Done and Out

for a week. I'm leaving for vacation and leaving in the capable hands of Andy. He'll be sending out some canned editorials as he's pretty busy at work, may be some interesting articles coming our way soon, so if things don't appear, it's his fault :)

Actually things should be fine and I'm loading my Dell 9300 up with scripts and such to be ready for the trip. If I need to, I can sneak down a few blocks to the Jewish Mother, a Va Beach instituion/restaurant/bar/deli/wireless access spot, to help things along.

Had some interesting SQL discussions this week with friends. One looking to get the edition (Std, Enterprise, etc) from a server without it being running. The other working on performance issues, some funny interview stories, and more. Despite a slow SQL Server week in the news, it's been an interesting SQL Server week here.

Enjoy yourselves, get testing on SQL Server 2005, and send some more articles. I've got a bunch going now, but it seems to come in waves, so I'd rather have a few more weeks worth in the pipeline. You might think that no one will learn anything from you or that everyone else has already learned the mistake you just made, but I guarentee you're wrong. Write something down and I'll work with you to get it published.
