As you know, we just declared SQL RTM earlier today.
For those familiar with the changes in this release, my goodness. This has been a huge release. I’ve had a kid along the way, some have had two. Shipping software of this magnitude is probably one of the most gratifying experiences, and I had to go around shake the hand of everyone that I met today and congratulate them. 5 years is a long time.
If you’re one of our regular contributors and haven’t received a thanks from me directly, apologies. Wish I could shake your hand.
Now, on to the cigar.
