    • 1 Comments
    I'd like to talk about storage.. well, backup. Not SQL Server backup, just "I wish to keep a copy of all of my files and make sure that I don't lose everything if the house burns down". This happens to include my SQL Server databases, though that's not...

    So, I've been back at Microsoft a few weeks now, and there are some things that are just overwhelming. I like to tell people that being here is like "drinking from a firehose", and you only hope you can keep up... It is a lot of fun, though. As I have...
