Microsoft © is slowly abandoning VB … get out while you can, it only hurts the first time.

One of the greatest strengths of the Visual Basic Language is that a beginner can learn to do many useful things fairly quickly.

One of the greatest weaknesses of Visual Basic Programmers is that they will learn to do a many useful things fairly quickly, and then they will stop learning anything.

When I was working in training people would ask, "What if I pay to train my people and they leave?" I would ask them, "What if you don't train them, and they STAY?!" If you believe you don't need training, you are wrong. This business changes too fast to not be constantly learning something new.

comment How to unsalt roasted salted peanuts?
Yes, but the peanuts would then be saturated with water and would be less desirable (IMHO). I don't believe the overall effect would be a benefit... However, you may wish to try it. Here is a recipe for Soaked - Then - Roasted Peanuts..

comment t-SQL: Incorrect Syntax Near 'Go'
My {misplaced} belief that it would work was more based on the operation of the BEGIN...END statements as code blocks. I thought the batch would operate as a child of the block... (like scope...)

@HABO - I was thinking it would create a 'sub batch' inside the BEGIN/END block under the if.

comment t-SQL: Incorrect Syntax Near 'Go'
Before USE [myTestDb] I am confirming/creating the login and db to be used. Following the second 'USE' I plan to assign the login and create tables and initialize data. If I don't execute that last GO SSIS will block the execution if [myTestDb] doesn't exist.

I have tested this sample and it provides the same errors, in the same spot. The actual name of the user or the Db should not be the issue.

comment Is it possible to heatproof (insulate) stainless steel pot handles?
The ones I saw are mostly removable. The JAZ pieces look like they would stay in place until you want to remove them.
