DROP TABLE IF EXISTS SomeSchema.SomeTable
ELSE DROP SCHEMA SomeSchema; # clearly schema in worse shape then we were told, start over time
# or maybe they chose the wrong database??? ooooops
SELECT "Time to run away";
Like all the new features, it's nice when you can dictate the db server version. Don't forget about the compatibility level setting of the database as I found out last month!
Now, if they could just get the query designer to remember the layout (x,y) of objects when I'm working on a query....every time, scroll down, drag tables/views up where I can see them all, and reposition so it makes sense...run query, if anything is wrong, repeat. Also, if it could remember it's last window state/position/screen that would convince me to start using newer versions of SSMS.
For me, SSMS 2016 fails with some MEF error every other time I need to use it, so I still do most work with 2014. I have 2017 which is OK but still slower to start than 2014. I really only use it to import Azure dbs.
I shared a google spreadsheet link to my boss.
Within a minute, I saw someone logging into the sheet. (Google Spreadsheet notifies this)
I hovered over the incoming user icon.. it says "Anonymous buffalo"
I had a burst of laughter, for a moment.
Guess it's better if google picks non-derogatory animal names for such labeling/avatar purpose.
I understand it's purely subjective & a cultural thing, but still companies should give a bit of importance to local culture/sentiments.
Not a programming question but a Windows 10 and an MSI not talking to each other.
Got a work customer that is sitting in a Domain with AD Servers sitting on Windows Server 2012 R2. Their computers are all on 1803 and we haven't allowed the rollout of 1809 after Octobers clusterelephant.
They have a program update from Corporate Headquarters I need to install but it is complaining that .NET 4.7 is required. 1803 comes with 4.7.2 included, I have confirmed it is there via Registry and also Windows Components.
The MSI log created gave me nothing useful to go on.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
