  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 4: Downtown Chicago

    Of the hundreds of cities that I've visited around the world, Chicago is one of my favorites. The food. The museums. The architecture. The scenery. It's all good - except for those outrageously cold winters. So I was really excited when my family agreed that they'd enjoy spending their summer vacation in the ''Second City'' as the midpoint for ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 3: Chicago Suburbs

    I've been to Chicagoland many times over the years. Winters are tough for a Southern boy like me. But summer in Chicagoland is one of the best experiences evah! One such magical experience was when I stumbled into a Taste of Chicago event back when that wasn't a wide-spread event. Irmagird. During the 1990's, when I worked for Deloitte, I ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 2: Indianapolis, Indiana

    For some people, Indianapolis means one thing, and one thing only - the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (a.k.a ''The Brickyard'')  and the Indianapolis 500. In my case, it means several times speaking at IndyPASS, the local SQL Server User Group, over the last 10 years. I first spoke at IndyPASS with the then head of ...

  • SQLVacation Postcard Day 1: Louisville, Kentucky

    Along the banks of the mighty Ohio River, in sight of the shores of Indiana, lies beautiful Louisville, KY. Louisville is a city I've long felt connected to. (No, not because I drink bourbon, although that's a pretty good reason to like the place, come to think of it). It's because my brother, five years my senior, earned his graduate ...

  • Heading to SQL Sat NYC!

    I will be speaking at SQL Sat 380 in NYC on the topic of Basic Performance Monitoring with Perfmon.  I have delivered this session many times and is usually well attended.  The session is geared for the person who has heard of Perfmon but not used it.  This is very much a 100 level offering. The last time that I was in NYC for a ...

  • PASS Program Committee - Comments and Action

    Once again, I am serving on the PASS Program Committee this year for the App Dev Track.  As we are about to start the reviewing process, I had some thoughts that I wanted to share.  Last year, we had approximately 200 abstracts to review.  It should be a similar volume this year.  For me, abstracts usually go into three piles - ...

  • After Ten Years...

    Life goes on and sometimes it is just time to move on.  I am no longer with Scalability Experts.  Looking back at all of the time that I spent with them, I realize how fortunate that I was to be part of it. I am writing this because I wanted to thank Scalability Experts for supporting me in my involvement in the SQL Server ...
