Dear Andy, Brian, and Steve,

Excellent news! This is one of the best technical sites on the web and it sounds like you fellas have made a terrific move to not only further your careers but make SQL Server Central stronger into the future.

I wish all of you the best of luck.

The site you have created over the past five years has been a godsend to SQL Pros everywhere!  You all must be commended.  I have also worked with the Red-Gate team and they are damn good too and I think it will be a good match.  

Thanks for all your help in the past and best wishes for your future endeavors.  I know you will do well!

Shawn

I'm assuming you got a better price than the YouTube founders. That makes sense since (a) SQLServerCentral is a damn sight more useful; and (b) you've earned it.

I always feel a pang of regret when something that's part of my daily life is sold. It happens so much, whether it be great software or a web site created by enthusiasts. Fortunately Red-gate isn't a big corporate interested in destroying competition. I know they're enthusiasts too, so this shouldn't be a negative thing for your readers and contributors. I'm very pleased for you guys. You deserve to get some return for what has mostly been a labour of love. Congratulations!

Sadly I won't see any of you at PASS this year. I'm still recovering financially from last year's trip! Hopefully next year.

You did get more than the YouTube guys - didn't you?

Wow, awesome news for you guys, congratulations! If I was going to be at PASS this year I'd shake your hands, but I'm cheap and couldn't get anybody to pick up the bill, so maybe next year.

Redgate is a good company, and here's hoping they don't screw up the site.

Congratulations and good luck for the future.  Most of (the little) that I know about SQL Server I've learnt from your site - so a big thankyou.

 

Begging letter follows :-)

Are Brian, Steve, Andy, still in the editorial board?

Excellent news guys, and good luck for the future.

This site has saved my neck on a couple of occassions, always insightful, always informative, and sometimes great for a bloody good laugh.

Congratulations are definitely in order for you all and hope that the future continues to grow just as rosy.
