Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 4: TLC Fun! (Recap)
Once more, I'm plagued by horrifically poor bandwidth on the hotel network. After having dinner with Sean (aka Sean v6 ) at the Bahama Breeze , and dodging some hardcore downpours with lots of loud thunder and nearby lightening to boot, I returned to my humble temporary abode to check email, surf for...

Greetings from the Future (Or, At Least GMT+8)
It's the Saturday following my week here in Kuala Lumpur (aka KL) and TechEd 2007 SEA (aka South East Asia).

I Can See Clearly Now the Firewall is On...
Thanks to a posting by my hall-mate and fellow S B TU'er Jeff Jones , I'm trying out the beta of Windows Live Writer for this blog entry. What's neat is it looks like Office OneNote (which I use to write most of my posts to begin with), but it can publish right to my blog. Moving on. We've just published...

WinServer 2003 SP2 Comes Alive!

And, when I learned that our planned release of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) had, well, released today , it made me think of Frampton's " Frampton Comes Alive! " album from 1976. Why? I don't know. Seriously. I did happen to go to Plattsburgh State...
