Our next meeting will be on Thursday, February 1, 2007, at 6:30 PM. It'll be at the Training Concepts facility once again. With respect to swag, I have the following Microsoft Press SQL Server books to give out. We'll do the standard drawing to award the books.
- Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: The Storage Engine
- Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services Step-by-Step
- Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2005
I'd also like to announce our speaker, our very own Paul Shearer, of Affiliated Computer Services. Here are the details of Paul's presentation:

As with last time, if you are planning on attending and you have not already done so, please RSVP so I can inform our hosts of the approximate number so they can accomodate us accordingly. Also, I'll need to pass on to you the building code since the doors lock at 6 PM. If I've heard from you, you should see an email from me tomorrow afternoon with the code and contact numbers.
