It’s the server, stupid!

I killed four hours at work this morning trying to figure out why a report was not working on one of our SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) systems. I googled. I read blogs. I signed up for the free trial of Expert-Exchange. Finally, I pushed the report out to the test server and it worked just fine there. So it’s not the report, it’s the server, stupid!

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrating this is.

However, we had our annual San Genero day, where the Rec Com folks cook up an awesome Italian lunch. And the meatballs. The meatballs are to die for. The gods on Mount Olympus can have their nectar. Just give me those meatballs. I had a plateful of them and had to forcible remove myself from the room, lest I do serious damage to my insides.

But yum!
