Ok, so my VHD is a little too small for what I'm trying to do.

My local disk is cheap to use - it's built in, and already paid for. Buying another one is not. This is part of the reason I run VHD's - it's much easier to spend only time to stand up a new server, rather than the outlay for a new server box.

That said, if I can get a bigger VHD/Hard Drive File when I need it, VPC/VHD isn't going to do me much good, is it?

I found this great writeup:

What if you had a list of groceries you wanted to store in a shopping list style list?

How would you do that?

I would define a simple table, like this:


So then what?? How do you turn that into SQL? Well, that's easy, right?

First you define the table:

create table groceries
Item varchar(50)
, Default_Qty int

And then you insert some sample data:

insert into groceries (item, default_qty) values ('Milk', 1);

PC Rebuild

My PC is being rebuilt. This is causing me to go off-schedule a bit. Hopefully I'll be back next week.
