Can you solve this little "puzzle"

Visit the page of each of the 5 products listed under the Silver Subscription in the order they are listed there. From each product's page pick the first letter from the "Features" section. Perform a Left Circular Shift on the binary ASCII values of each of the letters you picked; now, divide each number by 2 and get the corresponding CHAR value - the five new letters you get form the code that you can use to get a 1 year Silver Subscription at a 75% discount. The code is valid until May 17, 2015. Enjoy finding the code and let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Prove us wrong - schema compare challenge

You want a free license for our Schema Compare tool - prove us wrong!

We believe in our tools so much that we are willing to challenge you. We invite you to compare the schemas of any two SQL Server databases (from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2014) and guarantee you that our Schema Compare tool will successfully identify the differences and synchronize the schemas every time, no matter how complex your schemas might be (replicated tables are not compare/synchronized as synchronizing them would potentially break the replication). If you can identify a scenario in which our tool either fails or generates incorrect results you are entitled to a free 1 year Silver Subscription which includes 5 of our tools.

If you believe you have found an error please email us at support@xsql.com so that we can verify the error and send you the complimentary Silver Subscription license.

The challenge will be open until April 1, 2015.

SQL Server Compare tools - new build available

New builds of xSQL Schema Compare and xSQL Data Compare are available for download. The new Schema Compare build includes:
  • some improvements in the user interface such as a new ribbon control, improved docking, tabs and UI style;
  • A fix for an issue with the TEXTIMAGE_ON table clause - it now performs additional checks and only includes the clause when it is required by the table script;
  • A fix for a dependency issue between tables and stored procedures that occurred when the compatibility level was set to SQL Server 2005.
The new build of the Data Compare includes:
  • improvements in the user interface such as a new ribbon control, improved docking, tabs and UI style;
  • improved data grid for displaying row differences.
Both compare tools can be downloaded together as one package from our site at: http://www.xsql.com/download/sql_server_comparison_bundle/

If you are interested in acquiring a license you can either purchase a perpetual license from our site at http://www.xsql.com/order/sql_server_comparison_bundle/ or you can purchase a silver subscription that includes 5 tools or the gold subscription that also includes the xSQL Schema Compare SDK.
