    I have been thinking about doing a talk on SQL Server & .NET CLR integration .. some of the things I have found useful in my day job such as replacing the extended stored procs with more security aware versions, adding UDF regex support, and a few other things. The last presentations I have done (outside of work) to a techy audience were probably university in 2004, but I am pretty comfortable doing demos

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
