Inside SQL Server... the book

I finished the actual writing of my Storage Engine volume today.  I thought that would be good fodder for my first blog entry.

Inside SQL Server 2005: The Storage Engine is now done. The last chapter was done a few weeks ago, but I still had to write front matter, including six pages of acknowledgements. There are still a few more chapter reviews that I have to do, and we are still waiting for Jim Gray's foreword, and he is stuck in Venice without a working laptop. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

MS Press assures me that the book will be on the shelves in plenty of time for the SQL PASS conference in Seattle this November.

I was having a race with my daughter who was trying to finish her doctoral dissertation. I'm not sure yet who won.

Excellent!  We don't use SQL2005 here mainly because our in house developed application has a shelf life (supposedly) of October 2006, so there are no plans to upgrade to 2005...Boooooooooooooo!

However, I will still order myself a copy and have a good read!
