I decided to finally join the http://blogs.msdn.com community. However, I will contine to mainly blog at http://sqljunkies.com/weblog/mrys and only syndicate the work-related entries on SQL Server, XML Standardization, XQuery, and other XML Technologies here. Until I can do this automatically (I have bugged Scott many times already to add the feature to automatically republish an RSS feed), I will post a short synopsis with a link here and request people to comment on the sqljunkies site.
Over the next few posts, I am going to send topically aggregated summaries of already published article.
Feel free to contact me if you want me to write about something related to the topics above.
