Comments posted to this topic are about the item Tracy Hamlin, Exceptional DBA of 2010, on what it means to go the extra mile
I am a bit disappointed in the article's extreme brevity of the technical aspects of her accomplishments: what about transaction rates? Use of the data? Types of databases?
Congrats again Tracy. It is good to see this kind of information and candidness from the winner.

Tracy, you are truly inspirational!
You are right, family comes first. But technology, especially databases, is so intriguing. As a DBA you can use your logic and organization talents at the same time.
Way to go!
Well done Tracy. Believe it or not there are companies where developers do not want to engage with DBAs regarding schema design or even code improvements.
I wonder how Tracy juggled three kids and a hobby with famously long and unsociable hours DBAs do, not to mention grumpy old men culture among DBAs??
