#TSQL2SDAY – Data Modeling Gone Wrong

Here we are again, time for TSQL2sDay. This is actually the 72nd one, that is long enough to finance and pay off a car these days. 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? I’ve never had these issues because:

It always comes to me as a surprise that it is TSQL Tuesday again. I guess time just slips by so quickly these days.

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?

TSQL2sDay #37 JOIN

 

Well this is quiet a request for our T-SQL Tuesday. This is to JOIN someone who is already writing a post a day this month all related to JOIN. WOW! I had no idea there was so much to talk about. So if you are JOIN curious like me check this out:

A Join A Day

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

TSQL2sDay – Jack of All Trades…

Argenis Fernandez was ever so kind as to host TSQL2sDay this month and the question he asked was:

 

Are you specialized? On something? Or anything at all? Has that been a good or a bad thing? Why? Are you the SQL guy at work? Or the one who does everything? Do you code? And configure wireless routers at work also? If you had to pick one thing to specialize on, what would it be?

So, in this installment of T-SQL Tuesday I’d like to ask you to blog about your experience. Tell us why you specialized, or why you’d like to specialize. If you don’t think that specialization . . . → Read More: TSQL2sDay – Jack of All Trades…

#TSQL2sDay Resolutions

As part of my 2011 resolutions I feel the need to participate in T-SQL Tuesday (we’ll get to more about that later). First some of you reading this are expecting a recipe and some FOOD PORN, sorry not today I am a geek and sometimes like to show that off and today is it!!! T-SQL Tuesday was started by Adam Machanic (guess what? He has a blog and is on twitter!) and the basic rule is that someone new each month host and chooses a topic.
