    It's as good a time as any to push out one of my backlogged SSIS posts. It wasn't any fun jousting with 0xC0047041 (SQLIS) last year, but a little more caffeine put me over the top that night. Heh. You can only stare at the SQL Server 2005 Management...

    Patent applications to become a full contact sport?

    In theory, I support the idea of public review of patent applications, but I can also imagine that this could get very, very ugly in a big hurry. Open Call From the Patent Office (washingtonpost.com) Should be fun to watch either way!
