Small changes to my blog MichaelJSwart.com

Filed under: Miscelleaneous SQL — Michael J. Swart @ 9:29 pm

So if you’re here at MichaelJSwart.com (as opposed to your RSS reader) you may have noticed a couple small new things.

  1. I’ve updated my portrait that stares back at you on every single page. (Sorry about not being handsomer).
  2. I’ve added a new way to browse old articles … by illustration. It feels good to flex my HTML muscles again.
  3. The other thing is that I’ve reclaimed some whitespace. (But you won’t notice that).

The site is about as simple as I can make it. I had considered overhauling the whole thing, but with a couple small new changes, it feels new again.

And one more thing…

One non-blog related thing: the SQL Server Blocked Process Report Viewer is not in beta any more! I released version 1.0 this month. It now supports SQL Server 2005 to 2011 (so there you go Aaron C!)


  1. You may have gleaned that I like to draw a bit. For the curious, I usually trace a lot but for this drawing, I drew me with slightly exaggerated features making it a bit caricature-ish and by doing so, I think it actually makes it look a bit more like me.

  2. Yay for 2005 support! Except now I only have 2008 installed and all instances I work with have been recently migrated to 2008 🙂

  3. Could you add an easter egg to switch to the old photo? The new one reminds me a little too much of Mr Rogers. Thank you neighbour.
