GPD Pocket 2 7″ Mini Laptop Windows 10 PC


David Meego - Click for blog homepageYou might have seen my posts on Twitter and Facebook recently about my new toy mini laptop PC, the crowd funded GPD Pocket 2.

I have been burnt before with crowd funded projects (I supported 3 smartwatches and only one make it to production and it under-delivered 😦 ), so I was wary of getting involved again. However, this was the second generation of the GPD Pocket and demo devices had already been delivered to a number of YouTube reviewers. I felt fairly safe to get involved with crowd funding again, as this would give me a discount and get the device earlier.

#SQL Collation – SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS vs Latin1_General_CI_AS


Craig Verster - Click for blog homepageToday, we have an article from guest author Craig Verster, Senior Microsoft Dynamics GP Consultant at Microchannel Services, who identified an issue that can affect Australian (and potentially other non-US) SQL Server installations.

When installing SQL Server Database Engine the default collation is dependent on the Locale of the operating system.

i.e. If Australia, then Latin1_General_CI_AS is the default collation method.

If USA (which is the default locale), then SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS is the default collation method.

Although both these collation methods use code page 1252 they actually work very differently.
