  • Stand-Up Cloud Computing

    When I was very young, I asked my uncle for career advice. He went silent, thinking for a bit, and then said: “People who work sitting down make more than people who work standing up.” I’m not certain how true that really is, but my career as a technology professional has led me to work in a seated position for most of my life. Turns out, that’s ...

  • What Matters Most

    The end of the year is a study in extremes. For many, it is a time of merriment and celebration. For some, it is yet another day to survive. I believe most people reflect on the past year as it draws to a close. We think about the things that happened over the year: the accomplishments of ourselves and others; goals set and met; goals not met; ...

  • Book Review (Book 2) - Rhetoric by Aristotle

The book I chose for July 2011 was Rhetoric, by Aristotle. You can read it here for free: Why I chose this Book: I read this long ago, but I would ...

  • Head in the Clouds–Eyes on the Books

    I normally post technical topics here on this blog, but I’m extending this post a bit to include a little professional development. Don’t worry; there’s some tech (and Distributed Computing tech, no less) in this post as well. I recently presented a few sessions on a “SQL Cruise” to Alaska (more on that here) and one ...

  • Computer books are dead. Well, some of them, anyway.

    I read a lot. I mean a LOT. It seems that computer professionals have much in common with medical professionals – we have to read in order to stay on top of our game. For me, this used to mean web sites, magazines, and other print medium, and of course lots of books. I’ve even written several computer books myself and had them published. ...

  • 2010 Goals Review

    Introduction Earlier this year, I responded to Tim Ford's (Blog / Twitter) tag (in a post about 2010 Resolutions and Themeword) with 2010 Themeword and Goals. Let's see how I did. Resolutions 1. I need to take better care of Andy. On this, I failed. I took even worse care of myself than before. I have to address this in 2011. You can help ...

  • An Abbreviated History of Andy, Part 1

    Introduction After Paul Randal (Blog – @PaulRandal) tagged him in a post about the three events that brought him here, Brent Ozar (Blog - @BrentO) tagged me in his cleverly titled You may ask yourself, How did I get here?  So. How did I get here? 1. Christy I recently read an article about how some relationships help the people in ...

  • The Three Things that Brought Me Here

    I've been asked to explain three major events that brought me to where I am today. That's a tall order for me, since I view everything as a continuum of multiple small events. But there are some ''seminal'' events that tend to either show or dictate a further direction, so in the context of working with technology in general and SQL Server in ...

  • Did You Know? My book is at the printers!

    I know it's been a while since my last post, and there is a specific reason for that, which I am going to tell you about. On February 5th, I emailed to my editor the LAST chapter of my new book, after the author reviews and all comments from the editors were answered. I was technically done, except for a bit of work on the Intro, etc. Less than an ...
