I’ve got to figure out a good way to present a regular summary of what we do every week. Until I come up with a good idea, I’ll just post it here weekly.
Tomorrow (Friday) night at 11pm CST we present another stunning episode of DBAs at Midnight, this time featuring a Surprise Guest of Awesome, who has agreed to wear pants! That should narrow down your guesses a tad. Okay, I’ll tell: It’s newly Texanized Eric Humphreys, @Lotsahelp on Twitter! Log on at 10:30pm for the preshow: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dbasatmidnight
Articles: New on Petri.co.il are two of my articles: SQL Server Reporting Services: An Introduction and How to Create and Edit a Report in SQL Server Reporting Services
Car Talk: Our featured car talk (where Sean talks about database stuff in his car) this week: Managing your environment with DNS.
Groupies: We asked for Groupie help with the format of MP3 study drills.
Blogs: I wrote Holiday Review: Stuff I <3 as a sort of mini-gadget (and suchlike) review for the holidays. I also wrote my project kickoff blog post, RTFM365, wherein I detail my love of BOL and my committment to being called “Pinal” for an entire year. (Please, not you too.) I’ll have my first weekly RTFM365 sum-up published tomorrow…you can follow along with this blog series via the RTFM365 tag.
Webshow: This week we released the DBAs at Midnight webshow (#2.13) entitled “Turn the Damn Camera” (URL, preview). See show notes on the Groupies page. Last week we had a Thanksgiving webshow (preview on YouTube) where we appeared in our robes.
