The Oscars

By Steve Jones,

I'm shutting things down for a week here, actually heading to the mountains for a holiday with the family to ski and board as is each person's preference. We decided on a winter vacation this year and so next week while you're typing in T-SQL, I should be bundled up and moving faster than normal, though hopefully slower than 9.8m/s/s down the slopes.

Since it's a holiday, I like to get your opinions, and Oscar season is here, I have an easy Friday poll for you.

What movie would you recommend from the past year?

I've seen a few, but not many with a busy schedule and kids. In fact, I might have seen more kids movies in 2008 than adult ones, which is a little sad. I re-watched a lot while I was running, but as we pack up today to leave, I'll have the chance to swing by Blockbuster and am looking for recommendations.

It's not just for me, however. We're a big community, and who knows, you might sway one of your fellow DBAs or developers to go pick one up this weekend. So let us know what you like.
