My Favourites Of Paul Randal

By Ramkumar (LivingForSQLServer), 2012/11/15

As a new blogger, It is a little pain for me to blog on a technical topic.  

It starts from learning, exprimenting, being comfortable with topic, decide what to write and how to convey, make sure no or minimum technical inaccuracies,  preparing relavent demo scripts, formatting and so on.

But while going thru his blog post count, varity, depth and presentation style, I have no words.

Here is some of my favourite drops in an Ocean. Would like to explore and continue sharing my favourites whenever I find time.
