      "Welcome to the show" with emphasis Smiley

      So the show shows itself being a show now, eh Ryan?
      Wow! What a blow to my show theorem Wink

      Darn.. I was going for a "Hey homey, what's with the glum face? You glum or somethin, eh glummy?"-kind of joke above... Hopefully my Zoidberg-image next to it will compensate Smiley

    • hansol

      And one last thing: More SQL Azure please!

    • gbrayut

      Notepad++ Zoom in and Zoom out: Ctrl-(Keypad-/Keypad+) or Ctrl + mouse wheel

      Note it requires a keypad or a mouse, so not sure how you do it on a laptop. Maybe just use Windows 7 Zoom with Winkey and +?

      @hansol:

      I have a habit of not knowing what I am going to say until I say it.  Hence, the emphasis on whatever words I feel like at the time.  Nothing to read between the lines there...

      Cool Smiley - Keepin it real!

      Any chance of more sql azure shows? If not, can you answer how sql azure works with SELECT and the two replication servers, are they used for load-balancing read requests like SELECT at all?

      The reason for my asking is that this will greatly impact whether I must shard my DB or not since it's mostly SELECT-heavy and often with historical data not ever going to change, like how many orders where there last month by this or that customer or product blah-blah...

      @hansol: SQL Azure will be the focus of later shows.  However, it won't be the focus on the next one.  We can bring back David and ask him your questions after PDC.

      @dunnry: Thanks, I'm looking forward to it already...

      Mmmmm... I can't wait Smiley
