Something odd was going on with the links for this. It was saved as a draft on the 7th, and published on the 8th. Hopefully both links work...

Really great post, Rob! I very much like the mix of optimizer and SSIS information-- I don't tend to read up much on SSIS, but I really enjoy reading your posts.

I did get a little bit of a laugh from this sentence:

"This is all very straight-forward stuff, and information that most people are fully aware of."

You may be spending too much time with geeks, Rob. :)

Thanks for throwing your hat in the T-SQL Tuesday ring Rob! As someone who is just getting more comfortable with execution plans and the query optimizer, and has very little knowledge of SSIS, this is easy-to-understand and helpful info.

Always a pleasure, Jes. I haven't missed a T-SQL Tuesday yet. :)
