SQL Server Websites

http://www.sqlservercentral.com/ - This is my favorite SQL website. It’s got so much great information and doesn’t cost a cent. When I first became a DBA I signed up for their daily newsletter and read it every day. It’s still my go to site when I have a SQL problem I can’t figure out.
