what is craigslist going to lose next.. jobs? for sale?


Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.

To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!

Log Data, also known as the ‘Factless Fact Table’

I love log data. I did a lot of log analysis early in my career. I see a lot of value added context when you combine parsing log data and allow for rollups and drilldowns.

Obviously, not every database schema can deal with the volume, the structure and the ‘unknowns’. I just think that before moving to a different architecture, try to add some filtering, or change the default report to show less data.

Big Data?

I have played with Hadoop quite a bit, and especially Docker, HyperV.

I have built thousands of VMs over the years.

Yes. I focus on data. But I play with a lot of other tools. I mastered Enterprise ETL back in 2000 when I started combining dozens of business sources.

Database Guy… or Full-Stack? Sort-of In Between…

I love Data.

I also love XML, Screen Scraping
and Browser Automation. I see websites as data ready for analysis. Many people put all the logic in the web tier. I disagree.

Why would you NOT want to combine your Enterprise structured data with other sources online? Do you want to leverage the freshest data on the internet?

Available for Relocation?

Am I available for relocation? Yes. Definitely so. But I require cash up front for the travels, transportation and short term housing. I won’t discuss the details until we can talk about the complete offer. It just doesn’t make sense to get stuck on the details.

How to close a deal with me…

I like to move directly to client discussions. I have had 50,000 phone calls with recruiters in 20 years.. Let’s move forward.
We can settle the details later. I just think that a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step… and putting me in front of the client works the best for scheduling and ‘getting things done’.

My Favorite Part of SQL Server

My favorite component in MS SQL is probably Sql Agent. I love the flexibility it provides. But nothing can compare with the power of AdHoc Reporting with SQL Server Analysis Services. OLAP is a wonderful platform for cutting the workload involved with reporting.
