This is one of my favourite speeches:
6 rules of success:
- Trust yourself.
Break some rules.
Don’t be afraid to fail.
Don’t listen to naysayers.
Work your butt off!
Give something back.
And remember to sleep faster 😉
So it’s taken me a little over a year to put my 3D printer together, but I’ve finally done it.
This is what it looks like:
After many hours of trying to calibrate the machine last Thursday, I finally managed to successful print my first 3D object:
He’s not quite a high quality specimen yet, but he’s strong as hell and a really good start.
I really wasn’t expecting to be able to create objects that are that strong, so I’ve quite excited about the possibilities now.
I’ll be posting a video of the printing process shortly, but here’s a snapshot in the meantime:
I’m envisioning creating many more posts related to 3D printing as I learn this craft, so please check back regularly 🙂
I’m feeling so excited, as (hopefully) the last piece of the puzzle has arrived !!! 🙂
I can’t wait to get home and try out my 3D printer.

So you’ve got a BI solution up and running and want to find out what MDX queries are actually running on your server?
Well this guide will help you quickly find out.
Step 1: – Launch SQL Profiler – You can find it on the Tools menu of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS):
Step 2: – Login to Analysis Services:
Step 3: – Start a new Trace:
Step 4: – Remove a lot of the noise by removing all the events you don’t care about:
Just leave the ‘Query End’ event ticked.
If your server isn’t very busy then you can probably just click ‘Run’ to start profiling, otherwise continue onto the next step.
Step 5: – Filter the traces even more
Before clicking ‘Run’ you can do some more filters by clicking on the ‘Column Filters’ button.
Step 6: – Show queries for only a specific user
Here I’m adding a filter to only show results where the NTUserName = grudman ( grudman is my username)
Step 7 – Click run, and watch the trace logs come in 🙂
Step 8 – Optionally create a template for all this
Please see my next article for the steps you’ll need to perform
As always all feedback is welcome 🙂
I’m busy re-installing my work notebook and decided to create a list of all the tools I’ll be installing – Hopefully this helps someone out there.
If you have any choice in the matter I would highly recommend using SSD drives – If you could only upgrade one thing in you PC then this should be it.
The software I’m planning on installing:
Other Great tools, but I’m not currently using them:
- VisualSVN Server
- HardLink Shell Extention
Other useful tools, but much care is require when installing these!:
- FileZilla – FTP Client – WARNING Read the Installer Steps Carefully, otherwise it’ll install other rubbish!
- Unlocker – tool to release locked files and folders – WARNING Read the Installer Steps Carefully, otherwise it’ll install other rubbish!
