Well, I will be seeing everyone in Nashville at the SQL Saturday #51. My session will be on Monitoring Data Changes With Change Data Capture so I am already checking into trying to do some kind of really crazy type of demo to really underpin the technology and the speed and resourcefulness that it brings to the DBAs arsenal…Mwahahahahaha!..(cough)..excuse me. Anywho, Perpetual Technologies, Inc (PTI), my employer is also a sponsor of the event so look for me to be by the table at least part of the day….I am thinking that I will maybe blog all day about the event in a series of miniblogs …..have to tie that in to twitter maybe by using the hashtag in the title…Hmmmm….

Or maybe the lunch room will be free and I will just do some ad hoc stuff…..that would be pretty cool as well….in any case, it should be a really good time….So if you haven’t signed up yet then be sure to do so or risk being labeled a LAMO!
