Preparing to blog, I saw a new blog post by Jorge Segarra (blog | twitter) that will identify and alert you when you have long-running alert jobs. This is something that I have had on my list to sit down and write when I found some extra time (translation: never going to happen any time soon). I was so excited, I thought I would pass it on to you before I even played with it myself. The life of a DBA sometimes does include doing the happy dance when you see something totally cool. Enjoy!
