Steampunk SQLBits tshirt follow up

Firstly I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who reads this blog. I was totally overwhelmed by the number of people who got in touch, from every part of the world.

I am really sorry but I simply could not buy everyone a tshirt. There were simply too many requests and I do feel bad about it. The design is below and if you fancy ordering and paying for your own, please visit and you can choose your own tshirt.

The link is below:
Purchase my design on!

and here is the picture:

I chose pink for women and olive for gentlemen. If I didn’t email you back to offer you a tshirt, I have missed your mail in amongst the traffic and I am sorry about that.
Enjoy! If you do order one, please send me a photo of yourself in it and I will post it up. I’d love to see it!

Interested in helping SQLBits to craft the first ever SQLBits Wikipedia page?

Exciting DitBits news from the SQLBits camp today. 

 We will be hosting a ‘Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon’ which will focus on gathering budding community authors, editors and reviewers together to create the first ever Wikipedia SQLBits page!

I’m looking for photos for the SQLBits photo album, which we will be posting online. Please send your photos, or links to photos, to me at and I promise not to laugh at your old photos if you don’t laugh at mine!

 We will see you in the Community Coffee Corner at 5.30 – 6.30 on Friday 18th July!



Got questions over PASS Summit Selection? I’m happy to try and help.

I hold the PASS Board seat for Europe, so I would like to give Europeans in particular the chance to ask questions in their own time zone. I’m also happy to answer other people who may be awake very early or very late! The official post is here:


Therefore I would like to offer ‘surgery hours’:

 I am on Twitter now until midnight British Summer Time.

I will on Twitter tomorrow lunchtime from 12 – 2 British Summer Time in case anyone has any questions. This should give people time to read and digest the information.

My details:

 Twitter: @JenStirrup

I will also search for the hashtag ‪#‎SQLPass at the same time.


If you are not on Twitter, my email is and I will be pleased to help you if I can. I may have to direct your question elsewhere if I cannot answer it myself, but I will be pleased to try to help.


Over to you!
