Congrats to the Winner


October 1, 2009 by Mike Hillwig

As Brent Ozar mentioned in his blog post, the winner of the all-expense paid trip to PASS is Jen McCown, aka @MidnightDBA. I’m really happy for her. Don’t get me wrong, I’m jealous as hell. Jen wanted this as much as I did, perhaps more. She produced a ton of amazing content, and the community is better off for the work she did.  

I have a lot of good stuff coming up professionally. We’re planning on consolidating our database servers, and this should give me a ton of good stuff to write about. I’m really enjoying my time with and look forward to having the opportunity to contribute.

    Thanks, Mike. You kicked some major SQLbutt, too.

    I look forward to reading more from the Cranky DBA!

    Erin -Great post. Great reminders. I’ve bleggod in the past that sometimes dreams may feel scary to chase after but if you don’t do it you’ll miss out on all of the enjoyment in the process.. Kind of like jumping into a pool . You hesitate at first Afraid the water may be cold Once you finally jump in you normally were pretty happy you did (eventually once you get used to it ) Great point about living life like each day matters Because, well, each life does matter. Someday will be our last I am also praying for your friend, Susan right now and for a speed recovery and good long term prognosis. Thanks for sharing!

    ATF Statistics. The new math. Every single time that I learn more about statistical claims and how the numbers are arrived at from — the ATF, unemployment reports, the so-called sex-based wage gap, the real deficit and real (long-term) national debt, etc — the more I find the numbers knowingly manipulated and promoted by those with their political agendas.

  6. you are in point of fact a just right webmaster. The web site loading pace is amazing. It seems that you’re doing any distinctive trick. Moreover, The contents are masterwork. you have done a wonderful activity on this matter!

  7. I am curious to find out what blog system you have been using? I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It¦s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
