The site you have created over the past five years has been a godsend to SQL Pros everywhere! You all must be commended. I have also worked with the Red-Gate team and they are damn good too and I think it will be a good match.
Thanks for all your help in the past and best wishes for your future endeavors. I know you will do well!
I'm assuming you got a better price than the YouTube founders. That makes sense since (a) SQLServerCentral is a damn sight more useful; and (b) you've earned it.
I always feel a pang of regret when something that's part of my daily life is sold. It happens so much, whether it be great software or a web site created by enthusiasts. Fortunately Red-gate isn't a big corporate interested in destroying competition. I know they're enthusiasts too, so this shouldn't be a negative thing for your readers and contributors. I'm very pleased for you guys. You deserve to get some return for what has mostly been a labour of love. Congratulations!
Sadly I won't see any of you at PASS this year. I'm still recovering financially from last year's trip! Hopefully next year.
You did get more than the YouTube guys - didn't you?
Wish you 3, all the best for your future.
I really recomed your effort to put this site success and I learnt lot by contributing to this site
Congratulations and good luck for the future. Most of (the little) that I know about SQL Server I've learnt from your site - so a big thankyou.
Begging letter follows
great! hopefully you have a nice fortune.
some questions remaining:
Is SSC still free in the future?
Are Brian, Steve, Andy, still in the editorial board?
Excellent news guys, and good luck for the future.
This site has saved my neck on a couple of occassions, always insightful, always informative, and sometimes great for a bloody good laugh.
Congratulations are definitely in order for you all and hope that the future continues to grow just as rosy.
This site is the best site on the internet and I hope that will be in the future too. ReedGate is a good company.Andy, Brian and Steve I wish you the best.
