Frankly, I could hardly think of anything more enjoyable than coding. No, really, if I had all the time in the world I would surely be coding all day long. Maybe with small breaks for some other fun stuff such as taking out the trash, going to dentists, hanging out with my mother in law and filling out tax statements.
Just a technicality: the hyperlink of “Paul's SECRET Project!” is to the Atlanta URL and not the new one.
Paul, good stuff. Looking forward for the announcement on Thursday. I wish the product would support Windows 7 and not just Win2008 – for demo and evaluation purposes.
By the way – Clint, you are almost as good as Laura at throwing niners at the camera. I think that at least one of them reached the proximity of 3 feet from it.

Paul, you are getting closer on pronouncing my name right. Practice makes perfection.
I actually sent Steve Balmer a question for the MVP Summit:
"Now seriously, as much as I love SQL Server: How do I become a Kinect MVP?"
They didn't choose my question for the keynote Q&A, though. Wonder why,
Back to career history, here is my point:
rhm - Sometimes I wish I was an XBOX MVP (they have such MVP - for real!) rather than a SQL Server MVP.
I wonder what they do. Do they have to play on XBOX for a living?
Speaking of career history:
Paul, let me tell you how Laura got to Channel 9.
She actually finished a phd in computer science at MIT. Then Laura applied for a job at the SQL Server team as a peer to peer replication developer. But then someone noticed that she laughs exactly like Gillian Anderson (Scully from the x-files). So they said: "we have to let her make some jokes about windows phone 7 or something on our internet TV channel".
Don't listen to rhm. We all know that MS Atlanta is cool.
Cool at least as.. umm... well, playing D&D which someone born at 83 would probably do as well.

Finally! Some SQL Server news!
PASS is a great event. I will not be able to participate this year although i won a free ticket...
Paul - throw us a bone here, which session were you talking about?
