  • What will I be doing at PASS?

    I felt horrible last year when I missed the MVP Deep Dives book signing at PASS.  I took part instead in a focus group that ran a little late, and still regret it.  So this year I wanted to get a jump on where I'll be, and this will help me stick with it.  So if you'll be at PASS and want to track me down to meet me, catch up, or ...

  • Please Vote: Windowing Enhancements in SQL Server

    Back in January 2007, SQL guru Itzik Ben-Gan posted a series of MS Connect enhancement requests concerning windowing function enhancements.  Those who have used the ROW_NUMBER(), RANK(), DENSE_RANK(), and NTILE() functions on SQL 2005 and 2008, you already know how useful they are.  They simplify code and can improve performance ...

  • MVP Award Renewal

    On October 1, I received my email stating that I was again renewed as an MVP. One of the greatest honors I have ever received is the Microsoft MVP Award, certainly it is the greatest professional honor.
