Arrived in Barcelona - The goods

DSC00015Got in Barcelona alright. Had a goo time so far. Big bag of good with yet another unwearable t-shirt. Am I the only skinny person attending these conferences? An XL t-shirt when you wear XS is ludicrous.

Here's a picture with all this content. Look at the size of this tshirt, it's mental! It's probably going to join the rank of numerous ones that I use exclusively for DIY.

The bag is cool though, very good quality, and such an obvious tool to make your colleagues jealous when you go back to the office. I'll keep my Muji though, I like my bags like I like my laptops: slim.

Working with Sql user instances

Just a quick note, as I've not been very active on this blog for the last few weeks. I still have a lot of content in the pipeline so expect a new tips'n'tricks article next week. I've been preparing some stuff to publish at TechEd as well, so if you are going to be around let me know I'll show you some fun stuff.

Also I'll be releasing a tool to help work with sql express user instances and attached database files that I've been working on. Hopefully you'll find this useful.

Stay tuned...
