I’m here at SQLPass conference in Texas, the preconference doesn’t look like it will be “rained out” as my was last year. I came in yesterday in the early evening. There was a little wind on the flight in but nothing major; the plane even arrived on schedule. I look forward to seeing everyone there. If you won’t be at the preconference, I’ll be doing a book signing on Wednesday at noon and an XQuery tutorial talk on Thursday morning, stop by and say hi.


Although the weather is pretty good in Dallas (or at least out by the airport) watching the weather channel makes it obvious that everyone wasn’t as lucky WRT the storm. My best wishes go out to all the folks affected by the storm(s).
