  • Blog Post: If you absolutely must call a WCF service from inside your database, here’s how you do it...

    When I was an operations DBA, this would probably fall into the category of “just because you can do something, doesn’t mean that you should”: Call a WCF Service from SQLCLR (by Niels Berglund) However, there are probably a couple of good scenarios where I might advocate for doing just this in future...
  • Blog Post: Now with more open and soon with more source!

    Over the holidays, the SQL Server community & samples test team in China has been migrating all of our open product samples bugs out of our internal VSTS bug tracking database and into the VSTS database which backs the CodePlex TFS system. There are some non-bug work items which will be migrated...
  • Blog Post: Searching for Mexican Food... on CodePlex?

    Tagging is all fun and games until somebody gets hurt, right? Actually, like so-called Google-bombing, it can be pretty funny. Have you ever been guilty of surfing while hungry? It appears that somebody was pretty hungry while they were wandering around CodePlex looking for something. No idea what. But...
  • Blog Post: SQL Server 2008 RTM samples are up on CodePlex now.

    A little snafu delayed things, but they're all signed, sealed and delivered now. I only had to skip a little of the launch party to get them out the door... Microsoft SQL Server Community & Samples - Release: SQL Server 2008 RTM Enjoy!
  • Blog Post: Cool (Free, Open) Tools: SQL RSS

    Even if nobody has asked you for an RSS feed of data in one or more of your databases, it won't be long before they do! When they do, you can grab this configurable, easy to use data-driven RSS feed widget. A couple ideas for using this application: Business intelligence updates delivered to Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Be there. Do that. Get the T-shirt.

    Since I've never been to an MVP Global Summit, Tech*Ed or the SQL PASS summit, I'm looking forward to going this year. Since I will have T-shirts, I'm hoping that I won't have to be lonely. Heh. SQL Heroes : The T-shirts have arrived. If you don't have a clue about what kind of project to start, keep...
  • Blog Post: Calling all SQL Heroes!

    I'm hoping that I can keep my blogs straight, but for the duration of the contest, I'll be blogging in two places: here and there . Here will be all the normal stuff you don't read anyway, and over there is your chance to convince me to give you a Windows Home Server. (Well, convince me and the other...
  • Blog Post: {Open Source} Heroes Happen Here?

    They certainly do. I'm glad to see initiatives like this! {Open Source} Heroes Happen Here If you want a Hero Hack Pack, you'd better ask 'em for one soon. While supplies last...
  • Blog Post: Office is now more open?

    Having been involved with a government archival project, I can say that format longevity is a serious concern. Particularly in the case of governments, documents may be required to be archived for hundreds of years. Indeed, many local, state, national and international governments are actively in the...
  • Blog Post: How do I use Feature X in SQL Server?

    Buck's got a great point about how SQL Server's development themes are managed from the top down: It isn't a matter of thinking up single features or changes to the product, it's a cohesive direction we all want to go. Carpe Datum : Why on earth are you working on that? Reading his blog always make me...
  • Blog Post: A cool DP sample that couldn't make it into the out of the box for some reason...

    Although we've been putting the SQL Server product samples in CodePlex for quite a while, I'm not sure why this one didn't wind up "in the (out of the) box" space. Go figure. Sending BLOB Data to SQL SERVER Using IROWSETFASTLOAD and ISEQUENTIALSTREAM (Microsoft SQL Server Native Client team...
  • Blog Post: FILESTREAM, Windows Vista and you.

    I won't complain about yet-another-configuration-stored-procedure, since I hold out hope that managing FILESTREAM's status at the server level will be rolled into sp_configure or DDL before RTM... but this is me not holding my breath. *sigh* Anyway, if you want to use FILESTREAM data on your SQL Server...
  • Blog Post: SQL Server gurus! Get connected to CodePlex.

    First off, CodePlex is looking for developers. That seems like the best way to get plugged in. Heh. I have a vested interest in seeing you top-notch coders working on CodePlex. I know several great coders out there; you know who you are, so apply! More on my vested interest later. Looking for developers...
