I figured I’d have my inaugural post on my new professional development blog pimping out my SQL Cruise contest entry. That’s right: the winner will gain passage for two aboard a Carnival cruise out of Miami, and a slot in the training from Tim Ford (Blog | @SQLAgentMan) and Brent Ozar (Blog | @BrentO). Needless to say, this is very exciting, and one lucky DBA is going to have many thanks for the contest’s sponsor, SQL Sentry.

I also want to mention that I truly appreciate all the support and generous comments that I’ve been receiving about the video. It really means a lot to me, folks, it really does.

And without further ado: the video!
