Just a quick hit to let everyone know again that I will be speaking at the SQL Saturday event in Louisville,KY on October 24th! If you haven’t signed up for the event then make sure you get onto the SQL Saturday site and do so today. It should be a great day to learn some interesting aspects of SQL Server.  So people in the adjoining region should be looking to come on by. If they have enough space and rooms available then I may even be talked into doing a couple of impromptu sessions…like Jim Cramer’s Lightning Round! Maybe on some cool new features of 2008 or maybe even some handy ones like customizing transactional replication! Here is the current line up:
