Finally, managed to finish this weeks selection. I was in Rotterdam for MSSQL 2008 training and did not have time to read anything. I am also moving my house this weekend and as you guess also a time consuming issue but after I move I will have a study room which means more stuff to write other than list/index what I read and liked (My Plans depend, if BT moves my land line quickly otherwise 20 days without internet at home )
