Welcome to my blog - I'm going to use this site to share my thoughts, ideas and experiences with SQL Server & some VB/C#.NET.  I'll most likely concentrate on the current 2000 and pending 2005 release which should be with us soon.  The second beta is just round the corner.   I'm particularly interested in the CLR hosting, replication enhancements and DTS. 

I'm hopefully going to PDC this year, I haven't heard or seen any published information yet - I'll post an update when a date has been confirmed. 

Update:
