Have you had a good week?
This past week has been both horrendously busy and challenging for me, although strangely I actually enjoyed it and dare I say, I quite like it that way. There is just something about getting stuck into tough projects that brings out the best in us DBA’s and challenges us to raise our game to new heights. Do you get what I am talking about?
So in light of this weeks events, please forgive this rather lighter than usual edition of “Something for the Weekend”, where you will no doubt notice that the usual witty banter (or not) and commentary that my regular 3 readers love, has this week been omitted.
