Welcome to TSql2sday issue #35, this time hosted by me…

It’s a bit last minute, as I stepped in to help Adam out, so bear with me. As always, thanks to Adam for starting this off, I’ve posted a few articles on previous runs, and have found other people’s posts to be really interesting. I hope this follows in the same way.

Over the past couple of days I’ve been attending a training course in Paris, and one evening, to relax I watched ‘Soylent Green‘, a classic science fiction film. If you’ve not seen it, I recommend it, and go and watch it …

So, what I’d like to know is, what is your most horrifying discovery from your work with SQL Server?

We all like to read stories of other people’s misfortunes and, in some ways they help to make us better people by learning from them. Hopefully, there is nothing as bad as Charlton Heston’s discovery, but there may be in its own way.

A couple of extra thoughts for motivational thinking…

Soylent Brown – You did a post, Great Job!!

Soylent Orange – You did a post, it made me wince!

Soylent Green  – You did a post, it made me wince, and it included some T-SQL.

Do you have the words straight?
