    Re: Frickin' Lasers for Eyes!

    That's the bit that impressed me about this whole thing: they didn't try to pressure you into going for the more expensive procedure.

    If it all goes horribly wrong, do they give you a jar to bring...
  2. Breakpoints in SSIS not being hit

    I've inherited an SSIS package which is really rather horrible. It is now falling over on a particular task, and I'm trying to put a berakpoint in the script to find out what's happening. However,...
  3. Re: Passing an encrypted password into SQL Server from VB.Net

    In all honesty, as a developer myself I'm fairly relaxed about developers being able to see the password. Unfortunately, one of our team has been using these credentials to make changes to a database...
  4. Passing an encrypted password into SQL Server from VB.Net

    We have a few VB.Net applications that connect to a SQL Server 2008 database using SQL Server authentication. Basically, we have a config file that contains an encrypted password, and our...

    Re: All perspective I guess...

    Did that really come as news to you, though? It's something that I assumed everyone was aware of.

    Many, many countries don't use computerised systems at immigration control, particularly at...

    From this side of the pond, the biggest problem with US politics would seem to be the money involved. This in turn leads to political campaigning being unbelievably vicious (if TV dramas are to be...

    That's a little mean if it's always the same bunch of people who help you out.

    Hmmm - I'm not sure whether I've successfully rated your posts. I just get the message that "you must spread some reputation around before rating this post" or words to that effect. I got the same...
  9. Re: Join versus Where Exists

    Guys - thank you. The execution plan was fairly non-committal, probably because there's no actual data in the Agent table anymore (someone helpfully dropped and recreated it), but it did look as if...
  10. Re: Join versus Where Exists

    szlamany - Our coding standards say to never use SELECT *, so I tend to stick with that even if it doesn't matter.

    It's SQL 2008 R2, and it's to be used for a view that will only be used as part...
  11. [RESOLVED] Join versus Where Exists

    I want to get data out of a single table, restricted to where an ID field exists on another table. The ID may exist more than once on the second table, so doing a join would cause me to get duplicate...

    As someone who comes from Britain but not from England, I would disagree. There's a massive difference.

    I promoted you. ;)

    No, I actually come from the Western Highlands and I know a few McIlhinney families, so I assumed you were from a similar area.



    Fin? I'd have thought "Fitz".

    Funky was right - it should be JMcI. Just look at the jackets of Scottish football players and managers for examples. That said, if it doesn't bother JMcI, it shouldn't bother the rest of us.*

    Re: Advantages of Smoking

    I would have to disagree with that. I started smoking at 13, and was smoking 20 a day from the age of about 16 until I gave up at 26. The first week was tough, but that was it - I've never craved one...

    I've never even heard of JSON, which is a little worrying. Time for some research, I reckon.

    Bizarrely, it was actually Germany turning on Russia that made the difference. If they had kept to their non-aggression pact, they would have been able to commit all their forces towards us. As...
  27. VS 2010 Re: What's the best way to return data from a WCF data service?

    That has helped a bit, but does anyone have any opinions on the best way to return data? Am I okay to use a DataTable, or would I be better with XML, or is there a completely different data type that...

    But then compare the number of bullets and bombs to the number of chemical attacks. They estimate that between 100,000 and 120,000 people had been killed in Syria before this gas attack, so somewhere...

    It does puzzle me that people are allowed to kill thousands using conventional weapons, but as soon as they use a chemical weapon it suddenly becomes a problem. Killing is killing, surely?
