Off Topic – Why I’m unclebiguns on Twitter

Posted by sqlwiseguy on July 15, 2009

There may be some people wondering why I go by the name @unclebiguns on Twitter.  I am basing this on the following facts:

  1. I have gotten some interesting followers (blocked of course).
  2. Comments that have been made about this user name in other places as well.

I thought I’d blog (at Andy Warren’s suggestion) why I have that handle.

It goes back about 12 years when one of my best friends had their first child.  He and I had an ongoing debate going on who ate more and who was fatter, so to try to get me going he taught his daughter to call me Uncle Biguns after my stomach.  It’s kind of funny because I have grown into the name as I now wish I weighed what I weighed back then.  Since it is a unique name (last night Chad Miller commented that I was the only unclebigun’s he knows), I decided to use it as a user name for fantasy sports, etc….

So if you wondered why or what it meant, there it is.  I hope you aren’t too disappointed.

RedGate SQLPrompt Laughers

Posted by sqlwiseguy on January 16, 2009

I was writing some SQL today, big surprise, and I noticed this snippet in RedGate SQLCompare, “yell”. So I hit the tab key to insert the snippet and here is what I got:

/*

AAAA AAAA AAAA AAAA RRRRR GGGG HH HH ######
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG GG HH HH ######
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG HH HH ####
AAAAAA AAAAAA AAAAAA AAAAAA RRRRR GG GGG HHHHHH ##
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GG GG HH HH
AA AA AA AA AA AA AA AA RR RR GGG G HH HH ##

*/

So I decided to see if there were any other funny ones. I only find one more, neo, which puts this in:

— I know Kung-Fu.

If this was, “I know aikido”, then there are few SQL Guru’s it would apply to. Gail Shaw, Grant Fritchey, and Steve Jones.

I love when I find little things like this. They make life interesting.
