Ed and I are actually working on a Pre-Con for Pittsburgh on this Black Arts Index Maintenance stuff. The two hour presentation just doesn't cover it all. We have info on what actually happened in 2005 with LOBs and how to handle them much better, more pain caused by Reorganize and how to deal with that, how to auto-magically find which columns are "ExpAnsive", a method on how to determine auto-magically determine what the initial fill factors for all tables in a database should be, and how to rebuild large indexes (more than 100GB, for example) without blowing out the MDF file, just to name a few of the things that I only touch on or haven't touched on in the 2 hour presentation.
Hopefully, we'll see you in Pittsburgh again this year, Ray.
