SELECT Hints, Tips, Tricks FROM Hugo Kornelis WHERE RDBMS = 'SQL Server'

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

On an otherwise unremarkable day, almost twelve years ago (early 2006 to be exact), I got an email from Adam Machanic. I don’t have it anymore, but I do remember the management summary of the contents: “Hey Hugo, you should start blogging. Peter DeBetta and I have a site where we can host you”.


Until then, I had never even considered blogging. Adam’s email got me thinking. The rest, as they say, is history. My first post here was made in July 2006.


And now, December 2017, it is time for my last post. Not because I stop blogging, but because I am moving. It was great to be on a site where I didn’t have to worry about hosting, spam filtering, search engine optimization, hosting cost, and all kinds of other small and large issues. I could just write content, publish it, and be done. And it was a huge honour to be on the same site as so many of the biggest names in our industry.


But the times have changed, and so have my plans. I have been working on a new project for the SQL Server community for some time now. The project is not yet ready to be announced so I can’t disclose anything. But I do know that this project has to go to its own website. And because of that, it makes sense for me to have my blog on that website as well. So from now on, you will find my blog posts on


I really want to thank Adam and Peter for their efforts to make blogging easy for me. I also want to thank Adam (again!), as well as Brent Ozar and Richie Rump, for their invaluable help in setting up my new site and moving my content to its new location. Thanks!


But most of all, I want to thank my readers. Those who commented on my posts with compliments, questions, or corrections Those who sent me emails. And those (the vast majority) that just read my posts without commenting. Without you, all of this would be rather pointless. Therefor, I hope that all of you will continue to read the great posts from other bloggers here – but I also hope that you will follow me to my new home, and see what I have planned for the future.


And with that, it is now time for my final goodbye to
