Happy Memorial Day 2009

By Steve Jones,

It's Memorial Day in the US today, and most people in technology get the day off to relax with their families. I'm taking some time to work around the ranch, getting a few things done that I've been putting off for some time.

When I was younger, Memorial Day marked the beginning of summer. It was the sign that vacations were beginning, people were out of school, and the oceanfront in Virginia Beach would start getting busy.

Things are different in Denver, but it's still a marker for me that summer is starting. Hopefully everyone is enjoying their day and not working on SQL Server. If you are, or if you're just checking in, I've got a blooper reel filled with some of the mistakes I've made over the last few months.
