Winner Winner Chicken Dinner…not quite.

February 16th, 2010

While it’s all in good fun, very cool I made it into the semi-finals in Thomas LaRock’s “Name That Caption” contest. At this point, the public will vote for the top three and from there, Thomas is going to choose the one he likes best. Winner gets a free book (one I would most likely pay for anyway, but don’t tell Thomas), but more importantly, the winner gets bragging rights amongst all my noisy Twitter friends. Oh yeah, that’s worth it all!

    – The original post
    – My entries
    – The voting page

So if you haven’t already, head on over to the third link there and throw your vote into the mix. Sure, I’d prefer to have you vote for me, but the other four are clever enough, I certainly wouldn’t blame you for voting for ANY of the five. It’s all for fun, so best of luck to all.

Have a Grateful day…Troy

DBA Survivor Name That Caption Contest

February 2nd, 2010

Thomas LaRock from started a “Name That Caption” contest for a picture he will be using on his site soon, and wanted a little help from his SQL buddies for an appropriate caption. Well, I consider myself a bit creative, but gotta remember all the crazies that follow Thomas as do I, and I have to get my entry in before it’s too late. Very entertaining answers so far from Brent Ozar, Jorge Segarra, and Jonathon Gardner and I’m sure many more are on the way. Visit’s post comments for links to all the responses so far.

The actual picture:

My two cents…

  • “Somewhere out there someone shrunk a database and killed a kitten because of it.”
  • “Ok, who put the datacenter up here on the 35th floor??”
  • “Sheesh, from way up here those full-text indexes look like ants!”
  • “Now, I know the executive washroom’s somewhere around here.”

I’m going to follow Brent’s lead and close this post to comments as I don’t want any of my three readers to leave their entries here. Once again, here’s the link to getting the rules.

Best of luck to all and never forget to have a Grateful day…Troy
