Last but not least – “wishes to your Endless SQL technology Journey” through this blog.
I hope this box contains “SQL Authority” PrintedT-shirt forFifth Annivesary celebration.
For all blog readers have a memorable gift of this T-shirt. Its right.
What ever it is, it has definitely “AIR” in it .. Prove me that’s wrong :D :) ..
Anyway, some of your articles helped me a lot on day to day basis and I just want to say “Thank you” and ” Congratulations “. Keep up the good work.
Hi Dave many congratulations…
To my wild guessing it contain a CPU & a Monitor..
Combo set of 5 Joes 2 Pros Book – 1 for me and 1 for a Friend. Please enter me into the extended contest. I am a US entry.
I believe that in these boxes are books. Which books exactly – hard to say – probably the ones you’re the author is.
Now, for the other contest – I have 149 friends on Facebook. Most of them programmers with interest in SQL Server. So, I’d guess that at least 30 of my friends like your page.
Another guess – these boxes contain some of your stuff because you’re moving to a new place!
I also like MJ guess :)
