Welcome to my new Technet blog.  I've been blogging for a while over on MSDN and I will be mirroring that here, though perhaps in the future I'll decide to migrate over, we'll see. 


Anyway, a little bit about me.  My name is James Whelan and I work for Microsoft UK.  I've been at Microsoft for around 6 1/4 years and started off in Product Support Services (PSS) as an Exchange/Outlook engineer.  I did that role for around 2 1/2 years before I moved over to my current role, which is a Rapid Response Engineer in March 2003.  I've travelled all over Europe, and perhaps some of you reading this have met me.  In the New Year, I'll be taking up a new role as a Technical Lead in the Microsoft Partner Program.  It is a going to be a massive challenge and one which I am very excited about.


I hope you enjoy the blog.  I welcome all comments and feedback.


I've just signed up to Technorati, you can check out my profile there, though it needs a bit of work.


Thanks & take care,
