  • If you’re going out for BBQ, go to Black’s in Lockhart. The line at Franklin’s isn’t worth it 😉

  • also try Kreuz Market in Lockhart. I still want to try Franklin’s but haven’t made it yet.

  • Black’s is a bit far from Round Rock. Kreuz Market is better anyhow. (Gauntlet thrown)

    No Black’s isn’t bad, great home style sides, terrible sausage, but the smoked chops are delicious.

    None of my links to the Dell Days webinars seem to work…so I missed out on all the fun..oh well..back to work.

    I wish I could join this remotely, but I am unable to – darn!! I really want to learn how to prove out what we are running on our hardware is too much – but just don’t know how to. Do you plan to make these recordings available next week? Please? Pretty please? 🙂 Thanks for all you do!


  • I just hope I can cover all of this in a single comment.

    Of course you can have barbecue for breakfast. Has no one told you about Rudy’s?

    I work at a company katty-corner from Dell across I-35 and the toll road. There’s plenty of good stuff, of every sort, to be had in this area.

    Lastly, while I see everyone wearing cowboy hats, I see nary a boot among you. This is a violation of The Texas Cowboy Hat Rule: You can’t wear the hat without wearing the boots.

    I’m sure I forgot something. I’m equally sure I’ll remember later.

  • I’m looking forward to the videos: I couldn’t see Mondays because of the problems you were having, and I had to leave work early Thursday to attend a SQL Saturday training in El Paso. I really wanted to see the server break!

  • I got the On-Demand link for the webcasts, though the 26th is missing. Will it be delivered later or is the recording broken?
    I was looking forward to actually hear about the advanced shared storage features, as I missed the call. :-/

    • Dennis – your best bet is to contact the folks who sent you the link (Dell). I’m not sure how the recordings went, but I bet somebody attached to that email can answer it. Let us know!
