The first act

"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />Ok…
as with anything, the initial effort is always the hardest – so I am just going to
jump right in and start hacking.

name is
Andrew Conrad
, I am a Software Design Engineer with the Sql Server group at Microsoft. For
the past 4 years I have been working on the SqlXml product.

I will
be utilizing this Blog to share some examples, hints, FAQs, and other minutia about
SqlXml. I may also occasionally ramble
a bit about movies, snow sports, Owen
, 80’s music, and Mathematics – but I will try and stay on topic as much
as possible.

other note – I am a Pacific Northwest Native and I come to realize that after 32 years
that I truly hate the weather here.
