Very impressed with the advertised speed bump offered with the new version of SQL Server 2016. Just need to grab some time for getting a lab up and running with some real life workload under test.

no don't leave and just like that summer was gone. Leaving behind a super cute #GoogleDoodle.

PS Google doodle team: it's real hard to share the doodle image without downloading it or going on a hunt for the right link. It's not even the first link when you search for "autumnal equinox Google doodle"

It might be for a new #Volvo but the images are really quite something.

Though it seems that someone has left a car in every one of the pictures...:)

Skogsmulle-versionen av Volvo V90 är här!
 ·  Translate
Ska man vara riktigt med i tiden ska man ha en bil som kan klara en skogsstig utan större problem. Där behövs lite högre markfrigång, plast runt skärmarna, ruggade fälgar och kanske även en hasplåt ifall man kör över stockar och sten. Detta började Volvo med redan för 20 år sedan, när V70 XC dundrade fram på grusvägar till tonerna av Creedence fantastiska Bad Moon Rising. Hipster before it was cool. Nu är det dags för nästa spelare i matchen att ...

More stinging nettles than I remember on the forest cut through. Pretty consistent speed over the 5k considering the forest was more like hurdles. 🤕

470hp V8 Motorbike
The bike is essentially hinged down the middle to allow it to corner, seems unnecessarily complicated but looks ace. Has a slightly futuristic feel to it but I do wish they had done a better job of the sound production.

Microsoft Azure now GA from UK data centres

Considering Amazon's AWS arm talked about a UK offering around the same time last year this is a big win for Azure even if they are lagging the cloud wars. They are catching fast, especially if they can get the interest of the MoD and NHS.

#in #cloud
Microsoft today is announcing that its two new United Kingdom (UK) data center regions for its Azure public cloud and its Office 365 services are now available for public use.

Something borrowed, something new
A #wedding from yesterday where I thought I'd try out some new ideas for images to make the album a little more lively - most of the pictures will be viewed online anyway so why not include a animation/gif.

Came out pretty well though tips to improve my looping (and avoid the "jump") are greatly appreciated.

cool! A tripod would help a little, as there is a little drifting of the framing which makes the 'jump' harsher. Also, not sure how you created the gif, but if you use something like photoshop, you can do things like reverse the order of the pics. Example, pic 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Smooth, perhaps a little "thin" but still a really nice cup of coffee. Served with cheeky piece of shortbread. Weather is less motorbike friendly but I've never been much of a fair-weather biker

Using the Internet of things to deal with peak electricity demand

The idea behind this is pretty simple. Load balance the consumers of electricity on the grid by spreading peak demand. Delivering the capacity of a new power plant but without actually building one!

Why cover almost every surface in cat photos
Wouldn’t it be great not to worry about the holiday we can’t afford, the car we don’t need, or the body we don’t have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel good.

Actually that's a pretty good reason right there.

Great news for mixed-language development shops. Close work with NuGet and the addition of SQL Server as well is genuinely useful.

A quick refresh of my test estate shows the costs are nearly double for Windows 2012 vs CentOS 7.

A rogue Bailey appears. She's super pesty.

She might be getting older but she's had a lot of fun the last few weeks in the forests of Sweden and even a stop to shout at squirrels in Germany. What fun! Getting older is for other dogs.

Also her pet passport is now full, so much so we nearly couldn't fit the stamps and certificates from the vet in her passport to come home...nearly. new one on the way 😊

Helpful staff, good supply of equipment and parts. Always worth checking online first in case they don't have what you need in stock.

A little expensive, understandable given the location. The water-side seating area is really nice, beer is good quality and the food was a good standard - schnitzel was ace. The waiter had good english but the service generally was a little slow (considering it wasn't that busy). Would go back but there are so many other restaurants along the front it would be good try something else.

Compact, definitely english, unusual green-glazed tiles on the outside - you can't miss it. Outside views onto the quayside as well and across to Brownsea Island. Cake tasted a bit of "fridge" but they appear to have a great fish menu sourced straight from the quay. Worth another visit especially as they have Ringwood Brewery Ale on tap.

The most southern point of Sweden with a stunning view over the sea whether calm or stormy. Slightly bumpy walking with stroller or wheelchair but worth the effort. Walk around the corner to see some great artwork installations and an ancient lime kiln.

Good, clean-fried, quality fish and chips, always freshly made and nice as a treat. Perfect "bike night" food for walking around with - the only challenge is keeping the seagulls away from your prize!
