From Database Journal: "You know when you’ve got some good news to share and you just want to blurt it out? I feel like that right now, but I’m going to refrain from spilling the beans just yet.

From Codeguru: "Ever wonder how things work? I do. It's a blessing, and a curse.... It is sad how we developers take everyday things for granted. Things such as getting volume information from hard disks or even just a list of drives on a computer may seem complicated, and yes, some elements may be difficult, but it is an essential, must-have skill to have at your disposal.

From MS SQL Tips: "The default processing mode used in sorting data in SQL Server 2014 and earlier is row processing mode, where the SQL Server engine will process the data row by row, which works for most OLTP workloads without huge tables. But for data warehouse workloads, with very large tables that contain millions or billions of rows, the row processing mode will take forever. Is there any enhancement in the processing mode in SQL Server 2016?"
