Many things has happened…

Apart from arranging the first SQL Saturday in Sweden that took place in Gothenburg on September 5., I am very proud to have been selected speaker at the first SQL Saturday in Serbia. Sql Saturday #475. If you happen to have a Saturday (November 28.) to spare, please join me and many others for a wonderful event. How can I say it’ll be a wonderful event? Well, it’s an event about SQL Server. Need I say more? 🙂

I’ve learned a lot from arranging an SQL Saturday, and I will take the lessons learned and use them next year. Yes, there will also be an SQL Saturday Gothenburg in 2016 as well!

I was again among the lucky few who was selected as speaker at the Nordic Rally. The Rally takes place near Arlanda airfield, Stockholm the 5-6 November. My talk is about the transaction log. Please come and check it out… There are of course more than 20 other interesting subjects and speakers making this a worthwhile investment.

Is SQL Server 2000 gone for good?

Leave a comment

According to Microsoft, the extended support for SQL Server 2000 is completely gone as of April 9. 2013.

As you can see in the table (follow the link below) there is NO date after 2013-04-09. That means that the support is officially over. There will probably be no more updates, security fixes or patches anymore – even if you would need it!

But the most important piece of information, in my opinion, is that the general support ended 8. april 2008. That fact leads me to presume that most consultants does not have a real reason to preserve the SQL Server 2000 specific knowledge cached in their brains. There are actually not that many consultants who master the 2000 anymore… 

Change it. Now. To something closer to 2012.
