All the best, Brenton and Hayley!
If you happen to watch the Channel 9 News on a weeknight in Adelaide, then you’re probably familiar with their weatherman, Brenton Ragless. You might also recognise his dulcet tones from one of his radio and TV advertising voiceovers, CFS spokesperson, radio presenter on LIFE-FM, or maybe even the funny guy on the PA at the Blackwood Christmas Pageant.
I’ve known Brenton over the years through cake decorating (no, not us - our Mums) and Church circles, and now that he’s a big time TV personality, it’s quite nice for my kids to say “Daddy, isn’t that the man you know?”. I’m not famous, but at least I know someone who is :-)
Well the great news is Brenton and his fiance Hayley are getting married tomorrow, and I thought it would be nice to publicly wish them well.
I’m not sure if I’ll be able make it to the ceremony, but I hope everything goes well (even if the weather looks like it might be a little inclement – you’d think Brenton would be able to fix that!)
SQL Server 2008 RTM
It looks like SQL Server 2008 is now done. Various bits are starting to appear on Microsoft Downloads, including Sync Framework v1 and Sync Services for ADO.NET v2.
The sync files are downloadable separately as part of the Feature Pack.
There’s also 2008 Books Online, and some 180-day trials of SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition – one for IT Pros and one for Developers.
Hopefully the Express versions will appear shortly. Greg says Visual Studio 2008 SP1 will come out on August 11th.
Monday saw Ben Laan join our team. The “Dream Team” is now complete and it’s all systems go.
