Flipped it over and checked price: $69.99 Phew...
Book is only about 400 pages (minus index and the rest).
Add-Ons To Convince (Trick) You
The book has interior color that is completely useless in an attempt to justify the price.

Now, since I'm a Prime member I can get that book in 2 days for $47.99. That's $22!
B&N will ship it to me in a couple of days for $59.03 undercutting their own store but still can't beat Amazon. Not sure why they can't/don't.
B&N has to figure something out or Amazon is going to destroy them.
Also interesting and somewhat related is that I notice that Packt Publishing is literally flooding the tech book market. I've read a number of their books in the past and they always fall flat.
I won't even begin to read a Packt book now. They even changed their design (I believe so you wouldn't recognize the books are by them).
I am a SafariBooks online member and every book that comes out is available there very fast.
I often wonder how the bricks & mortar shops can sustain themselves under these conditions.
I hope they do though and I try to spend money at the local B&N to keep them going.
They do get good business for coffee, etc. and they are a great place to meet a relax a while with a beverage.
Over the years I've spent a lot of money at B&N because I can go in and physically scan the book and see if it's something I want and in that respect it's great. But the sharp increase in prices has made it financially difficult for me to pay those prices.
I too hope they continue to keep there doors open but I'm afraid they are going to fall by the wayside in favor of online book sales.

Who are they? I remember hearing that name at some point, I thought they'd gone out of business. Weren't they something called a "bookstore" that I vaguely remember my father taking me to when I was a kid? Maybe that was something called a "library." And they have technical books? Wow! Are they written on stone tablets?
I was doing a query on a table with 8.8 million records, joining to a table with 2.7 million records, and then joining to a table with less than 1000 records, I got an OutOfMemory exception.
In the grand scheme of things, this ain't a huge dataset. It's nice to know that SQL Server is such a delicate house of cards...

Well, that depends. A JOIN would combine all records of each set in all permutations. It would probably crash anywhere. Even during the calculations phase, it may be holding a shyteload of data. Profiler, anyone?
Yet, I know you know better than that. If my fearless leader were handy (An amazing DBA), he'd know how to make things right.
My first guess would be do it in two steps. First the 1K with one of the tables into a temp table and then the other table with the temp table.
