I hope you all had a great break and so far 2005 has been kind to you.

Nope - I haven't stopped blogging - I have just had a lovely long Christmas break which was preceded by a one week development lab with four of our SQL Server 2005 early adopters - and last week was.... catch up/planning.

As for this year - my next six months is very much about helping UK ISVs who are early adopters - a combination of labs, training, briefings and technology reviews should keep me busy. Around that I will be helping to deliver the MSDN Roadshows this year (day one is 100% VS.NET 2005 and day two is 100% SQL Server 2005) and various other events.

And this blog site should continue to see a steady stream of posts around SQL Server and other technologies of interest to ISVs.

I hope you stick with me ... all the best - eric.
