Angry at Carphone Warehouse and O2

So I am currently in a rather angry mood; currently I want to locate O2′s head office and storm in their and “demand satisfaction”! But I suppose that this rant of a post will have to do. Allow me to set the scene:

Yesterday I spotted a great deal on Carphone Warehouses website; it was for the phone I had been tempted with recently and at a great price (no up front charge). If you want to take a look it might still be here. So I put in my order and started to look forward to the arrival of my shiny new HTC One M8.

An (A)DBA and SQL Monitor

In my professional life I am a C# .net Developer and the accidental dba (ADBA) at my company. I call my self an ADBA because we didn’t originally have a Database Administrator and I sort of fell into the role. The company grew and although it’s databases were already important they were now under greater strain and needed to be run on better hardware.

Once more into the breach…

Well it has been a while since I last posted here; I could say that life has been busy or I could make other excuses! Truth be told it has; since my last post I have gotten married and bought a house (along with all the stress that work can provide!).
