XBOX 360

Yeah… I’ve been rather delinquent in my blog postings of late.  I really enjoyed some scaled-back work-time over the holidays.  No… I didn’t take vacation.  But I did spend more time with my family.  I spent my working hours working on content for this new quarter of TechNet Events, and what time I may have given to blogging was spent playing with kids and assembling their new toys. 

“Why the XBOX logo?  Did you break down and get your kids the Xbox 360?”

Well… I said I wasn’t going to – mainly because I didn’t think they wanted one so bad until the day before they went on sale.  So I was resigned to the fact that it would be nearly impossible to find one, and I told the kids that they shouldn’t expect one because of that.  However… thanks to a spouse’s cousin’s eldest son who happens to work at a major electronics merchandiser across town, I was able to get one of a shipment of five that happened to arrive the week before Christmas.  (Thanks again, Terry!) 

“So what are you doing now?”

Well.. we’ve got some great content coming to you in our live events, so I’m excited about that.  And I’ll be doing a couple of webcasts on Securing your Exchange Servers in a couple of weeks.  But tomorrow I get on a plane and head to Seattle for a week of “TechReady”, which is an employee-only training conference for technical people like me “in the field” for Microsoft.  I’m excited to get in-depth with what’s coming in Exchange 12, Office 12, Vista, and who knows what other new stuff coming even farther into the future. 

By the way… do you like my new interactive photo on the left? 
Yep.  Kevin’s been getting fancy with the HTML! 

 

  • Love the photo...although it wasn't interactive for me.

  • Really? If you mouse over my picture, doesn't it change to a different photo of me wearing my "The BLOG!" shirt?

    Hmmm

  • Nope...it does change in either IE or Firefox for me.

  • Hmmm... anyone else not seeing it? Very strange.

    Chad - what if you go to http://www.technetevents.com/kevinremde and click on my photo, and on the resulting profile page, do you then see the mouse-over working on my picture (and on Matt Hester's)?

  • Your family enjoyed having extra time with you the last few weeks! :)

  • http://www.technetevents.com/kevinremde...yes, both photos changed on mouseover (with Firefox).

    Of course, what I REALLY need is to learn my left from the other left. (DOH!) I was thinking it was the picture to the other left...err, right. (The blog picture from your T-Shirt.) Now, your photo to the left does change on mouseover.

    So relax...you're not going crazy...I am.

  • <*whew*> Thanks Chad. :)

    And thanks to you too, Nancy! ;)
