Congratulations, Jeff.

You have been deserving of an award like this for years. As a long-time SSC member and regular tally table user (and calendar table!), I thank you for everything you have given to this community, not only with your technical expertise, but your positive and caring attitude.

Hopefully, there is much more to come for you.

Mike


Thank you for the great feedback, Mike. Like I said earlier, I aim to please... I'm not always successful, but I'm always aiming.

Heh... I'm not sure I could handle "much more to come"... the kind words and well-wishes I've received from everyone have been an absolutely incredible, totally unexpected, and deeply humbling unadvertised and pleasent side affect to this award. I'm in awe and in dept to the community that gave me the opportunity to serve and learn at the same time. A person couldn't have asked for more.

I have to say, most of my day has been "just ok". Seeing that Jeff received this has put me over the moon. Jeff, not only are you worthy of this accolade, but there should be a "Lifetime Achievement" equivalent named after you.

I can still remember some of my earliest convos with you all those years ago on that other forum, and in the near-decade since then, you haven't changed a bit. You're still the most helpful, kind, honest, and creative DBA I've been privileged to know in any capacity.

Congrats, Jeff! Well deserved!

Gosh... thanks, Mike. Those are some mighty kind words. It's safe to say that you're one of the folks I've known the longest in the world of SQL Server because of that nifty little forum. It's a shame they killed it right when folks were really starting to get active on it.

I don't take much time to read my daily subscription but I ALWAYS read the Jeff Molden articles. The award is well-deserved. And, now that I know you served in the Navy, I'd like to thank you for your time and dedication to the preservation of Liberty.

Thanks, Marilu. Those are a pair of awesome compliments. "Miss Liberty" is one of my favorite "people" and it was my pleasure to serve.

Heh... having a bit of fun... I know I'm a crusty ol' sailor with a white beard but I haven't quite started to grow any "Mold" on me, yet. There's no "L" in my name especially after being told to "get the 'L' out of here" so many times in my early days in the service.

Yeah, and it was very sudden. Funny thing is, I think it was a Google search for your name that led me here when I found myself itching for another good forum to join.

Jeff, can I please use your saying "..we should all carry forward: share the knowledge we’ve all fought so hard to learn." ? We can only learn when we first share.

Thank you to you all in the community for sharing your knowledge.

I guess it depends on what you're going to use it for.

Jeff,
It's an Excellent interview.

I don’t pick the subjects; they pick me.

Take the time, every day, to teach someone something new.


Wow...I love these lines.
