SQL Server 2008 Live Meeting Put-off-a-thon

We pushed back the SQL LIve Meeting (if you were registered, you hopefully got a notice along those lines) AGAIN, partially because I didn't have my act together, and partially because we didn't want to waste your time with a meeting if we didn't have enough to say. The SQL certifications are many months off, so we've rescheduled for January. I'm glad we moved the meeting but sorry for messing with your calendar.

For those of you who would like a glimmer of what is in the works for SQL 2008 certification, check Gerry's recent post on the topic.

In related news about me screwing something up, someone gave the feedback that the Windows Server 2008 Live Meeting on December 5 should have been broken out separately for upgraders and new people. I agree 100% and that was the original plan, but then we tried to cram too much in.

In related news about me screwing something up, I accidentally ate someone else's Healthy Choice frozen lunch entree ("Sesame Chicken") out of the 18N 3rd floor kitchen freezer, instead of my Healthy Choice frozen lunch entree ("Roasted Turkey").

I'm exhausted by this effort to be transparent and take responsibility for my mistakes,* so I'll wrap it up.

Your friend,

    Does this mean that you were seeking to deliver a ready-made certification and training overview, or are you still seeking feedback (cause I’d have some) to improve on training and certification for SQL Server?

    Stan, if you have cert suggestions, point them to Gerry; courseware suggestions should go the normal route (if you dont know what that is, send me an e-mail and I’ll send you to someone who does!)

    why are beta exams restricted in India and China?

  4. as says:


    MS will probably come up with all sorts of flowery reasons, but my suspicion is: braindumps.

    Dear China,

    Please don’t braindump. Thanks!

    P.S. Cool wall!

    Problem solved. I’m a problem solver.

    "P.S. Cool wall!"

    I’ve been telling people this all morning. You are funny.

    LOL!  That’s one of the funniest this I’ve heard for a while.
