The Fervent Coder

Those that know me know I am very passionate about my craft.  I have recently been thinking of a great domain name that really addresses how I feel.  There are two things I wanted to address with my domain name. The first is that as a developer we are always seeking perfection and never finding it.  That is a coding utopia. A utopia is defined by Wikipedia as:

An unrealistic ideal that is impossible to achieve.

That is really how I feel about programming.  We can do it our whole lives and never achieve perfection.  But our obsession is to always strive to get there.  We do so in a fervent or ardent way.  That is the second idea I wanted to address.  We also fervently share our ideals with others.  The Free Online dictionary defines fervent as

characterized by intense emotion; Having or showing great emotion or zeal; ardent

Also, fervent explains the passion I have for development as well. That is why I am pleased to announce that the new domain for this blog is http://ferventcoder.com!  I am still hosted by GWB so you can still access the content by going to http://www.geekswithblogs.net/robz if you would like. Or you can use the new address.  All of the links work from either URL.

Those of you subscribed to my feed do not need to do anything new as you have been automatically updated.  However you may notice about 25 postings being counted as new or updated. Otherwise you may not notice anything different although I have renamed my blog to Fervent Coder (instead of The RobLog).

Welcome!  How many times can I say fervent in this post? ;D

In regards to your blog about "Possible Performance Counter Corruption Or Performance Counters are Just Disabled | SQL Server 2008 Installation Errors".....it couldn't have been more timely. Thanks for the good work and I look forward to reading more of your worthy blog.
