Finally, it has happened…

Last month I blogged about my absence from the blogosphere.  If you want, you can read about it again – here.  Granted, it has been a month and I still have been slacking.  I am hoping to turn a new leaf and post more regularly here in the next few weeks.

Since that last post I had been anxiously waiting.  The book seemed to keep getting delayed.  Yesterday, reality finally hit home.  It is so weird how much different it feels to finally have a book physically in my hands.

I am one that likes ebooks and I don’t normally have to be able to feel the pages of the book.  But this is one case where the ability to rifle the pages is so much more gratifying.  Finally the book is real!!

If you are interested, you can get the book here.

Oh and if you are wondering why I posted this picture, it is simple.  I didn’t want to take a picture of myself today holding the book and the other books pictured happen to be books that I had on hand because I have been reading them of late.

  • @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: #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
  • @flippbreezy: Any #SSIS people out there have any experience with @CozyRoc's Amazon S3 task for uploading files? #sqlhelp
