  • IT Horror Stories - Managers Run Amuck!

    It seems like managers, so often, either go way overboard or go into hybernation and do way to little. This month, I had the pleasure and horror to hear two stories of managers run amuck with power. The first is from a friend and IT professional I'll call Tony. Tony said this:I worked for a firm as an IT manager when it was going through a ...

  • Why I Do Not Support The Current PASS ExeCo Slate

    I read the PASS Officer Election announcement from June 15th with a bit of trepidation.  There was something about the announcement which made me uncomfortable, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. As a bit of background, the PASS ''officers'' are also known as the Executive Committee (ExeCo), as described in the PASS Bylaws in ...

  • A Simple Request

    I would like for this “Read Article” link at the SSWUG.org website to take readers interested in my writing to my writing and not to a screen to sign up for a service. This isn’t the first time I’ve asked about this – I’ve requested my work not be linked on this website in the past. I believe publishing my work without my permission is not ...

  • Managing Technical Teams Series Landing Page

    Introduction  I'm taking Brent Ozar's (Blog | @BrentO | SQLPeople) suggestion regarding my ramble-rant about the software business.

  • My Last "Catch-Up" Post for 2010 Content

    I did a lot of writing in 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of keeping all of that writing equally distributed throughout all of the channels where I'm active. So here are a few more posts from my blog, put on-line during the months of November and December 2010, that I didn't get posted here on SQLBlog.com: 1. It's Time to ...

  • Paying It Forward With Project Phoenix

    It seems like I've known Arnie Rowland (blog | twitter) since the dawn of time.  But it's really more like the last several years, or at least since Arnie achieved Microsoft MVP status, that I really got to know him.  Arnie has also been trying to get me to speak to the user group he leads in Portland, but coordinating it has ...

I slipped into the vault and managed to grab a million bucks while no one was paying attention. Quietly, I slipped out of the vault and made it home with the money. My logic? The money was there ...

  • PASS Governance Discussion with Guest Contributors

    The topic that never seems to lie low for long - the selection and election process for PASS governing directors.  (I also wrote extensively on the qualities of a good director-level candidate in this blog post).  I decided to create a spoke on my blog specifically for discussions around PASS governance and related issues called ...
