  • 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 ...

  • Did You Know? It's Official...I'm a Geek!

    I almost didn't respond to the request for an interview with Richard Morris of Simple Talk. There were a few strange things in the request that made me think it might be spam or phishing. But I asked some trusted colleagues, and found out it was for real, and you can read the result ...

  • [OT] Alive and kicking

    Wow! Would you believe that it’s almost five months since my last blog post? How time flies.   No, I have not forgotten about you. I know you’ve all been faithfully checking the site (or your feed) each day, maybe even each hour, to get my next post. What can I say? I’m sorry for keeping you waiting so long.   The truth is, that I have ...
  • Did You Know? My Son is Entertaining Bill Gates

    I can't help it; I'm a mother. I am so excited about what my son is doing that I just have to share it. My #2 son  is a budding actor and vocalist, and to earn money this summer he is working as a clown for a large organization that provides clowns, rides, games, balloon artists and magicians to local events. I found out several months ago ...

  • Upcoming speaking events

    I know I’ve been neglecting my blog lately, but I at least have a valid excuse this time. Four weeks ago, I received two emails on a single day, both inviting me to speak at two different Dutch events that will be held in the same week.   I replied “yes” to both mails, and since have been preparing my sessions. For those readers who would ...
