Pass 2004: Graziano on Profiler in SQL 2005

The two things that stood out to me in this presentation were the Deadlock Graph, and the Performance Monitor stats...

PASS 2004: D-Day. And the answer is...

Apparently the PASS Board and Bill Baker from Microsoft do not read my blog...

PASS 2004: D - 1

The conference begins with a light reception, and the appearance of the Most Valuable Yak.

PASS 2004: Swag

Just got back from breakfast with Graz, Chris, and Denise.  Went over to registration to pick up our stuff.  So far, we've got a large soft-side laptop case/briefcase.  It's thick enough to hold a laptop computer, 3-ring binder, and several other things.  There's also a ticket for a drawing for a digital camera from HP on Friday at the general session (must be present to win).  I believe they are also giving out SQL 2005 Beta 2 but I haven't seen it yet.  Probably at the Microsoft booth in the exhibit hall.

The doorbell (yes, doorbell) on my room just rang and a guy came by to give me bottled water and orange juice.  Nice.

Oh, and the golf shop and another store here are giving 10% off to all conference attendees.  Must be time to do a little souvenir shopping!  And time to hit the pool!
