  • PASS 2009 Lifetime PASSion Award

    A HAPPY RETIREMENT January 1st, 2010 marked a very special day for me.  It was the first time in the past ten years in which I had no official PASS responsibility at the HQ level.  (I'm still serving in the local PASS chapter here in Nashville, along with the awesomeness that is DrSQL (blog | twitter) and the whackness that is Joe ...

  • What Three Events Brought You Here?

    Whiners and Whingers Get Wedgies Yes, I deserve a Wedgie There I was, just a couple weeks back, whining that I wasn't getting tagged by friends when a new meme comes out.  Sure enough, when my friend, Paul Randal (blog | twitter), starts a new meme with me as one of the first handful of people tagged, it's taken me a full ten days to ...

  • Where You Can Find Me At the PASS Summit

    In previous years, I hardly had time to sit down and catch a breather at a PASS Summit.  Between my duties as an officer of PASS, exhibit hall time with Quest Software (my employer), speaking in my own sessions, and meeting with PASS volunteers and community organizers, I was busy from the crack of dawn until midnight all week ...

  • Starting the Travel Meme

    'Tis the season for travel!  With the PASS Summit just around the corner and lots of other interesting events waiting in the wings, such as TechEd Europe, lots of IT people will finally be allowed to stretch their wings (and budgets) to get in some first class training. I've been a very frequent flier for a long time and seldom ...

  • Do You Have What It Takes?

    I was engaged in a conversation recently where the topic under discussion was ''What defines an ''A'' class player?'' Others in the conversation were trying to get a handle on 'greatness', because they desire to create an ''A'' class Team in their work environment.

  • When Do You Know That You Know

    Why, when you can help others, that's when!  In my role as a senior Moderator with the MSDN SQL Forums, I am often asked ''How do I become a Moderator on the Forums?'' I am quite appreciative and heartened when folks indicate, and then demonstrate, their interest in helping others. Volunteering to assist on the MSDN Forums ...
