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.
