Introductions?

I guess I should start off with some form of introduction….

My name’s Gordon Rayburn.   I’m a senior level database administrator using Microsoft SQL Server technologies.  It’s nice to be able to say technologies these days, instead of “Yeah, I’m the guy who runs the database servers”.  I do have a tendancy to introduce myself or position as a High-Tech Janitor though.  It usually gets a giggle out of other folks like myself.  I’ve been in the I.T. business for eleven years now, primarily as a DBA.  I am currently employed by a leading student lending institution working with some very cool technolgies and hardware.

When I’m not working I’m usually riding a motorcycle.  Either in the canyons of Southern California or at one of the racetracks in the area.  I have a couple of sportbikes and a supermotard that gets ridden almost daily.

Now that the formalities are out of the way…let’s get down to business.  This is mainly going to be a technical blog; as I need some place to park my code that I would like other people to be able to use/review/comment.  I intend on using this blog to get some things out there that I don’t think some people realize we (as DBA’s) are doing with technology.

First up is going to be some PowerShell stuff with a smattering of SMO that I’ve been working on the last few months.  There will also be some T-SQL stuff relating to tracing, backups, fragmentation and other administrative things that every good DBA should know or at least learn about.

MCP end of file.
