The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).

I’m a Pain

Or maybe I’m misreading that I’m supposed to be helping to alleviate pain. Either way, next Thursday, June 17, I’ll be taking part in the Quest Pain of the Week webcast: Easy Ways to Fix Hard SQL Server Problems – Without a Guru. It should be a lot of fun. Please stop by and ask hard questions.

Can we ask what the average air speed of an unlaiden african/european swallow mix would be?

Posted by Grant Fritchey on 11 June 2010

As long as we're working from the baseline that a swallow needs to beat it's wings 43 times every second in order to remain aloft.
