Adam Machanic, Boston-based SQL Server developer, shares his experiences with programming, monitoring, and performance tuning SQL Server. And the occasional battle with the query optimizer.
Over the past few days you might have noticed that the SQLblog external feeds roller had mysteriously vanished. We had some technical difficulties on Tuesday, things appeared to have fixed themselves by Wednesday morning, and then the problems returned Wednesday evening. So I decided to disable the feature. Honestly, I didn't think anyone would even notice, but I received some e-mails from some concerned parties; apparently there are people out there who actually use the roller.
The bad news is that we have no idea why this issue cropped up, but the good news is that I've been watching it now for three days and it seems fine. I've just turned it back on, and as part of the process of cleaning up the mess I even added a few new blogs to the list. As always, I'm looking for more great blogs to add, so if you have any ideas leave a comment here. Enjoy, and please let me know if you see any further issues.
