Standing to Code

Today I tried a Standing Desk for the day. I've heard about this a number of times, mostly on Twitter. The idea's not new, but it is gaining attention due to the health concerns around so much sitting. I started standing at 7am. It's currently 3pm, and I'm still standing here. So far so good. My muscles are a little tired, but my mind feels more awake than most other days! Another thing I'm noticing is that it's a lot easier to switch gears. If I need to step over for a cup of coffee, I'm already standing....

SqlTransaction Ain't Always Transactional (WAT!?!)

True or False: "SQL run using a SqlTransaction is part of a SQL Server Transaction and can be rolled back." The answer is of course "True", right? That's what I thought too. This scenario showed me some exceptions to this rule.
