I said recently that Windows Hates Me, and it must be true. I think Windows hates me because it knows I usually prefer non-Microsoft technologies. See, even when I use Windows, I end up using something like Perl. So when I said that Microsoft SQL doesn’t like to store a lot of text, what I should have said is that the non-Microsoft tools I used didn’t like to work with SQL to store/retrieve a lot of text. So I’ll give Microsoft SQL a point there. It stores lots of text, I just can’t easily do it with the tools I’m using. That damn Win32::ODBC module is partly to blame, as it has it’s limitations…

Of course if I was using some other RDBMS like MySQL and Perl’s DBI module, I’d have no problems. Microsoft SQL hates me too you see…. and if I was using MySQL and Perl, I’d try my hardest not to do it on Windows…

I won’t even get into the scheduler and how I need to bug an admin go in via VNC to add a scheduled job instead of just using crontab…

Windows, Microsoft SQL… Why do you hate me so?
