Just in case you haven't heard, I thought I'd take a moment to tell you about the new column I have in the print magazine.

The column is called "Tool Time".  (Yes, just like the well-known and often rerun Tim Allen sitcom.)  The column focuses on cool free tools for SQL Server from Microsoft and from enthusiasts, MVPs, and the like.  (Note that I'm not currently highlighting free tools from ISVs at the moment.  Maybe in the future, but not now.)

I'm also supporting the column with a discussion forum.  I'd enjoy hearing your opinion about the tools I highlight, their strong and weak points, and other tools out there on the internet that are worth considered.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
