    Unanswered: SQL Server BOL (Books Online)

    There is no desktop books online anymore with 2012. I was a little surprised, but it seems to only be online. I have been in one or two environments where you did not really have internet access and server access at the same time. BOL should really have a smartphone application, but I just checked the google playstore and came up empty.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    What?! That's real poor...

    1) I might need RTFM offline
    2) It is far, far quicker to access local resources
    3) It is far, far safer to access local resources
    4) I'm stuck in my ways

    The SQL 2000 BOL was the best.

    You CAN install SQL Books Online on a PC, but WHY would you do such a silly thing?

    Follow the destructions at Download Product Documentation for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 for firewall and proxy restricted environments from Official Microsoft Download Center if you are really intent on hurting yourself for no good reason.
