I'm now back from a wonderful trip to Redmond! I am grateful to Jim for being a great host. I met lots of people in Building 35 and learnt loads about TSQL. All very interesting. Now we have lots of work to be getting on with.
My fortune cookie at P.F. Changs read "You are wise to be deeply attached to your family and home". Maybe they know something about Microsoft that I don't but either way it's nice to be back :-)
