[Presenting] PASS Summit 2014 - Bummed and Congrats!

Got back from vacation on Tuesday.  Check twitter sometime that morning - and lo and behold, the PASS Summit 2014 sessions are picked!  Check email - nothing.  Check the schedule - well, I guess "not picked"  doesn't deserve an email.  Thanks.  Check on twitter (because honestly, a "why" would be nice) - no, I should have gotten something.  Long story short - 4 hours later, I get the email.  I already knew from looking at the schedule that I wasn't picked - which was a kick in the pants, having presented it 5 times at this point.

However, a silver lining - it appears I was rejected because someone else was presenting on something similar.  Indeed!  So a hearty congrats to Colleen Morrow!  While I personally think EN curb-stomps SQL Audit, I'm glad to see the subject of checking for code changes in the environment will be presented at PASS.  Colleen's already shown (via her chapter in Tribal SQL) that she knows quite a bit about all the options, and writes passionately on the subject, so I have no doubt it'll be a great session.  Wish I could see it.  : )
