William Durkin, a Yorkshireman now living in Germany and currently work as the Principal SQL Server DBA at ROSEN, a leading Gas & Oil Pipline Inspection Company. I am interested in performance tuning, database refactoring and high availability.
This is a blog about SQL Server, general IT and some other bits and bobs. I hope to use this place as a repository for ideas that I have, or interesting material that I find. I also hope that something that I write about will help someone out, or start an interesting discussion. Learning by doing is the only way to go.
I can be frequently found helping people out on the question/answer section of the largest SQL Server website in the world – SQL Server Central (WilliamD)
