Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya…


Hello All – since this is my first post on http://weblogs.asp.net since moving from the gotdotnet blogging site, I decided to revive my original “introduction” post. 


My name is Andrew Conrad, I am a Software Design Engineer with the Sql Server group at Microsoft.  I have been working on the ObjectSpaces product over the past year.  Before that I worked on SqlXml for a number of years.  If I had to characterize my background, it would be databases and data access technologies.  In fact, I have worked on just about every Microsoft Data Access technology at one time or another.


I will be utilizing this Blog to share some examples, hints, FAQs, and other minutia about SqlXml and ObjectSpaces.  I may also occasionally ramble on about movies, snow sports, golf, Owen Wilson, 80’s music, and Mathematics – but I will try to stay “on topic” as much as possible.




One other note – I am a Pacific Northwest native and have come to realize that after 33 years that I truly hate the weather here.

    Welcome Inigo, make sure you blog a lot about ObjectSpaces 🙂

    So, can you give us any insight on whether or not ObjectSpaces will ever support other databases, like Oracle and Access? If so, then when — will it be in the first release, a service pack, or a later major version? Or will there at least be a pluggable model so that other vendors can create their own provider to support ObjectSpaces?

    Dude, the Pacific Northwest rocks. I, too, am a native from there and recently moved to Florida, where the weather is quite the opposite. Stop complaining. Its gorgeous there, and the culture and general atmosphere is far superior to that of most any other place I have lived. Oregon or Washington, but are pretty great. Be happy. Yeah, thats off subject, but really all I have to say. Also, what movie is that quote from? My friend has been using it as a screen name for the past week or so and it is driving me nuts that he wont tell me. Please help me out with that one, eh?
