Thanksgiving with SQL

It's Thanksgiving in Canada today so most of the team are currently in various stages of Turkey Coma. We'll rollback into the office sometime tomorrow, thankful for the shorter week.

Speaking of spreading the thanks, Red Gate have just published ‘Tribal SQL’, a book by 15 first-time authors answering the question: What makes you passionate about working with SQL Server? As a truly community-driven book, the authors are all generously donating 100% of their royalties to the charity Computers 4 Africa. If you have a moment check it out at http://TribalSQL.com.
