This month our gracious host is none other than Mickey Stuewe ( BLOG | TWITTER ) and she’s asked us to tell a story about Data Modeling Gone Wrong. I have to say that I really no nothing about a data model going wrong. Now hold on I am not done yet. You are wondering WTH?! is this girl still sick? Has she lost her marbles?

T-SQL Tuesday #43 – Hello, Operator?

Guess what it is that time again, time for T-SQL Tuesday. I missed last month and want to take a moment to tell you why. I had what I thought was the most beautiful post I have done so far. Heart felt, honest and encouraging for others. In a BIZZARE WordPress failure I lost the entire post. I tried so hard for the next 3 days to recreate it but couldn’t. I was dealing with hurt feelings of having a husband who responds with “I told you not to write in WordPress” and a dad who was a bit eager to sit in front of me and talk while I . . . → Read More: T-SQL Tuesday #43 – Hello, Operator?

SQL Community and Family

By now you should know how this writing challenge works, but in light of all the first timers who attended #summit12 I think I will give you a brief run down. The idea is to help people come up with reasons to write. Sometimes it is just hard to keep in the swing of things. T-SQL Tuesday was developed as a topic for everyone to write about and guess what it’s due on the second Tuesday of the month. This month Chris Yates (@YatesSQL | Blog) has asked us a very personal question “SQL Community / What Does the Community Mean To You?”

For me #sqlcommunity is different from #sqlfamily. . . . → Read More: SQL Community and Family

A DBA’s Ethics T-SQL Tuesday #30

This month Chris Shaw (blog|twitter) brings to us a deep topic for T-SQL Tuesday. He’s asking us to talk about DBA Ethics, you don’t have to be a DBA just a SQL Professional. Thanks Chris for hosting and getting us thinking.

So here we are at another fine T-SQL Tuesday. When Kerry mentioned that he was going to get busy and write last night I asked him what the topic was and he said “DBA Ethics”. From there my mind went crazy thinking about Ethics, how many times I have had mine challenged and what all of this would mean. He stayed up late and worked on his blog post . . . → Read More: A DBA’s Ethics T-SQL Tuesday #30
