“Show Me” 🙂
You think that’s air you’re breathing now?
HOW COME YOU AND DAVID KEEP SLAPPING ME AROUND?
I’m going to get the hang of this one of these days, and when I do….heh. Back to my chopsticks.
At the LEAST you are the Master of your Domain 😛
UPS guy? For what that plaque cost you, it should have been delivered by an armored car. Congratulations.
Congratulations! Don’t drop ’em!
Interesting relic of the Ozarian dynasty. Is it platinum, at least?
The card says it’s made out of ground-up bones from recycled Access “database administrators” but I’m not sure if I believe that.
Now you can tell them: “I am the Master…you will listen to me, and you will obey *me*… YOU WILL OBEY ME”

Don’t say it too loud for Chuck Norris might hear you say Master and get upset Chuck Norris = Master of Everything.
Brent Ozar is the sequel to Check Norris.
While Chuck is running around the world to scratch his own back, Brent has already written 42 servers to do it for him.
Now you must learn the ways of the Shaolin order: “When you can snatch the pebble from my hand grasshopper…”
