    Unanswered: A Special Thank you

    I want to thank Brett Kaiser and Pat Phelan for advising me to get the "The Guru's Guide to Transcact-SQL" HOLY MOLY what an awesome book and the software that comes with it is so awesome "Sequin". This book is better then any of the Microsoft books, it breaks it all down for you and doesnt make it too difficult to understand I stayed up late last night reading this book. (which is why I'm exhausted today). This is by far the best Transact-SQL book I have ever come across.

    THANKS GUYS

    I'm Blushing....



    You should also pick up ADMIN911 for SQL Server 2000 by Brian Knight

    It's more of an administrators guide, but it's got lots of good stuff about security, performance, ect...mine is very dog eared

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    Hey Brett...can I have your copy? Apparently it's outta print, and the dude that has his listed for $80 on Amazon wants his copy more than I do...

    I wonder if they'll come out with another version...have you (or anyone else) heard such a thing?

    I just read "100 Things To Do Before You Die". I was surprised that "Yell for help!!" wasn't one of them

    I'd really rather have Brian's SQL Server 2000 for Experienceed DBAs instead. I think that it is more current, and includes additional material.

    Then again, I shouldn't really complain... My girlfriend is nearly as geeky as I am, just in different areas (she does infrastructure and Citrix).

    My first reason for thinking SQL Server 2000 for Experienceed DBAs is more current than Admin911: SQL Server 2000 is some of Brian's own comments about it... I didn't have any reason to question his comment.

    Such as? At the library right now...damn if they don't have any tech books...

    And I'd just as soon own my own copy...

    Does Brian Speak?
