Second Dinners

Kentucky Fried Chicken reast and a roll by iirraa Wednesday night we have WATCH (Wednesdays at Church) which is our bible study.  One of the great things about WATCH (besides prayer and being with friends - of course) is second dinners.

See, every Wednesday we begin with a great dinner before we break off into groups for study.  Since I have dinner with the family before I head over, I've come to call these second dinners.  They're great because if it's something good I can always find room, if it's not so good, who cares, I already ate.

Last week I got to choose the next weeks meal, and I chose fried chicken.  Fried chicken is easily my favorite second dinner.  Somehow I just go completely insane.

This week I had some tortellini at home then went to church and had a breast of chicken and a leg and corn.  Then went back for potatoes and a thigh.  then went back for another breast of chicken. . . I was feeling pretty full. 

I mentioned to one of the people I was eating with that I'd grab a leg as I headed off to bible study.  He thought I was joking. . . until he saw me with the leg in my mouth and a cup of soda in my hand.  Thank goodness the bible study wasn't on gluttony.  I did let him know that it was all okay though, since I take my cholesterol medicine to balance out the insane amount of fried chicken I ingest (I'm sure my doctor would agree).

I have no idea what comes over me, but fried chicken second dinners are my favorite.  Every day this past week I've been looking forward to it.

All I can tell you is that it's great to spend time with some great people, and have a great meal, whether it's the first or second of the night.

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
