My boss says he remembers getting a little 5 or 6 page monthly periodical or report with SQL and Windows (maybe NT) tips and information or short, specific tutorials a few years ago.

Does anyone know of a free monthly periodical like that?  It had no advertisements and was only a few pages.  Maybe 5 to 8 pages in length.  I tried searching and get nothing.  Thanks if anyone knows of or remembers getting the little periodical.  We are looking for something on SQL, Windows Server 2008 and maybe CITRIX XenServer.  

I know there are better training resources, but you got to keep the boss happy.  ;-)  Thanks.

Was it a PDF document received by e-mail?
Or in the mail (postal service)?

It was a hard paper copy sent by the postal service.  It was almost like a flyer or a little mini magazine.  We couldn't remember who published it.  It always contained some short article or tutorial or two.

Do you remember the last year it was received?
Any year, in which you know it was published, such as 2004, 2005, etc.

(I don't mean the first date of publication, just a year in which copies were published)

I see you mention a few years ago.

I admit, the chances of this being the one you are looking for, is less than 1%.

Yeah, I'm probably not as concerned with finding the *exact one*, but something like that that is informative and helpful, especially for a couple of people who are learning or want to improve their skills in SQL.  If there is something similar for Windows Server 2008 R2 that would really be nice.

The SolidQ Journal looks pretty good.  I'll take a look at it and forward it to my boss.

The Database Journal looks like another good one.  I may even find a link to something similar for Windows Server on one of the pages.?

I quote............

"It's a top-notch monthly mag and it's chock full of great stuff.
Sometimes I take jabs at it, but I do look forward to getting mine each month, and have now for over ten years."

from:
SQL Server 2008 R2 info
http://www.texastoo.com/post/2009/05/14/SQL-Server-2008-R2-info.aspx

And they refer to this magazine which has been published for over 10 years.
SQL Server Magazine.

Ha!  My boss just asked me to take a look at SQL Server Magazine as well as Windows IT Pro Magazine and let him know if I liked them.  ;-)

He set himself up for this:

"What a great idea you (meaning him) had to subscribe to SQL Server Magazine.
It should provide excellent information for all of us to increase our productivity."

(lay it on thick....ha ha)
