Despite your attempted put downs in the SQL Server forum you don't know me from Adam - Morgan; I've a wealth of experience going back over 22 years in the database arena, I spent the first 5 years of my career developing using DB2, CICS and PL/1; yes - the last 14 years just so happens to be purely on SQL Server; there is around 6 months of Oracle in there; we where one of the first companies to use Oracle Glue in the UK.

I've done so much benchmarking; testing of different configurations and continue'd testing of different styles of doing stuff I could write a book, well, if a) I had time but more importantly b) if I was inclined, which I'm not - making too much money to waste a couple months of my life... no money in books! I tend to throw out the odd thought on my blog for those interested; which frankly is a lot - 500-600 unique visitors a day now which I'm quite pleasantly suprised about -

I'm quiet happy about my advice and own stats from various clients hardware to make sure the people employing me are getting the right advice to get a scalable and reliant SQL Server install.
