Catching Up

Posted in Sql and Xml | General at Monday, January 3, 2005 6:02 AM Pacific Standard Time

Well I'm finally getting caught up here at work after taking two weeks off. I must say that being a dad is a great thing and I would highly recommend it to anyone, but it is a lot of work :)

Prior to my wife going into labor on Sunday, December 19, I took a the Designing and Implementing Databases with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition Exam. I passed it without studying at all and took it since my free exam certificate was going to expire on December 31, 2004. The test seemed pretty fair and now I have to decide if I actually want to persue a certification or not. I think the main reason I passed it was that I took the advice of one of my fellow SQL Server MVPs and quit using Enterprise Manager to manage SQL Server and instead learned all the T-SQL syntax for doing things. This taught me quite a bit.

I was planning on posting this on Sunday evening but I got caught up in a much bigger event. :) Now that I'm caught up on my blog reading from the last two weeks I'm hoping to start blogging more. I'm also gearing up to revamp the SqlXml.org website for Yukon. If you have any suggestions let me know.
