On Technical Writing ...

In my SSIS blog i criticised the quality of some of the documentation especially around creating custom tasks, Douglas from the MS SSIS technical writing team contacted me and asked that i post about ways in which the community can help improve any areas which people find fustrating. Douglas wrote...

"Please use the Send Feedback link that's available on every page of Books Online to let us know if you find an error, or insufficient information to do your job. And, if you have an opportunity, encourage your readers to do so also. While we might never see a blog posting that mentions a problem with the documentation, your feedback goes immediately to the responsible writer in the form of a bug that can't be ignored."

In the past i have never bothered to click that link, from now on every time i see an error i will be clicking away knowing that there is a team of people who care passionately about the quality and accuracy of the documentation.

Well SQL Server 2005 finally RTM'ed yay !!!!

Do recent announcements that Exchange will only be offered in 64bit versions mean that the same future is likely for SQL Server in the future ? I think it is only a matter of time, as always the reaction of customers will be key.

Me old mate smudge finally bit the dust, visit the link below to learn more.

And for the gadget freaks reading, my new laptop is the ferrari 4005 one word Fantastic.

There is a very good reason for this, watch this space for more details very soon.
