We went to see

We went to see Calendar Girls last night, and were very amused by it. I took a look at the official site this morning and am really amused by the amount of air brushing that has gone on with the main picture… I mean, really, the idea of this film is that a group of wrinklies get their kit off for a charity calendar – it’s not meant to be that glam.

And another rant …

And another M$ rant… I’m using SQL Server, and I want to (programatically) change the next identity for a new record in a table. So, I use the DBCC CheckIdent command. If no records have ever been inserted into the table, then I use DBCC CheckIdent ([tablename], RESEED,[number I want the next record to have]). However, if records have been inserted then I need to use DBCC CheckIdent ([tablename], RESEED, [number I want the next record to have] +1). What a load of pants!

My office pc is

My office pc is running XP Professional, and one thing has been driving me mad – MSN Messenger version 4.7 insists on running and then telling me that it isn’t a secure version. Finally, today I found a knowledge base article explaining how to turn it off. Yay!
