My name is Michael Rys. I am a program manager in the SQL Server Engine team at Microsoft and have so far been blogging at
Starting today, I will move my main blogging activity from SQLJunkies over to here. I will continue to post there for a while, but everything you see there you will see here too ;-). The signal/noise ratio at SQLJunkies in comments is just unbearable, but I still have a readership there that won't follow me quickly.
Please let me know if you want me to copy the old postings (at least the ones that are still relevant) over to here.
