I found a database recently called “Birthdays”. A bit odd.
I looked into it, and found a single table storing the names of about 30 people, more than half of whom no longer worked for the company. And a stored procedure that no longer worked that was supposed to read this table and email the rest of the team when someone’s birthday was approaching.
Monitoring showed that this database hadn’t been used in three months (ie since monitoring began…)
This seems like one of those situations where, I don’t know, some sort of Calendar might be a better option than a SQL Server-based solution.
