I don't recall anyone saying the question was trivial - my recollection is that someone noted that for someone with his apparent level of experience, it seemed that there was no research done elsewhere, and the question did not say it was actually happening. (And actually, I just looked at the actual post again, and the reply was calm and rational, and the guy said "thanks" - all very low-key!) I can see where there could be some consternation if/when this does happen (I've actually seen the "single user" thing, but I happened to be the user who got in, so I was able to just reset it), but not to the point of suicide, surely. That would indicate a depth of unwellness better addressed outside of an online forum, yes? Not trying to be catty or snide here, just expressing my perspective.

Why do I suddenly have Mel Brooks belting out "The Inquisition" running through my head?

Now I want to go watch "History of the World..."

I didn't see you Rod, but bumped into a few folks I know from the Maidenhead group and elsewhere.
Some of those lectures were inspired.

Grant, Jason, Chris

Best photo bomb ever! I had the camera on sports / burst mode so I have 4 /5 shots... Now you see him / now you don't / now you see him sort of thing!

It was a very good SQL Bits, learnt alot, I think I managed 100% on the sessions I picked. I have in the past picked one or two that looked like something I could use but for whatever reason wasn't the right one to pick.

Chris, well I was in one of the helper tops and yellow / green / red jester hat! I did keep an eye out for you. I have to say though, being a helper, while fun, does suck up alot of the mingling time you have. Especially on the Saturday with the increased numbers. But I didn't see you!
One person did leave a message for me at the front desk and I finally met up with him around lunch time!

Cheers,

Rodders...

The guy in the brown top (or "jack") in the bottom right quadrant of this pic - that's my medikit exactly, and my own mother wouldn't recognise me in it. I caught the last 15 minutes of Grant Fritchey's talk on saturday morning when he was playing the audience, and wished I'd been there from the start; Hugo K's excellent MERGE presentation, and one about the new analytical functions in 2012 which was "fair". Friday night was awesome and helped take my mind off a friend's funeral the day before. Freakin' freaky. Funeral with bow, programming conference with bow.

Oops I was Hugo's room monitor... I took a picture of the people in the room, where you there by then? He joked that I should take the session...

I liked his session, but then I've only written two MERGE statements in anger!

Middle right, 15-20 minutes early. It was good, very thorough. Some excellent questions were asked - not too edge-case.
