This Day In History

Happy Birthday Dave

A birthday cakeSo it’s mine and my brother’s birthday today and although he’s not a SQL Server professional, he’s still got an online presence.┬áDave’s hobby (and career I guess) have to do with images and computers and pictures made amazing and nifty by computers.

He posts all of his stuff (or almost all of it) on flickr. And if you like nerdy/nifty things check out his list of favorites.

If you look at his stuff, and you have a flickr account, I strongly recommend commenting on a picture of his. I think a thoughtful comment on a picture that you like would be the best present.

And speaking of “present” (see what I just did there?) If you want to see him present, here he is giving a 5 minute lightning talk on the visual sphere. It’s very much like my own presentations, although his talks are generally more interesting than mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KppatojPM_0

My Favorite Blog Posts

Me, I’m following his lead and I created a new page that lists my favorites and your favorites. I want to make it easy for new readers or lurkers to get a sense of what my blog is about by putting my best foot forward.


  1. Thanks Mike. Happy birthday too you too.

  3. Hey Michael,

    I’m a bit late to wish you a happy b-day, but I’ll still go on and do it. So: congrats! Looks like you were born one day before me btw (though the year might be different ;-)).

    Best regards,
