It’s now 2008. Go figure. 2007 seems to have been busy for me. I finished my second book which is now available from the publisher, Amazon.com and many local book stores. I’m really enjoying doing remote database administration from home and in July I took a team manager position which is keeping me quite busy.

For the past few weeks I’ve been busy with an on-site visit to one of my favorite clients in Maryland, a database health-check for another client (which makes for a quite demanding week) and some much needed vacation. The highlight of the past few weeks (other than having some great time off with my family and friends) was being presented an Oracle ACE award.

I have quite a backlog of topics to write about and will be working on getting a few articles up here each week as soon as I can find the time. For now I’m off to San Diego, CA for a conference, as soon as it stops snowing long enough to get a flight out of New Hampshire.

Happy new year everyone!
