    Hi,

    Recently I received a mail regarding "Exclusive Holiday Offer for Selected SQL Server Professional". I'm interested to go for it, but, I need a few details about this,

    1) Will it be useful for database developers?
    2) I'm living in India/Chennai, if I subscribe through internet, can I get it regularly?
    3) Is it possible for me to pay through any other channel apart from the URL you have provided, like paying via some bank here in India/Chennai?

    Kindly give me your suggestions, thank you.

    Regards,
    Deva

    I think it is best to post the content of email you've received.

    No, I received the same mailing.

    It does appear to be sent by sponsor@sql-server-performance.com, and most of the links seem to point to pentontech.com or windowsitpro.com - which as far as I know are valid sites.

    Anyway, I usually find "SQL Server Magazine" interesting enough, and it covers a lot of areas - DBA, development, OLAP, ...

    ... and to answer the original question ...

    You will receive this type of e-mail nearly everyday, sent by sponsor@sql-server-performance.com - this website is paid for by this type of advertizing.

    I think you can find links for all sponsors on this site, if you don't like clicking from an e-mail message.

    Hi,

    Thank you one and all for replying to my query, the above is the mail I received from sponsor@sql-server-performance.com address.

    When I click the order now link, it takes me to the following URL

    https://store.pentontech.com/index.cfm?s=9&cid=45&promotionid=2109

    Here, for
    SQL Server Magazine, Print Edition 1 Year, 12 Issues

    US - $ 29.97, Canada - $ 35.40, UK/EMEA - £ 35.40, All Other Countries - $ 59.40

    I feel it is worth having this magazine, but I wanted to check up whether I can pay from India/Chennai itself and I am not sure about whom to contact to get more details. Hence I posted here, since the offer is for a very limited time, kindly give me your suggestions at the earliest so that I can be benefited, thank you.

    Regards,
    Deva

    Better to contact PentonTech media in this regard, I hope it will be valid for US customers only. ANyway SQL Magazine has got plenty of useful information with regard to SQL server, one of my old hub.
