SQL Fool Happenings

It’s not plagiarism if I copy myself
I’m now a content contributor for the SQLServerPedia wiki!  So you may now begin to see some of my content on the wiki as well. If you’ve not heard of SQLServerPedia, you should check it out and consider contributing.

I’m trying to start a PASS Chapter for the Eastern Iowa region. So if you’re in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, or Waterloo, and are interested in attending or assisting with PASS, e-mail me at michelle @ sqlfool.com for more information.

Thanks to Peter for informing me of the image distortion issue. Apparently Internet Explorer

Jason Massie rocked my world with his post, SQL Twitter n00bs #SQLPASS. I’ve now been using it for a couple of weeks and have found a lot of benefit in it. It helps that I try to only follow SQL or other techy, non-spamming people. If you’re new to Twitter, check out Brent Ozar‘s Twitter 101, which really helped shed some light on some of Twitter’s idiosyncrasies. Oh, and if you’d like to follow me on Twitter, you can find me at http://twitter.com/sqlfool.
