I am currently enrolled in an Executive MBA course at Fundesem, a local business school in Alicante (Spain), and I am writing about this when I just celebrated my 54 birthday a couple of weeks ago. I guess I will keep learning as long as my heart keeps...

SolidQ provides advanced SQL Server Training in Benidorm

2012-09-21 11:04:28 by Fernando G. Guerrero

Just looking at the flight schedule of the Alicante airport, someone could think that Alicante is just another UK city.

We could fly daily non-stop to most cities in the UK, and at reasonable prices. Perhaps sometimes it is even easier, and cheaper,...

Why I prefer using only Lync if anybody needs to contact me?

2012-03-03 22:18:10 by Fernando G. Guerrero

For multiple reasons, but the main one is that I do not want to keep status in multiple applications (Skype, Live, Facebook and so on). It is very annoying to receive a call from Skype or my cell phone, while I am having already a call in Lync, because...

Inappropriate user interface: the most useless washbasin I have ever seen in a hotel room

2012-01-31 06:01:00 by Fernando G. Guerrero

Unfortunately, I spend too many nights in hotel rooms every year.

Fortunately, this gives me opportunities to learn about many things. One of them is what services companies, such as hotels, can do to improve (or not) their customers´ life.

It is interesting...

The effects of great team work

2010-07-12 10:10:00 by Fernando G. Guerrero

I know, I know, I might be a little too optimistic after watching Spain winning the Football World Championship last night.

However, I'd like to point out the importance of team work over sparking individual performers.

I don't know much about football,...

Crisis? Recession? Spending wisely to win against the global crisis

2008-09-08 13:27:00 by Fernando G. Guerrero

Do we or don’t we have a recession? Our politicians are debating largely about this topic since a year ago. In fact, it is interesting to know that the official technical determination of the term “recession” is different in Europe and the USA.

In case you didn't see it yet, you should take a look at Google Desktop (

It is still in Beta, but it does for your desktop what the main Google engine does for the web: index all information available and give it to you...

2004-10-04 02:55:00 by Fernando G. Guerrero

Last Thursday, I presented a session in Orlando about hidden Transact-SQL features in SQL Server 2000.

It is surprising to see how, more than 4 years after SQL Server 2000 was released, we still find surprising features in SQL Server Books Online. Features such...

Conference season is over... finally :-)

2003-11-15 21:47:00 by Fernando G. Guerrero

After 28 conferences and seminars this year (I presented at 26 of them), I feel really tired, and eager to go back home and enjoy life with my family for a change. However, I might still need to fly to Latin America during the following two months for...
