Battlestar is back!

Last Friday one of the best shows came back on the air after more than a year hiatus. . . for one more season.  That's right, Battlestar Galactica is back, and it's great! Maybe this will make up for my earlier realization that the newer Episodes of Star Wars are better than the older ones.

I stumbled across this quiz while perusing information for my next blog post.

What New Battlestar Galactica character are you?
created with
You scored as CPO Galen Tyrol

You never wanted to be a glamorous Viper pilot. You are happy knowing that without you to fix their birds, they cannot fly. You fell in love with the wrong girl, but is that so wrong? Maybe, but you don't really care.

CPO Galen Tyrol


Lt. Sharon Valerii (Boomer)


President Laura Roslin


Capt. Lee Adama (Apollo)


Commander William Adama


Number 6


Lt. Kara Thrace (Starbuck)


Dr Gaius Baltar


Col. Saul Tigh


Tom Zarek


The funny thing is that as I was filling out the quiz, I absolutely knew who I was going to match up with.  I don't get how Galen fell in love with the wrong girl, I think Callie is perfect.

If you're looking for a show with some deep story, deep characters, and stunning changes, this is it.  I found myself in tears during the holocaust episodes.

Welcome back old friends,

You're a cylon!! :)

We can't wait for tonight. We didn't start watching it at the beginning - Jeff recorded it in reruns and we watched it when Alex was first born. Hey - there isn't anything else on at 3am!

Did you know that next year they are having a show revolving around the Pegasus - like from 50 years ago. Should be interesting.

I'm sad that the show is ending, but i want to know if they will find Earth, who the last cylon is, and how it all ends.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Microsoft Access

I've answered this question in some form or another far more times than I care to count.  Most often it's a question of "why do I need a fancy Web application when I can just build this myself in two days in Access.  I mean, the data's already in Excel."  So I figured I'd post out what I threw together, I know I've missed some points. Overview Microsoft Access is an ideal solution for relatively small datasets and a limited number of users. From the Microsoft Web site: “As a desktop database, Access is well suited for small, departmental applications. These applications may start as one user’s project. For example, an employee realizes that productivity can be increased if a paper-based process is automated with an Access application. Other users in the department recognize that they can take advantage of the application if additional features are added. As more features are added, more employees run the application. As time goes by, more and more Access

Beryllium Spheres

I'm sitting here at home watching The Shadow , easily one of the best movies made based on one of the best old time radio shows.  I hadn't picked up on this earlier, but the weapon used to destroy the city is none other than the same power source used to power the NSEA Protector in Galaxy Quest . I never knew Beryllium was so cool.  Now I want a sphere of my own. Anyone know of other places Beryllium Spheres are mentioned? Peace, +Tom

Red-Gate SQL Compare

Every now and then I come across a program that becomes so ingrained in my daily work that I hardly know how I'd get by without it.  I'll probably break down a couple over the next few days, but for database work, I have never found anything as good as Red Gate's SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare .  Essentially these tools let you compare two SQL Server databases (all objects, users, permissions, functions, diagrams, anything) and update changes to whichever database you want.  This is amazingly useful for deploying database changes to a test or production environment (do it to production with ridiculous care, even though it will generate a SQL Script for you and run all updates in one transaction), and making sure everything is synchronized. For releases we can just generate the compare script, confirm that the changes match the updates we want to go out, and store it all in one place with the release details.  This is true for both the structure and the data, to
