Recently, we were upgrading our SQL Server instances to the latest cumulative upgrades from Microsoft. All our development and QA environments were upgraded. After a couple of days, I received the following query from one of the interns: I’m restoring the backup of an existing database. During the restore, the Results pane in the SQL Server Management Studio displays the following message. Am I doing anything wrong? Converting database 'FileVersionUpgrade' from version 661 to the current version 706.
Database 'FileVersionUpgrade' running the upgrade step from version 661 to version 668.
Database 'FileVersionUpgrade' running the upgrade step from version 705 to version
706. This message is perfectly normal and simply indicates that the database being restored was backed up in a version of SQL Server that has a major version (e.g. major version of SQL Server 2008 is 10, that of SQL 2012 is 11 and so on) different from the one to which it is being restored or is on a different patch level. In fact, the database files have an underlying structure that is unique to the version of SQL Server (major versions may also have major changes to the file structure). When a database is restored, SQL Server upgrades the underlying...(Read whole news on source site)

Emotional intelligence is one of the most important tools to add to your tool belt, whether you are a leader, a manager, a manager of managers, or an individual contributor that needs to influence without authority. Emotional intelligence is “the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.” It’s powerful stuff. Here are 10 of my past posts from this year that will help you learn some new emotional intelligence skills that you can apply immediately: A Lighter Feeling - What if you
could release negative emotions and feel lighter and ready for anything as you go about your day? You can, if you know how, and the key is, it’s not in your head.

Last night, I returned from Vilnius, after seven intensive days of Buildstuff. After a few long months, I was looking forward to be influenced and inspired by concepts and experiences strange to my day-to-day job - surrounded by people hungry to build better software. Because of the diversity of the program, the high level of the speakers and the presence of some familiar DDD-community faces, my expectations were easily met. Also, the location and low rates for tickets, transport and beer make it a very reasonable investment.
I expect the videos to be uploaded over the
next few weeks and thus I will not bore you with session summaries. Instead I picked out some quotes which stood out for me in one way or the other; because they were spot on, summarize a concept in just a few words, or because they challenge me and give me food for thought.
Hope to see you again next year, Buildstuff.
