MS SQL Server 2008 Debugging

I like the new debugging capabilities of SQL Server 2008. It brings in features such as stepping in, stepping out, and stepping over. This can come handy when we are trying to track the actual issue. I found this feature interesting because it empowers developers to track issues at the most granular level. Now, we can step inside system functions, and stored procedures to figure out the values of internal variables and sets. See the video below for a quick guide on how to debug in SQL Server 2008 management studio.

SQLServerpedia is the wikipedia for MSSQL server pros

I ran into recently. I thought the concept was interesting. Kevin Kline and his colleagues launched that portal. Just like Wikipedia, users can edit entries related to MS SQL server. This will be a useful work related resource for me.

After reading the entries at the SQL server wiki site, I ran into another site that had an intersting tool. They call it TallEye. The purpose of that tool is to find out where you end up after digging a very deep hole from any location in the world map. So, I dug hole at Bangladesh and found out I'd emerge in South Pacific ocean. Interestingly enough, they did not advise how to bypass the core of earth.

Experimenting with social media API in .NET and SQL

I started experimenting with Social Media Api such as Facebook, Twitter, GData. There are plenty of libraries in .NET one can take advantage of. Just for fun, I wrote one tool that allows users to save wikipedia articles locally. The data resides in a local SQL compact database. This .NET app integrates status message functionality from facebook and twitter. Feel free to check it out at

These days I am also looking at TokBox api. In my humble opinion, Toxbox is a video chat service which integrates the best features in video conferencing, youtube, and skype. I love it. Most recently, I added some of my friends such as Garry Schyman and others there. TokBox was founded by one of the co-founder of youtube, Jawed Karim.

See below for a way to integrate TokBox in a site:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="" width="300" height="413" pid="495fd42c4c185981"><param name="movie" value=""/><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/><param name="flashvars" value="guestList=true&textChat=true"/></object>

I have 2 YouTube Video Log or VLOG.

One is work related and called the icsql channel. The clip below talks about SSIS script component changes:

My other VLOG is related to art and volunteer works I do around the community. I volunteer some of my free time to KFAI radio these days. Here is a radio interview I did with some notable friends like Matt Harding, Palbasha Siddiqui, and Garry Schyman:
