Wow – that was tough but *very* fulfilling. As you may know, Kimberly and I are each writing chapters for Kalen's next book – SQL Server 2008 Internals. Well, I *just* finished the DBCC CHECKDB chapter – it's 26000 words and 69 pages, describing all the algorithms in-depth and all the corruption errors that can be reported in SQL Server 2008. It was really fun to write but I'm glad all that stuff's down on paper now – I can make room in my head for a bunch of other stuff
I can't wait to see it in print next Spring!
(Ok – with 5 blog posts today, I think I broke my record. Time to retire for the night before I'm tempted to break it even more…)
