kornelis (1/31/2012)

    Meh, I don't like questions where people who really understand the subject have a 50/50 chance of getting it right because they have to second-guess the author's intention.


  • RE: Better Backups

    Jostein Saethern (1/22/2012)

    Good question, but wrong answer. Should be "Enable backup compression" and "Create a user that is classified into a limited CPU workload group in Resource Governor"
