This is another awesome example of how much juicy stuff we're getting lately through the TechNet Guru competition. This has been entered into this month's competition and I wish you good luck Saeid!


Ninja Award Most Popular Article Award  
Collaboration is the name of the game!


The article to be updated by the most people this week is SQL Server User Groups, by the legendary .

The Microsoft User Groups Portal is a new initiative by TechNet wiki to collect a list of all known and active technology user groups. If you are a member of any groups that are not listed, please add the details to the lists.

The SQL Server page has just exploded with new groups, and we are very excited to see this grow.

This week's revisers were JennyRichardson, Ed Leighton-Dick (I-380 PASS), Neil S Hambly, Rafael Salas, Naomi N, Dan Griggs, Stuart R. Ainsworth, Tamera Clark, XAML guy, Mark Freeman, Joseph Fleming, CesarBlumm, C.Bell, Steph Locke, Kendal Van *** & John.Morehouse


I am very sorry that this week's "Saturday Top Contributors blog" is TWO days late, because it has been undergoing some drastic changes.

The main advance is that everything I get from the crawl is now being stored in a database. It is a very long crawl over tens of thousands of pages, and if it crashes or hangs at any point, I can now pick up wherever it stopped.

I can also now do longer term analysis and trends. Watch this space for future improvements and new awards.


Best regards,
Pete Laker
