Steve, I just want to say thanks! I love the podcasts and look forward to them. The content and subject areas get me thinking about the things I should be focusing on. The video is cool and the audio only is great when I'm on the run. The music ROCKS and I like the out takes and pics of the ranch too. Keep up the great work, it is appreciated.

Steve,

The podcast islousy {in timingw00t}, because this is yet another great podcast that I want to listen and have to try and find the time in my already busy schedule.

What'd be cool is if I can find a job listening to podcasts and file a report to upper management!

All this aside, great podcast. Subscribed. On my iPod. Listening *after* I get to work, because it is 'work-related', cuz they pay me to know my stuff, and SQLServerCentral provides great stuff.

Hi Steve
Just wanted to let you know that your podcast is a part of my daily routine. I browse the newsletter, try to answer the "Question of the Day" correctly, and then I watch your your podcast. I believe it helps me stay excited about SQL Server, which I work on for at least 9 hours a day. Keep up the great work!Tongue

Steve,

I've become a great fan of the 'voice of the DBA'. It is extraordinarily hard to do this sort of thing. I know several people who have tried without success, but yours are a resounding success. --and then how on earth do you do a daily podcast?

I once tried to do this myself a few years back, for a specialised internet broadcasting channel. I think my worst problem was that I couldn't get Wayne's World out of my head. Mercifully, the money ran out before I was able to make a complete idiot of myself. I'm currently trying to persuade Robyn Page to do podcasts for Simple-Talk.

Yes, I really enjoyed the April 1st outtakes!


Best wishes,

Phil Factor

Steve ... I certainly enjoyed listening to your ideas and opinions regarding the money that MS is "holding back" for talent that they may capture in the acquisition (rhymes so close to inquisition) of Yahoo. I would just like to reply from experience in the IT business one lemma regarding the art of capturing and retaining "valuable" human resources - in any business.

Lemma: Minimize what you have to pay them in real cash per pay period, maximize the "soft lures" such as stock options, titles, flexible hours, travel, etc., but at recognition time throw them a bone big enough to not reduce their perception of recognition, zeal in their work, and basic performance.

It's a fascinating balance of minimizing risk and expense for the employer, while acquiring and sustaining the maximum amount of talent over a long period of time. The most successful software companies are those with management that have this innate skill.

Thank you again for your PodCast. Very good. Smile
Ed Lyons, Raleigh NC.
