Remember the service manager in SQL 2000. Yes, that nice little icon near the clock in the system tray that showed the status of the SQL Server service. Well, it went missing in the 2005 version of SQL.
Well, some cool dude has created one for SQL Server 2005. I have to say, WOW! It looks absolutely astounding and supports versions 2000 and 2005 of SQL.
Now, this guy is an SQL expert and he’s even posted a few articles such as ‘SM0 2005 – Populating a list of SQL Servers‘ which I’ve always wanted. How cool would it be to add it to your application?!
