UK Bank Holiday Function

On my current contract I made the suggestion that our date dimension should contain bank holidays as they would enrich the reporting capability, I had previously written a function to return a list of hank holidays but I had only really considered modern holidays from 2000 onwards so I needed to make a few mods to take into account the changing face of bank holidays over the years. 

SQL Server slowing start up of laptop

Not sure why but still seem to bump into developers and other general code monkeys who still don't shut down their PC's for the simple fact the start up time is too long due to all the services that run at start up and normally chief amongst which is the start up of SQL server. 

Personally I'm a laptop user so long commutes really do preclude not shutting down properly so I just use a batch file to stop and start what I need!
