I've barely cracked the exciting SQL 2008 features and already I'm getting excited for Kilimanjaro. I haven't even started to learn the ins and outs of Windows 2008 and I'm looking at Windows 7 and drooling.
Then there's the world of BI that I want to get into... yikes!
I'm really looking forward to getting away from the office to attend TechEd this year. I REALLY need to get out of the constant interruptions so that I can focus on learning again. It's sort of like a very geeky "me time" trip ;)
I'm a bit bummed out that Kimbery and Paul won't be presenting this year as I've always really enjoyed their sessions and break-outs. That reminds me... I just stumbled upon the blog of Mr. Dan Jones tonight which is one I'll have to start following. I attended a few of his sessions two years ago and I believe he's also the one who led a Katmai focus group I attended; that was a blast and it's really cool to see our feedback materialized in the form of SQL 2008 SSMS!
Ok... enough work for tonight; Trish's texts indicate she's missing me so I had better call in a quick hello.
