Blog Post #1

Bill Graziano invited me to start a blog on when he spoke at our June 2007 St. Louis SQL Server User Group.  I’ve been active online for over a decade answering questions in the Microsoft SQL Server Newsgroups and truly enjoy helping out in the SQL Server community.   I’d considered blogging before and didn’t want to make the commitment but, after mulling it over for a while, I think spending some of my time blogging is worthwhile.

I’m a jack-of-all-trades SQL Server DBA and developer going back to SQL Server 4.21a under Windows NT 3.1.  I expect most of my blog posts will be technical, inspired by issues from the newsgroups or by projects at work.  As I run into topics I think SQL Server professionals might find particularly interesting or useful, I plan to blog away.
