  • Blog Post: To whom it may concern (code comments)

    I thought I was the only one who left warnings in my code for future maintainers... Or maybe Brian inherited one of my previous projects. Heh. Funniest code comment ever... Yes, today’s my last day in SQLBU, and I’ve left more than a few WARNING code comments alongside the TODOs and UNDONEs.
  • Blog Post: I think I've found my new sport... Chess Boxing.

    Although I might hold out for MMA Chess, this still sounds like fun. I still play chess online with my Dad and brothers, but this would add a whole new combative dimension to the game... and require a whole new level of commitment. "I took a lot of body-blows in the fourth round and that affected...

  • Blog Post: Souvenirs

    Bobbie was sure right about the best laid schemes and a' that. I certainly felt about mouse-sized towing a 5x8 trailer in my two-wheel drive minivan crawling through the Rocky Mountains this time! So much for blogging the move from Houston to Redmond in real time, though... I blame that on the streptococcal...
  • Blog Post: If you have to look it up more than once, blog it.

    The corollary of "if you have to do it more than once, automate it" is "if you have to look it up more than once, blog it." So I'm blogging the Data Dude links (so I don't have to look 'em up again later). Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals Add-on for Visual...
