  • Blog Post: Is everyone a winner?

    Without getting into the philosophical question for the ages “Is everyone a winner?”, the question came up about Finalists­® over the weekend. Because we had to kick a number of entries that didn’t meet the simple rules outlined in the Official Contest Rules®, we have fewer than 15 qualified entries...
  • Blog Post: Some of you have already voted... for your favorite SQL Hero... the rest of you are overdue!

    Our survey got posted to Connect a little while back (life and work kept getting in the way of posting all the entries). Those of you who spend more time on Connect than is strictly healthy have already seen it and voted. There are a lot of overachievers in the SQL Server community, I tell ya’. For the...
  • Blog Post: Just in time...

    The end of the contest runway is fast approaching... and we've got some great entries! To celebrate, the WHS team has released Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 so that it will be ready and waiting if/when your entry wins. But you have to play to win, right?

The "why" question is a little more interesting... You need one because: Your contest...
  • Blog Post: Can IT Pros play, too?

    When more than one person whose opinion I respect asks me a "silly" question, I have to reevaluate my assessment of "silly." So... Yes. IT Pros can play, too. It's in the Official Contest Rules ™. I promise. There are no restrictions on the kinds of deliverables that you can check into CodePlex and submit...
  • Blog Post: Can SQL Heroes around the world play, too?

    Since I've gotten the question more than once, I'll answer it here and then point y'all back to the Official Contest Rules ™. See section 3.0 which is entitled "Can you enter?" The simple answer is: Yes. Unless, of course, you work for Bill (like I do) or live in a couple of countries that are off-limits...
