Fifth Anniversary

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Dear blog, it’s been five years. If to be more exact, it’s been five years on May 15th. And I did remember the anniversary. But I didn’t know what I had to say. I wanted to tell you something meaningful. Make it special. And I didn’t know what I had to say or do that would be anything like that.   I thought to myself I’d do something with the number five in it. Found nothing that felt like it could be good enough. So I thought of something different. My favorite song from David Bowie is Thursday’s Child. And...

Four More Years! (And then some more please)

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Me and the blog, we're celebrating 4 years together. It's been quite a hectic year for me personally, but the blog was there all along. It was being it's old supportive, giving and stable self all along. And I love it for it. Still, I thought this would make for a good chance for us to get to know you! I remember seeing (and loving) this post from Adam Machanic and thinking - he hit the nail straight on the head. Whether you're new here, just popped by for a visit or have been a long time reader, I'd love...

Donald Farmer on SQL Server 2008 R2, SharePoint and PowerPivot

Monday, June 14, 2010

If you're following this blog, then you know that Sunday, May 30th 2010, I went to the SQL & BI Data Platform convention held in Tel Aviv. Specifically, I went to Mr. Donald Farmer's seminar on Data Integration in Large Organizations. I did live blogging from most of the event, though actually, I didn't manage to blog about the last part of it, because I was preparing for something that was pretty big for me.... I'll start over. When I first heard Mr. Farmer was coming to lecture in Israel, I was like "What? Really? Like, Donald Farmer? Like THE...

It’s a love thing…

It's been three years that me and the blog have been together (truthfully, the date was on the 15th, and I didn't forget honey, I was just really busy with work, so you understand now don't you?... Ok, I'll get you flowers :)) I have to admit that looking back at older posts is sorta weird, cause I think my own voice in my writing has changed since then. But then again, I guess you never stop changing your own voice in your writing, just as you never stop changing yourself.I also really learned to appreciate the blog more, as...

2 Years of Blogging

Thursday, June 4, 2009

My blog is 2 years old. Yeah, I know! He's already started walking and talking a bit. It's so strange to see him grow...Still, I admit that coming to write this post, I couldn't help but think to myself that this time around I don't want to talk about my blog, even though it is his birthday (please forgive me blog). Instead, I'd like to talk about the man who made me start all of this (and a lot of other things as well) - my big brother, Adlai Maschiach.My brother is 7 years my eldest. Which I guess...

We’ve only just begun

Saturday, May 31, 2008

It's been a year now that me and my blog have been together. We gave it our first go on May 15th, 2007. And I have to admit it's been a relationship that had its ups and downs. At first, I wasn't completely sure how to write - what tone to use, how to approach a subject. But I guess blogging grows on you, and you grow with it, and I feel more confident now when I open a blank page and start to write. Also, at times, writing can feel like a chore. Because you're busy, and you...

How to remember stuff…

Saturday, July 14, 2007

Well I admit I started writing this blog so I could be in touch with a larger community, but truth be told, I’m finding this blog has become a means for me to write stuff down somewhere so as not to forget them… J Let’s face it, even at the age of 27 I have a hard time remembering everything. So what can I do?  Notebooks with lists always seem to magically disappear or simply not be there just when you need them. Web pages, on the other hand, are always accessible – any place any time – and never...
