  • tags: scraping databaseexpansion

    • Web Crawling: What’s the simplest way of extracting email addresses from a website?
    • I use JavaScript here as if used directly in the Chrome Web Inspector, but any language with good HTML parsing library that supports CSS3 selectors will do.
    • the merge process is supposed to ignore the duplicates because one of the records is being deactivated.
    • the answer is the mentioning of the entity key in the message
    • When alternate key is present, the unique index is created by SQL Server and that index trumps any business layer rules and duplicate detections that Dynamics 365 might have in place.
      • man I don’t know what is an alternate key
    • Subordinate record will be deactivated but the value of the alternate key still there (and in the index) so any attempt to add the same value in the master record breaks the merge process.
    • Manually remove the value from the alternate key from the subordinate record and add it to the master.
    • “Swap” master and subordinate and merge into the record that contains the correct key value.
    • Tip #928: When CRM monthly charts won’t render
    • In Dynamics 365/CRM on premises, if you create a chart and group by month and find that it doesn’t render, you may need some additional SQL permissions.
    • Just type *dumble into the search box.
    • Wildcard at the end of the string is implied, i.e. there is no difference between searching for *Lebowski or *Lebowski*, both will find “Big Lebowski, The Dude” just fine (including “Small Lebowski, Not The Dude” in the process).
    • When you put your SQL Server hat on, you’ll find that leading wildcard search is “expensive” and ineffective.
    • Lastly, you already have a leading wildcard when you use Contains operator in Advanced Find
    • I don’t believe it’s possible without unsupported customizations and it’s better to empower users by teaching them to judiciously use “*” as part of their search term instead.
    • “If a President should pardon an accomplice, that accomplice then would be an unexceptionable witness,” Iredell wrote.
    • “If the President can be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him,”
    • It’s clear the Founding Fathers felt impeachment was the safeguard against using the pardon as an attempted criminal cover-up.
    • even if the Republican-controlled legislature failed to initiate impeachment proceedings, a future Justice Department could prosecute cases based on a former president’s use of the pardon.
    • Writing in the New York Times on Friday, constitutional scholars Eric Posner and Daniel Hemel agreed that Trump could be prosecuted for any such pardons were they to constitute obstruction of justice. They wrote:
    • “If he pardoned for money or pardoned corruptly, I would think that that could be prosecuted,” she told me. “I don’t think that he could do whatever he wants with the pardon power. He obviously can’t accept money for a pardon.”
