  • Presenting at the San Francisco SQL Server User Group - 12-Sep-2012

  • NomCom Time

    Well, it is official...  there is a race for the community seats on the PASS NomCom.  I am very pleased to see that we have 12 people who decided to put their names forward for this task.  This is largely a thankless job that takes a great deal of time, judgement, and consideration. I have put my name forward as one of those people ...

  • Speaking at Atlanta.MDF on March 12

    I am fortunate enough to be speaking to a user group with a really cool name - Atlanta.MDF (Microsoft Database Forum).  Although I visit Atlanta often, it usually involves running from one councourse to another and rarely do I get the chance to visit the user group.  I have made it to the user group on several occassions in the past, but ...

  • Rick Review: PASS Summit 2011 - DBA-104-S

    I recently got my DVD set from the PASS 2011 Summit and started to look through all of the sessions that I missed.  Wow!  I can't wait to go through all of these!  It will take me a while. Since this is a new year and many people are often greeted with new challenges (like a new server to manage), I decided that this session would ...

  • Financial Transparency is Good for Community

    I  was recently in a conversation with several people that had previously organized one or more community events. The topic evolved into a discussion of Sponsors, and eventually, fund raising. Being able to adequately raise the funds necessary is critical to producing a successful event. Many vendors will readily provide products for raffles ...

  • Paying for Free

    It seems like there is a widespread malaise in the country these days. Everyone's clamoring to cut taxes -but no one wants to have their neighborhood school closed, or fear bridges collapsing underneath them, or damage their automobiles while driving over deteriorating streets and roads. They expect Fire and Police personnel to magically appear ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 8

    In this post, Logistics centered around how to get to downtown from the airport (SEA - commonly referred to as SEA-TAC for Seattle - Tacoma). As you would expect, the Seattle airport is almost always busy.  Some airports have periods where almost no activitiy is going on.  That is rare here.  Signage is good throughout the airport ...

  • PASS Summit 2011 - What you can expect at the Conference - Part 7

    I really don't think that you can get the full flavor of the Summit unless you delve into Social Networking.  There are multiple vehicles for social networking.  Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn, and Yelp are all tools in the Social Networking Toolbox.  At the Summit, the best one of these is Twitter.  With twitter, yo ...
