Hi Guys, I just stopped by to ask a question

http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=115445

about performance tests migrating from SQl 200 to 2005 / 2008, and I dropped in the Yak Corral to check up on old chums.

I see the Post Count Congratulations continue a pace, and the Twit List is still a needed resource, and Stoad has been trying to break back into the asylum ...

I might just post in the Peak Oil thread too, 'coz that's something I feel strongly about ...

... but I hope you are all well and ticking along nicely. I'm distracted with other projects - some fairly significant construction of one sort and another around the house and garden ... but hopefully I'll have a some time to drop by now & again.

Cheers!

Typical isn't it, you leave you holiday home in the hands of your mates and no one even bothers to sweep the floor!

"how's life across the pond"

Been side tracked with other things. Changing the house to be more "green" - dramatically increased the insulation, replacing our two oil boilers with wood burning instead, installing solar panels and next year a wind turbine too (if wind speed monitoring tells me we have enough wind-power). Also now growing pretty much all the vegetables we need.

Ski season soon, eh? They reckon the snow fall, already, in the Alps is very good. You should all plan to come-on-over!

Next years "project" is to start bee keeping.

Do you have the typical british one glass layer window only?
Change them to two layer (or even three layer) glass windows for better insulation.

Hey Stop Rubbing it in.

I don't think I will even get on the slopes this year.

The company bought a new Estimating / scheduling Package and they Just converted it to SQL. Now I have to intigrate it with our Production control and accounting systems.

Oh and I have to use their interface instead of accessing the tables Directly. I tried to explane this was stupid as we are SQL to SQL and not something else but fell on deaf ears.

So I wont see daylight till spring.

Nope, uPVC Double glazing throughout. Had a thermal-image survey last night (cold-as-a-cold thing, and moon pretty full so we didn't have to stumble around too much!! so that was a lucky date to choose); looked very good - nothing that needs attention, which was a pleasant surprise to me.

I'm going to have to find something else to spend the reduced monthly mortgage payment savings on !!
