Since returning from my one month break I’ve been giving some 2018 posts a makeover. Because I felt that some deserved it for various reasons.
I first created this blog back in 2018. Back then it was a very busy time for me for various reasons. For example, I was getting ready to attend my first ever PASS Summit followed by a visit to Hawaii to see a friend of the family.
At the same time, I was writing lots of SQL Server related posts. In fact, I had a large number of drafts stacking up. Because I wanted to cover other topics in 2019 I made the decision at the time to publish a large number of posts in a very short period of time.
In addition to this, when I first starting writing for this blog my style of writing was different. Due to the above I have decided to go back over some of them and give them a makeover.
Some of them were just updated with design changes, whilst others had facts updated.
At this moment in time I have given the below posts a makeover.
- My first T-SQL Tuesday contribution – Death March
- Useful SQL Server related PowerShell Modules for the DBA
- A unique review of SQL Server index types
- Fixing some of the problems caused when you introduce Columnstore indexes
- Fixing some of the problems caused when you introduce rowstore filtered indexes
- A quick introduction to Power BI Report Server
- How SQL Server DBA’s can use Power BI Report Server
- A couple of things to watch out for if deploying Power BI Report Server
- Maintaining your larger databases better Part 1
- Maintaining your larger databases better Part 2 – Indexes
- Maintaining your larger databases better Part 3 – Recommended DMV’s
- Maintaining your larger databases better Part 4 – Recommended FREE tools for the job
I also discovered that the TechNet Gallery would be closing soon whilst updating these posts. You can read the announcement about the retirement in detail here.
So, if you are thinking about using the UserRights PowerShell module, I would download it sooner rather than later.
Personally, I am pleased with the results of giving these 2018 posts a makeover. It’s like looking at a campervan that has been restored.
Of course, if you have any questions or comments about this post or the updated ones feel free to reach out to me.
