Scary SQL Server stuff: tombstones, phantoms, blobs, ghosts and zombies


This post mixes the spirit of Halloween and the passion for SQL Server :-)


 


Have you noticed how SQL Server has a number of things that seem right out of a horror movie?


As a test of your SQL Server expertise and for a fun Halloween trivia game, try to describe the items in the list below in the context of SQL Server.


If you can’t, follow the links to figure them out:



And, of course, there’s a number of Wizards all over the place.


If you know any other good ones, please do share in the post comments.


 


P.S.: I was also reminded by Kalen Delaney of the classic “Halloween Problem” which can cause pretty scary results, as described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween_Problem. Not specific to SQL Server, but there was a related issue with SQL Server 7 : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/248441.


 


Happy Halloween!
