Excerpt of article text...
When Marc announced that Paul was going to stop writing his database column I was only a little surprised, but very disappointed (in a very selfish sort of way). Writing a column for a periodical is work, but writing three is a great deal of work! So I completely understood why something had to give for Paul. I think he made a wise choice by dialing things back a little bit. Paul's database columns for me have always been interesting, informative and written in such a conversational way that they are one of the things I always look forward to in each issue and I am going to miss them a lot.
I am delighted that he is continuing to write in RSD. Out of curiosity I started going back through past issues and I had to go back about three years before I found an issue without a Paul Lefebvre article in it. So I tip my hat to Paul and say "thanks" for all the hard work you have done and have yet to do!
When Marc asked if I was interested in writing the database column I was both surprised and thrilled. Surprised because there are so many other more qualified people in the community I just assumed one of them had already stepped up to do it. Thrilled because I care a lot about database development!
