PASS 2005: Exhibits, Swag, and SQLTeamers

During the "General Session" today (Wednesday), they threw out SQL Server 2005 t-shirts.  Almost everyone got one.  All of the t-shirts were black and had a verb on the back.  Mine says "Replicate".  I would have preferred "Analyze" or "Query" due to my disdain for replication.  Maybe I'll be able to swindle someone into a trade.

I saw a demo of Red-Gate's SQL Log Rescue.  For that, I got a free t-shirt.  The product looks interesting enough that I'll probably download the free trial.  We are already using SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare.

I also got a free t-shirt from HP, but they had to swipe my badge for that, which means marketing e-mails and phone calls are coming. 

I met Mark Caldwell and Bill Graziano yesterday.  I was on my way to the second part of Kimberly Tripp's "The Next Generation DBA: Critical New SQL Server Features NEED to Learn!" seminar, so we weren't able to chat.  Bill and I talked for a few minutes today.  He said that Nigel Rivett is here somewhere, but I haven't seen him yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to chat with him as well as chat with Mark.
