  • Blog Post: Tech·Ed 2007 - Day 4: TLC Fun! (Recap)

  • Blog Post: The 2007 Tour: From SecMan to WinHEC to Interop and on to TechEd

    May. What a crazy month! What is it that they say? "May comes in with a joint launch for Forefront and System Center , and goes out with a Windows Server 2008 demo for a BillG keynote at WinHEC in LA" Maybe I'm confusing the old adage about the month of March.
