Jeff. Your ears should be burning. I've had a few conversations about you & fragmentation over here in Belgium with a bunch of people. Happy to hear you've stopped smoking. Keep it up!
Heh... man, I wish I was a fly on the wall for that one. Do you still have my email address? If not, lemme know and I'll PM it to you. I'd love to hear that bit o' scuttlebutt. My recent presentations on fragmentation have been quite heterodoxical, to say the least and I'm always interested in any feedback on that or discussion on fragmentation and Index Maintenance.
I do miss smoking... like I used to say, "smoking prevented 'fuming'". It also gave me an excuse to go outside and soak up some Vitamin D. I'm going to have to set an alarm and get outside more often.
How'd you like Belgium and the event in this nearly post-pandemic world? Having been a smoker, I'm in a couple of groups that make it a seriously high risk for me to get on a sewer-pipe with end-caps and wings any time in the near future so I have to "live a bit vicariously through the joys and experiences of others".
