** Also note that today is also the last day for the MCTS Database Developer SQL 2008 exams. Unfortunately as much as I would like to I won’t be able to take this exam. Would encourage everyone to take it though, you might be surprised you actually know more than you think you do (like my MCTS BI SQL 2008 exam :D)
