After an epic three-hour struggle with a database problem on Monday, I finally figured out the problem was a deeply hidden configuration option in Microsoft SQL Server. I changed one line of program code and everything worked. As I was wading through documentation, newsgroups, third-party source code, and any other reference that seemed halfway likely to produce an answer, my friend Craig quipped, “SQL Server’s motto should be ‘We make every day feel like Monday.'”

There is, of course, a lot of truth to that. As it’s Friday afternoon now and I’m not feeling particularly motivated to do anything productive, I hopped on the web and downloaded a couple of graphics to make a real gem of a poster.

It’s now hanging in my office.
