New SQL Utility


There is a new SQL utility published on the Microsoft downloads' site:


It allows the scripting of a database which includes both scripting of the schema as well as scripting the data!  Well worth a look as it could be beneficial in a build process or backup.

I've instaleld it but I haven't had time to see how well it works.  I'm curious as to how it works, whether it uses COM or SMO or DMO or some combination.  If you take a look at it, please leave feedback on it or it's uses here on this post.

Until next post,


Error: [dbo].[tablename], column 'columnname' is of type [UserDefinedDataTy
pe].  This type is currently not supported.

Damn!  No support for UDTs!

IPv6 Readiness Survey

The Internet Society (ISOC-AU) has recently been working on a new
project, funded by DCITA, in a consortium with auDA, AEEMA and
BuildersNet, to examine Australian readiness to implement IPv6.

As part of this exercise, organisational network planning people
(IT/Systems/Network manager or architect), are asked to complete our
Australian IPv6 readiness survey at http://www.ipv6.org.au/.

If you are at all interested in the future of the internet, please take the time to complete the survey.

IPv6: The Second Conference, plus news from ICANN

Hi All,

Forst off a quick spot for the upcoming IPv6 conference to be held in Canberra in early December.  The website (for more information) can be found at:


Last year the first IPv6 conference was held in Canberra, and was a very useful and important meeting of the minds.  If you have any interest in the Internet (or Internet-enabled technology) this is THE conference for you.  Book now and I'll see you there.

Now, on to other matters.. ICANN News

According to trusted UK Technology site theregister (a favourite of mine for some ten odd years or something approaching that number) apparently the US Government has finally bowed to international pressure to hand over controlling power of root domain names to an international body (ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).


This has been long awaited and (although technically nothing has yet been done regarding this transition) will hopefully allow for a more balanced approach to domain name administration and to a lesser extend issues surrounding existing copyright legislation.

Lets hope such a move given ICANN more power to be authorative than the policital equivalent, the United Nations.  It can't be stressed enough though, that the current structure of ICANN will need to change significantly so that it is abreast of the current issues and that it wholly represents the true demographics of the Internet, and not just the US and other western countries.

Thats all for now.  Next post will be something more technical - check back soon.
