Without further ado I attached a video showing the functionality of the plugin. In a few days annexed to the plugin, source, demos and documentation so they can try and give me feedback.

Spectacular graphics that meets the key figures for Google


To get an idea of the volume of business that moves Google infografia nothing better than that prepared in pingdom, which collected on the same graph one timeline with key milestones of the company, impressive numbers on the form, increase in revenues , figures on company employees, and the most significant data on other successful products such as Android, YouTube, Blogger, Gmail, Chrome, Orkut or Analytics.

Surely more than one person has clicked on an indicator in the chart to see if anything more;)..

Update SQL Server table statistics dynamically throughout a database


In Oracle databases there is a table that allows to list all the tables in the database (table 'dba_tables') and we can use this 'dba_tables' to create maintenance scripts dynamically.  In SQL Server we can create also scripts of tables maintenace by querying the table [dataBase].dbo.sysobjects.

In the example below we use a T-SQL script to update statistics for all tables in a SQL Server database by querying dynamically the data dictionary (using the table dbo.sysobjects). This T-SQL code can be encapsulated in a stored procedure or in a job to be executed by the SQL Server Agent to automatically keep statistics updated on all tables of the dbo scheme in a SQL Server database.

Dataprix change the logo


Logotipo de DataprixAs many have noticed, we changed Dataprix logo.

Although the symbol of the head with the database during the previous logo reflected fairly well the spirit of Dataprix, and the relationship between data and knowledge, we believe it necessary to create a logo more 'professional', which will be the basis corporate image Dataprix.

Our primary corporate color is still blue, so the change on the web has not noticed too. We have changed the symbol for a 3D database, and D-shaped, to keep referring to the data, and lose the reference to knowledge that gave us the figure of a blue head, but you can not have everything in life ;).

In addition, we've heard from somewhere that may be better to simplify the meaning of the symbol to convey a clearer picture. For people not as technological areas, which need not recognize the symbol of a database could also be difficult to identify. On occasion I have come to discuss that on seeing the logo Dataprix seemed he might have something to do with a headache, or Bayer aspirin ..
