Okay, so I have not been here to post in a while, but now is the time to turn that around. It is time to get some new posts going and they will be all kinds of stuff. I have one picture for you right now. Hope you enjoy it.

What does one do with half a million cpu cores? I know I would be making the damn this think it is smart…I would hope that something like this could pass a turing test. But then again, probably not…only because we are just a bunch of idiots fumbling around with electricity and poor scripts.
So let’s get out there and play with plasma and gene code instead.
To go along with my last post about SQL Saturday, here is something really cool. A way to create completely hidden folders in Windows. Now I know this works in Windows 7 and I haven’t tested it on any other OS, so if you find it works in older versions (and I think it should), please report back so we can keep the information flowing.
And if you have any other cool tips, please let me know. ENJOY!
For those of you not in the know, you should be on the look-out for a SQL Saturday event in your area. They are free events, with a small fee for lunch, that tend to help you learn a lot about SQL. The training is all volunteer led and usually a lot of fun.
I attend SQL Saturday #85 this past weekend and had a good time. Five of my co-workers went with me and we all learned some new things we should be able to use in the workplace almost immediately.
One of the best classes I sat in was “Revenge The SQL!”. This class taught us a bunch of nefarious ways you can really mess with developers and anyone else trying to look at your database. More than anything, the class showed us some ways just to have some fun… Did you know it is possible to have upwards of 5000 tables in your database, all with the exact same name of nothing. That is not the name of nothing, but no name at all…blank…empty…etc.
And I am not going to give away what I learned…if you want the same knowledge I got, plan to attend a SQL saturday near you and get involved in the SQL movement! LOL.
