I Still Miss Rose

Since I'm on some kind of TV craziness, Doctor Who is coming back April 18th.  Yet another show that has been gone for far too long. . . but then a week is even too long when it comes to Doctor Who.  So, in that theme I was very excited, but could also safely guess, which doctor Who character I am.

What Doctor Who character are you? (Tenth Doctor mainly)
created with
You scored as Rose Tyler

You are Rose Tyler! You are very kind, adventurous and brave. You are not afraid to face the unknown and with the Doctor you can make it through most anything. You are very close to the doctor and you two get along wonderfully.

The Doctor


Martha Jones


Jackie Tyler


Donna Noble


Captain Jack


Mickey Smith


The Master


I still ache that rose left the show.  Craziness, I think not.  I've somehow since become obsessed with Billie Piper, and only wish the Doctor had truly had a chance to tell her his feelings.

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

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

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
