A few more...

always put your transaction log on the same disk as your data. the disk has less distance to move then....

RAID mean redundant disks. Why waste money on disks which are redundant ?

Regularly test your DR plan but randomly pulling disks on your production system

instead of buying expensive new hardware. Use virtual server and allocate your databases extra disks this way...

SQL injection is only a problem if you insert data into your database. Disable all your triggers to get around this...

DBCC Checkdb - this is a really old command, no-one uses it anymore..

High availability is a waste of time and slows down performance.

adventureworks is important. never delete it...

SQL is more efficient if you write as much as your query on one line as possible. it's faster to parse....
