  • I'm speaking at SQL Saturday #250 in Pittsburgh!

A good deal of the information in those posts are still relevant.  I am in the process of ...

  • PASS Board of Directors Election - Making Progress

    It is almost time to cast your vote in this year's PASS BoD Elections.  Things have changed considerably since the first PASS BoD election that I participated in.  That was in 2001.  I hadn't even been to a Summit or even a chpater meeting yet.  I had registered for the PASS Summit 2001 (which was postponed to Jan 2002  ...

  • 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 ...
