  • Did You Know: My Fall Travel Plans

    If you check my schedule, you'll see my summer and early Fall are spent mostly close to home. This is a good thing, because I have a book to write! But starting in October, I'll be gone at least every other week, with two trips to Europe and one to the East Coast of the US. In early October, I'll be presenting at a multi-city Summit for the ...

  • Did You Know? What Happened to My DVDs?

      Last December, I announced that my SQL Server Internals course was being made into a DVD series, and I then had several follow up posts over the next few months. I flew to NY 3 times, and have filmed 3 lessons. I was waiting to film the 4th, for which I already have the slides and the scripts, until the 2nd one was released, or at least ...

  • Did You Know? Microsoft is/are Still Fixing Bugs On SQL Server 2005

    I taught a private class last week near Portland (Oregon) and although the company has a lot of SQL Servers, there was not much excitement at all about SQL Server 2008. They still have many SQL Server 2000 installations, and are debating whether to upgrade those to 2005. Most of the interest was in the real value of the new 2005 features, like ...

  • Did You Know? or rather, What Did You Wish You Knew?

    Thank you so much for all the responses to the DBA Blunders post! As I mentioned, however, that question was asked on behalf of a friend of mine. Now I have a question of my own. I am currently training a group of new junior DBAs. One of them has already started assisting with some client operations, but is still closely supervised. For those ...

  • Did You Know? I'm going to Portland

    I almost titled this one with OT, but then I realized that this MY BLOG, and nothing is really off-topic, right? It's my blog and I can say whatever I want. :-) I get a real big kick out of seeing places in movies where I have actually been. I took my husband to NYC for his birthday in early March, and the first night, in our hotel room, the ...

  • Did You Know? My First Talk on SQL 2008

    I gave my first SQL Server 2008 presentation yesterday, and also spoke at a Launch Event for the first time. It was a terrific experience, primarily because it forced me to really start digging into SQL Server 2008. I had been doing so much 2005 training recently, I just really hadn't had a chance to really USE 2008, although I have dutifully ...

  • Did You Know? I'm in a Commercial!

    I just got back from New York, where I filmed Lesson 3 in my DVD series. This one was on the Logging and Recovery. I am finally getting the hang of this whole filming thing, and we finally finished one before it got too dark outside. So Chuck and I went outside and filmed a commercial. It was great fun! Maybe I'll do more of those, and forget all ...

  • Did You Know? My DVD is in Production!

      The editing for Lesson 1 is done and the production run of my DVD has started. We're expecting shipping to start in about 2 weeks. In addition, we've extended the pre-order price for another 5 days, so any orders that come in before Valentine's Day will get the special reduced price. Because this is taking a bit longer than we hoped, we ...
