Quite a few of my SQL cohorts are milling around NOLA this week learning all sorts of things. Some of them might even be work related. And what can I say, I’m jealous. I’ve heard rumors that there is a nightly trololo choir on Bourbon Street similar to the SpectroMagic parade at Walt Disney World, complete with fiber optic lights and kilts. I suppose we’ll have to convene a trololo committee with Brent Ozar (@BrentO) leading it in order to organize that for November’s PASS conference.

In related news, I’m glad to hear that Tom LaRock (@SQLRockstar) has come out of the closet and told us where he will be hanging up his chaps. I’m happy to report that Tom has landed with Confio, makers of Ignite. He is an awesome addition to any company, but I do hope they have enough bacon on hand to keep him satisfied.
