Restraining the madness: Python + SSH + pymssql = happy DBA

I routinely get requests from management like "I need a list of the urls and the sizes of databases for our <product_name> sites!" This, I can tell you, is NOT something I want to figure out by hand (not with 300 production databases and a slew of training, demo, test, etc... databases as well). No, there is a better, more relaxed way...a way that includes plenty of time for me to check my e-mail, go get a cup of coffee, and chat with my co-workers...

A bit of architectural...

Karmic on BBC Technology News

Posted 10-28-2009 at 11:06 AM by bhupendra

Just saw a video of Ubuntu Karmic on BBC technology site.The title.
Ubuntu readies the Karmic Koala
This is the link.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8326264.stm?ls
Ubuntu's Chris Kenyon gives BBC Radio 5-Live's Gary Parkinson a preview of Karmic Koala.
I thought it was great! P{erhaps I am biased because I have been using Ubuntu for a few years now.

24 divided by 4 is not an integer power of 2! (WTF Microsoft?)

Today I discovered quite possibly the most WTF of all quirks in a Microsoft product...the power of 2 failures in SQL Server 2005.

To back up, my company has a ton of aged Win2k SQL Server 2k machines that are about to fall apart. Some time ago, we got permission from the execs to spend around $35k on a server that would replace them all. So we purchase a new machine: 4 sockets (each socket stuffed with a 6-core Xeon), 64 GB of RAM, and 30+ 15k SAS disks. It's on par with the top...
