The Spaghetti-Western Database
Today I noticed in my WordPress site stats that somebody landed on this blog from a search engine with the keywords “spaghetti dba”.
I found it hilarious that somebody was really searching for me that way, and I performed the search on Google to see how this blog would rank.
The third result from Google made me chuckle: The Spaghetti-Western Database Trailer. And here is the video showing on that page:
Awesome. I love Spaghetti-Western movies and I love databases, I couldn’t ask for more!
The video is a trailer to the site www.spaghetti-western.net and… Oh! Wait: is that a NoSQL database? #fail
Setting up linked servers with an out-of-process OLEDB provider
A new article on SQLServerCentral today: Setting up linked servers with an out-of-process OLEDB provider.
I had to struggle to find the appropriate security settings to make a commercial OLEDB provider work with out-of-process load and I want to share the results of my research with you.
It took 50 hours of Microsoft paid support to partially solve the issue and a huge time spent on Google and MSDN to find a complete resolution. I hope this can help those that will have to face the same issue some day.
