For many years this blog has been about the great SQL Server samples which the SQL Server teams has brought to you.  Today marks a change in the direction of this blog.  For my readers interested in samples, thanks for hanging in there over the years and giving us great feedback.  But my career has moved on to a new place centered on optimizing the operational and management experience of SQL Server, and I will have some amazing news to share with you in that space.  If that isn't your cup of tea, thanks for being here for so many years and I wish you all the best.  Hopefully for new folks who are joining this blog hungry for information about the operations and manageability space, welcome!
