RealSQLGuy - Helping You To Become A SQL Hero

My real name is Tracy McKibben. I’ve been working with database products for over 20 years, starting with FoxBase running on Xenix. Over the years, I’ve worked with all flavors of FoxPro, some Clipper and dBase, and starting somewhere around 1995, SQL Server. I’ve even dabbled with Oracle, though I’ve tried to block out all memories of that experience. At present, I’m the Senior SQL Server DBA and the DBA Team Supervisor for Pearson VUE. All opinions expressed on this site are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Pearson VUE.

What Happens In Vegas…

…stays in Vegas, except when it comes to chocolate. After walking more than 1500 miles over the past 9 months, 30 of those in Las Vegas last week, I’ve earned a treat. What’s this have to do with SQL Server? Absolutely nothing…

eiffelThat doesn’t mean it’s not relevant to this blog however. You see, Vegas is full of interesting sights, sounds (and smells) – there’s something for everyone, you can find anything there.

I saw a replica of the Eiffel Tower (cool!)

I dropped by the grand opening of a new Microsoft store and spent some time playing with a Surface Pro 2 (it’s on my Christmas wish list, hint, hint).

I strolled through ancient Rome.

I ate.

I ate some more.

I drank.

I saw a talking tree (unrelated to previous item).

I walked. A lot.

And, I found a store dedicated to M&M’s. I’ve known for some time that you can order personalized M&M’s, but while wandering around in that store last week, an idea struck me. I should have them make me some RealSQLGuy M&M’s! I can’t afford to eat them, but they’ll make a great conversation piece and prizes to give away at a presentation. So, I did it – RealSQLGuy now comes with a hard candy shell and a chocolately center, guaranteed to melt in your mouth, not in your hand. Keep it clean people…

Look for them to make an appearance soon. Local user group meeting, the office, perhaps Tampa?
