[21:47:11] <Brian-AKA-Zuul> what up

[21:47:14] <halr9000> Brian-AKA-Zuul we were talking about you

[21:47:14] <Brian-AKA-Zuul> you were?

[21:47:34] <halr9000> haha we were totally not mocking you that bad

[21:51:58] <Josh_Atwell> Mike looks at sql tables and sees blondes, brunettes, redheads 🙂

[22:07:20] <StartAutomating> I like it.  You should go for a "Sam Spade" themed look

[22:07:42] <halr9000> The only look that I can do is "Blue Steel"

[22:16:33] <ToENuFF> ## Correction to my question - Can you move the master, model, msdb mdf and ldf to specific drives and directories with your tool?

[22:12:29] <StartAutomating> ## what sort of styles of automation did you have do to (screen scrape / command line drive / data files/  existing scripts?)

[22:12:48] <cmill19> ##how is hard/easy is it to add/remove tasks to SQLSPADE

[22:15:37] <StartAutomating> ## Is it XML ?  Does it store data securely?

hr> can you kick off remote installs?

[22:17:36] <cmill19> #Have your tried server core

[22:17:37] <StartAutomating> ## Can you make that order customizable ?  How much of the tech is specific to SQL server and how much is general automation?

hr> HTML log? Why?

[22:21:49] <cmill19> ##how does the html log work on server core
