Jeremy Huppatz presenting

Yes, it's true. Jeremy Huppatz from EDS is presenting at the AdSSUG this coming Thursday. He's going to be telling us all how to migrate to SQL2005.

As far as I can tell, most people live with what they've got until they have a really good reason to change. Jeremy's going to tell us about a few different scenarios for migration, which should give us all a good template to work from when it comes to taking the plunge.

Plus I'll have a few giveaways. Definitely worth coming along to. Please register, so that we know how many to cater for. It'll also mean you get my nice emails telling you about upcoming meetings.
