Bringing Impersonation to SQL Server 2005 (via Nick Grattan’s SharePoint Blog)

leave a comment »

Found this handy blog post from a few years ago!

Frequently I find that I would like to execute TSQL commands under the context of another login, for example, when testing a database user’s permissions on objects. The SQL Server 2005 EXECUTE AS statement allows us to do this. To show how this works, first create a login and a user for the AdventureWorks database and test the current login and user name:   CREATE LOGIN OrdinaryLogin WITH PASSWORD = 'Password' GO CREATE USER OrdinaryUs … Read More

Weaving Again

The loom is about A4 in size and light to hold. We cannot remember where we bought them. Somewhere online listed as a ‘toy’ but it is solidly made. Marta has made some nice purses with her loom about a year ago.

Kinloch Primary School Carnoustie

leave a comment »

It has taken me a while to upload this one! This was put together in the summer and covers the demolition of a well known primary school in Carnoustie.

Dragonfly

leave a comment »

Marta found this little guy waiting to be trod and rescued him. He was placed in a safe part of the garden but sadly died. I did say ‘little guy’ but he is actually one of the biggest dragonflies we have seen in the area.
