BEGIN TRY

Hopefully, I won't need a CATCH Block. 

 In case that opening sentence didn't give you a hint, I am a bit of a tech geek.  Bill Graziano talked me into joining this merry band while at the PASS summit last week.  While I enjoy answering questions on newsgroups, this will give me a way to initiate conversations.  I looked around and decided SQLTeam would be a good place to stand and pontificate.

And now for some real SQL content. Sort of. 

Based on a lot of presentations by Microsoft on proposed features and bug fixes, I have to conclude that Connect really matters.  Connect is Microsoft's feedback center.  While the list of complaints about Connect is quite long, it has one overwhelming benefit.  The Microsoft SQL Development team actually pays attention to it.  Not only that, but Microsoft is allocating resources based on feedback gathered from Connect.  So get over the fact Connect seems modeled after a particularly clumsy session of "Messenger" at a Jr. High School party and use it.  Post bugs.  Post Suggestions.  Vote early and often.  You want to influence the product and you don't happen to have Ted Kummert's digits on the speed dial.  Here is your chance.
