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.

  • @SQLHA: @e90fleet And you should test your workload to see if using a secondary replica as a readable works for you. #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @e90fleet Do not use preferred nodes. It is a WSFC concept. And what you want to be the primary for readable is up to you. #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @e90fleet And what do you mean by 'preferred nodes' in this context? #sqlhelp
  • @SQLHA: @e90fleet Do not use just cluster. Too generic. FCI + AG? AG only w/ standalone instances? What is your config? #sqlhelp
  • @e90fleet: #sqlhelp What should be the preferred nodes in setup? should i also configure asynch nodes for read only? 2/2
  • @e90fleet: #sqlhelp i have 4 node multisubnet clust., 2 nodes in primary (synch) and 2 nodes (asynch) in dr DC's. I need to conf read only routing. 1/2
  • @mike_walsh: That's how full of awesome sauce your script is Robert! That I want to cry when it isn't available last minute :) @SQLSoldier #sqlhelp :)
  • @mike_walsh: But it seems like @SQLSoldier has changed his site around lately. It's not downloadable and I don't seem to have a copy :-) #sqlhelp 2/2
  • @mike_walsh: Noooo!! (in the Darth Vader voice) I normally suggest clients use the @SQLSoldier DBA_CopyLogins.sql script for AG login sync #sqlhelp 1/2
  • @arvisam: @gordoncoulter with transactions and tablockx concurrency can be addressed. Worth testing at least. #sqlhelp
