Every DBA needs a vacation (How to Raise Your Game By Doing Nothing) and I’m most certainly no exception to the rule. In the not too distant future I will be taking my leave of you for a short while, meaning there will be no weekly post for you to enjoy. Fear not however, for I shall of course return.

As is often the case in life, with misfortune also comes opportunity for those who are prepared to see it and brave enough to take it. So whilst I’m away I would be delighted for one of you to take the SFTW baton from my hand and play host for a week or two. You might want stick with the existing format or even add your own spin on it. It’s your call and opportunity to shine.

I’m delighted to announce that next week UK SQL Server community champion and speaker Neil Hambly(Blog|Twitter) will be your host! I’m really looking forward to seeing what content Neil chooses to share with us and hope that you will make him feel welcome here. There’s one more host slot up for grabs the following week so drop me an email if you’re interested.

Here’s your weekly roundup of SQL Server Blog Posts, News and Techie Stuff. Enjoy!
