In early January, I wrote a little tribute to my wife for the awesome job she does when making cakes.  There was a lot of good feedback from that.  You can go back and read it from here, if you like.  This is a short follow-up to that article.  This is mostly because I think she has outdone herself again.

Just a short while ago was our oldest daughters birthday.  She just turned two.  Last year she got a ballerina music box as her birthday cake.  This year she got this:

I think she did a fantastic job on this.  The towers are all covered in colored white chocolate.  The cake was really tasty too!!

Here is another one from last year that didn’t make it onto the first article.  This is the tractor that was made for my niece.  This was another birthday cake.  We weren’t able to be there for the party (traveling back home at the time).  From what I hear though, people were impressed and my niece was quite happy with the cake.

This one was harder than one might think.  The hard part is getting the cake to stand off the ground and appear like the tractor is on wheels.  She was frustrated with it – but did a good job.

  • @SQLSoldier: @mvelic Yes, but then I pointed out that they were using nolock and SSIS isn't. The matching records were not committed. #sqlhelp #TrueStory
  • @mvelic: It's just maddening because this lookup has *always* worked in the past. It's just now deciding to not recognize matches. #sqlhelp
  • @mvelic: Has anyone just seen an SSIS Lookup fail to make matches? You know the matches exist, but it doesn't connect them and it fails? #sqlhelp
  • @banerjeeamit: @MattPgh No. Current processing report is not visible. This is visible in RunningJobs table but not the stats breakdown. #sqlhelp
  • @forhakim: #sqlhelp in Visual Studio SSDT is there a way to make it NOT show table designer, only the script, when I edit a table?
  • @MattPgh: @banerjeeamit Will the current report show up in ExecutionLog? whatever processing is happening did not finish yet. #sqlhelp
  • @banerjeeamit: @MattPgh Look at the time processing and rendering in the logging table: http://t.co/1n2ZX5Ywwi #sqlhelp
  • @banerjeeamit: @MattPgh Also, CPU time can be consumed due to rpt processing. This is available thru the ExecutionLogStorage table #sqlhelp
  • @banerjeeamit: @MattPgh Using XEvents or profiler u can see which stmt r CPU intensive? This wud gv u the cpu time consumed by the DB queries. #sqlhelp
  • @MattPgh: Is there a way to tell exactly what SSRS service is doing when it has CPU pegged to 100%? like a "what running" query in sql. #sqlhelp
