The week that was: Friday 15th July 2010

This is just a short post for a Friday, I have no technical content ready to publish today but lots and lots of ideas and a couple of drafts. This week I have looked a little at replication, I have a few posts lined up next week on that.  I have also been doing some initial prep work on migrating quite a large SQL Server 2000 database to SQL Server 2008 and I intend to write some posts around that too.
I had a TSQL2sday post go live on Tuesday all about learning, you can find my post here. I have read some of the posts already, not all of them yet, I like to wait for the round up post from the host before reading them all. Robert said on twitter that there were over 30 submissions so I guess that post may take a while to come out.
This weekend I have a whole bunch of DIY to do…I hate DYI but it needs doing. I’m playing cricket this Saturday for Senghenydd Cricket Club,  my two Golden Retriever puppies (They are dogs really but will always be puppies to me) will want to do something nice too, they do like to go to the beach perhaps we will get down there at some point. The cricket and the beach are weather dependant though and as yesterday is Saint Swithun’s Day and it rained all day, it could rain for the next forty days :-(
Have a great weekend!


  1. Oooh what sort of Replication are you working with? I have a tonne of experience working with complex Transactional Replication topologies so if I can be of any help just let me know.

    P.S I hate DIY too! Grouting this weekend :-)

  2. Pretty simple one-way transactional replication, nothing all that complicated, although I did initialise from a backup.

    What makes your replcaited environments complicated? updating subscribers and databases at multiple locations and sites, that sort of thing?
