new heights of Geekdom for me..

by Shellbot In reply to DBA's have feelings too.. ...

<p>Ok, i know i am a bit of a geek at times, but it really hit home today. </p>
<p>Yesterday I <strong>successfully</strong> installed SQL Server Reporting Services. I had the sense (for once) to look into it BEFORE junping into installing it and turns out there was a few things one should do first. So, thanks to Mr. James Luetkehoelter who has an article in SQL Server Central, you saved me a headache! Anyways, that went smooth, and for a change it was actually a delight to install a MS product.</p>
<p>Today I opened it up and did its Hello World equivilent. I'm hooked! Now I'm no reporting specialist by far and have even only used Crystal a few times, so considering i was able to jump straight in and get it working made me very happy!</p>
<p>It was my excitement at my mornings work that made me realise what i am turning into...*sigh* </p>

<p>Sorry, had to chuckle to myself a little.  I had forgotten that with MS you actually have to install and initialize such things as SQL, I do most of my database work using either PostgreSQL or MySQL depending uppon the applications, and since both come pre-intalled and initialized on my Linux flavors of choice, installing and setting them up is as easy as a check box.</p>

World of Warcraft

<p>Right..so it was a great idea for us all to start playing this game. Unfortuneatly for us UK based people we can't play on US servers. So..i'm stuck on a European server all my own. Joined a guild, but looking for a new one, as not so keen on the members in it.</p>
<p>Now, if i allowed myself, I'd be a complete addict. I love it!! I have restricted myself to one evening during the week, and then an evening on the weekend. I go on Sat mornings as well..as i wake up at about 7 am..so i sneak onto the pc...</p>
<p>I started off quite slowly, but am picking up speed on it now, and am happily questing away. I only wish we could customise the avatars a bit more..but oh well.</p>
