You guys know I'm a pretty big fan of the MVA and of course SQL Server (not sure why "of course"... maybe because I've used it forever? In every professional position I've been in? Because it's grown with me from departmental to enterprise? Because I mostly grok it? Whatever, you get the idea...) and we're hopefully moving toward SQL Server 2012 in my day job, so I wanted to capture this for future sharing with the team (and some personal professional development too)
