Ok... first of all, the SQL Saturday in Colorado Springs was a blast and it was absolutely fantastic to finally meet Lynn Pettis. We've been friends and fellow SQL warriors on this forum for more than a decade but we'd never met. Not only met him but got some quality time talking with him. What a treat that was.
I'm giving my 2 "Black Arts" Index Maintenance sessions in Columbus, OH on Jun 8th. Ed has other commitments that week so it's going to be a long drive there and back alone.
I've timed my yearly trip to RI to see family with the SQL Saturday out there and submitted the 2 "Black Arts" sessions for that one.
And, I'm doing session #3 on the same subject remotely for the Baltimore users group this coming Tuesday night (5/21) .
And, finally, Ed and I are starting to put the final touches on the "Black Arts" Index Maintenance Precon for Pittsburgh. Unless all hell breaks loose, we should be able to make the precon submittal in 4 or 5 weeks.
