    Jeff and I are going to SQL Saturday Cincinnati this weekend.  It'll be the first time at that city's event for both of us.

    Heh… yeah… and I just found out parking isn’t free and that’s on top of the fact that they scheduled by two back-to-back sessions in different rooms.  πŸ™

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.

    When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 3|8 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. πŸ˜‰

    I’m also going to be in  Colorado Springs for the SQLSaturday on April 6th.  It’s been on my bucket list but couldn’t afford the flight money or time-wise.  Figured out that it’s a fair bit cheaper to fly to Denver, rent a car, and drive 90 minutes than it is to take a plane all the way and then still rent a car.

    On your way back home, stop at Skyline Chili and get a 4-way for your “before drive home meal”.  Guaranteed to keep you awake on the way home.  May even be forced to take a few rest stops on the way.

    Lived here in Colorado Springs for most of my life, never heard of them. I may have to check it out.

    Mike is definitely referring to Cincinnati when he’s talking about the chili.  As the one in the truck with Jeff, I can say that neither one of us want the other to eat it before we leave.

    They are a chain in the Cincinnati area.  The locals love it.

    Note that Mike said that the “locals love it,” but didn’t say anything about anyone else. πŸ˜‰

    Make sure you have plenty of fresh air available afterwards.

    You get much better gas mileage if you siphon it off and feed it to the air intake on the engine. πŸ˜€
