Server Developer Center: Internal SQL Server Diagnostics Tools, Part 1: PSSDiag
SQL Server Developer Center: Internal SQL Server Diagnostics Tools, Part 1: PSSDiag: "Ken Henderson explains how to use PSSDiag, a diagnostics collection tool for SQL Server. PSSDiag is one of several Microsoft Product Support Services tools recently released to the Web that are now available for personal use. "

The first in a series of articles, this discusses PSSDiag, which if you ever call MS for support with SQL Server it is one of the first things they will ask you to run. So a very useful tool to be familiar with it, and useful to keep regular benchmarks with too. Spotted over at Michael Rys' blog.

SharePoint User Manager (Version: X1.0)

SharePoint User Manager (Version: X1.0)
Not sure about other people, but I find it quite time consuming when trying to manage users inside of Windows SharePoint Services sites, especially when the sites in the hierarchy have their security inheritance broken. A number of customers end up breaking security inheritance at every opportunity and then hit this problem.

So, I am in the process of writing a SharePoint User Manager Windows Application in order to help out in this area!

Below is a screenshot of the utility to-date (Note: This is version X1.0 and as such has restricted functionality)
