My colleague Grace Francisco just posted a humorous but insightful overview of the newest Visual Studio Team System family member, code named "DataDude." The official product name is Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals, but Grace explains why we went with "DataDude" as the code name. So surf on over to Grace's blog to sea more and be sure to wave hello to Grace for me. </puns, I promise>
But while I'm on the subject of surfing, Step into Liquid is one of my favorite movies and I highly recommend it even if you're not into surfing. Heck, I've only surfed one day in my life - I'm actually into boogie boarding right now - but this movie is inspirational and amazing in so many ways that you don't need a surfing background to appreciate. As the summer slips away from those of us in the northern hemisphere this is a nice way to reconnect with the sunshine.
