Description

Here's the second part of the SQL Server team tour.

Here you'll see a customer lab (Corinna Bolender and Bren Newman show you around), MVP posters, the SQL Server team's ping-pong table, the reporting services part of the building,

A fun question, about 17 minutes in, is when we asked "if Kalen Delaney were here, what would she be giving you heck about?" (Kalen is the famous author of "Inside SQL Server").

    great note about CLR compliant languages working within sql server.
    surprised that bren incorrectly explained TAP in the beginning.

    i recently started using SQL Server Express Beta to get into the swing of using SQL and learning SQL. it is fun to use and has helped me on a project. the sites you mentioned for SQL reference are top notch. i'm sure other readers are aware of those as well.
    some of my favorites include dotnetjunkies and thecodeproject.

    another great video. well done!

    I really didn't know people could hate SQL Server but I guess that SQL Mail stuff from years ago was a worthy cause.

    I don't know about hating it, but I do a lot of database stuff at University, and SQL Server is pretty much never mentioned. Usually we're talking about Oracle or MySQL, or customised petabyte database systems.

    I think when SQLMail came out it was a ground breaking feature, but we failed to keep it up to date in SQL Server 2000 so that has caused some of the bad experiences. We are really trying to fix that in SQL Server 20005.

    The woman (Corinna Bolender?) is a pretty face .. So many close-ups on her face while she was trying to show off the equipment Tongue Out ...  I wonder how many attractive and semi-attractive women work at Microsoft? There are ugly faces in the computing world, too. *sigh*

    I'm single and currently not employed so I am free to openly note such things. On the other hand, I do recall I made the tragic mistake in my first professional job as a programmer a decade or so ago muttering, "Dang she's got a nice butt." Turned out "she" was within hearing distance, brought her boyrfriend in to meet me, and spoke with the CIO, who instead of firing me gave her a one month paid vacation.

    We have to wait 18,000 years!?!?!?! Smiley

    I wish there some good documentation for SQLMail in 2000.  I hope the documentation for 2005 is better for this aspect of SQL Server.

    I am trying to create a stored procedure that reads an SQLMail box, looks for emails from a particular domain (ie @microsoft.com), checks for .CSV attachments and then inserts the data from the CSV attachment into an existing table (while having to strip off some additional text around some of the fields.)
