I would like to point out that no developers or managers were harmed during the composition of this blog post.

If you fancy starting your own blog Simon Sabin (Blog|Twitter) has written an entry on the tools he uses when blogging:

Thanks to Simon I now know about the Windows 7 Snipping tool (which I used to take the tweet from TweetDeck above).

Once you have been blogging for a while, you might fancy trying your hand at presenting, Microsoft’s Andrew Fryer (Blog|Twitter) has written a blog entry on how Windows 7 can help make things easier:

Aaron Bertrand (Blog|Twitter) has written a great blog entry on his findings of Red Gate’s new Storage Compress 5.0 product:

On SQLServerCentral.com you can find an interview with this years winner of Red Gate’s Exceptional DBA winner Tracy Hamlin (Twitter):
