  • Blog Post: Kevin’s TechEd Diary – Day 4 (and beyond)

    Dear TechEd Diary, This entry is several days over-due, but I hope you’ll understand. Towards the end of the conference the schedule is tight, and the exhaustion is real. So I thought rather than taking time out of my day on Thursday or Friday I’d just take in and enjoy the rest of the week and finish...
  • Blog Post: Kevin’s TechEd Diary – Day 3

    Dear TechEd Diary, Well diary, if you ever had any doubts about “the cloud”, they should have been eased a bit if you attended or watched the live stream of Mark Russinovich and Mark Minasi’s “Mark and Mark” cloud discussion this morning. Besides being entertaining, it was very informative. It’s always...
  • Blog Post: Kevin’s TechEd Diary – Day 2

    Dear TechEd Diary, My day 2 started much as my day 1 did. “Too early?” Exactly. Sure, if there is such a thing as “too much fun”, I came close to it. But even though last night’s Exhibit Hall Reception and the later “MCP Celebration” party at Howl at the Moon was a lot of fun, I managed to get home before...
  • Blog Post: Kevin’s TechEd Diary – Day 1

    Here’s a quick post with some of my photos so far. Trying out a neat photo album feature by just dragging multiple photos into Windows LiveWriter. Included are a couple of shots from the Krewe Meet-n-Greet last night, and random shots of people and food. Now I’m off to another session… TechEd Day 0 PM...
  • Blog Post: Kevin’s TechEd Diary – Day 0

    Dear TechEd Diary, It’s the day before TechEd, which leads to my 3rd favorite week of the year (just behind Christmas/New Year and Easter/Holy week). My flight appears to be on-time. The day here in Minneapolis will be a good one, weather-wise. It will be nice in Houston, too. I haven’t packed much yet...
  • Blog Post: Blog Series: Windows 8.1 for Business

  • Blog Post: Help Shape Microsoft’s Cloud Technologies: Join the IT Pro User Panel

    IT Professionals: Have you ever been deep in the guts of a gnarly infrastructure deployment, automation, configuration, trouble-shooting or similar task, and thought to yourself something like this: “Why didn’t that darn product team at Microsoft make this tool work better, more like what I need it to...
  • Blog Post: Welcome Back!

    Happy Monday! “Monday? It’s Thursday, dummy.” Right. But it feels like Monday. Today is the dreaded first day back to work after a nice long Christmas and New Year vacation. For many (like me), it’s the most difficult-to-get-out-of-bed morning there is. So this note to...
  • Blog Post: Build a better Christmas tree-stand...

    ...and the world will beat a path to your door! Okay - it's really "mouse-trap"... but today our family is going out to get a natural Christmas tree , and after searching for our old one we realized (and remembered) that last year our tree stand broke. So this year we have to buy a new one. As I was...

  • Blog Post: Blonde Developers Have More Fun

    Well.. it’s been said that “Blondes have more fun”. And we all know that Developers are having more fun than IT Pros this week, so it must follow that blonde developers are probably having more fun than anybody. Yes.. I must confess… this is NOT my natural hair color… AND I used to be a Software Engineer...
  • Blog Post: Remde TechEd Diaries - Sunday

    I’m here! Or-LAN-doooh! Florida! …and the weather is just like Minnesota… that is if Minnesota was hot and sticky and a gazillion degrees warmer. So, it’s kinda like Minnesota in late July. My flight was scheduled to leave Minneapolis at 6:56pm, and I even had been bumped...
  • Blog Post: Cool Rush Fan Tribute Video

    A friend passed this along to me. I was never a huge Rush fan… but I sure like this song and especially what this Neil Peart fan did to animate this tribute. "A Digital Man"
  • Blog Post: WinFS: Living? Dead? Living-Dead?

    WinFS: What’s up? Readers who follow Microsoft news and blogs already have probably seen the buzz in the blogosphere concerning the fate of WinFS; the “file system as (or in a) relational database”. Apparently rumors of it’s death are based on the fact that members of the product...

  • Blog Post: Did you know it’s “Computer Science Education Week”?

      “No, I didn’t know that.” I didn’t either… until just this morning when I received an e-mail about it.  Apparently December 6-12, 2009 is officially Computer Science Education Week .  And it’s about time, if you ask me. Microsoft Research has also joined the cause, and provided resources...

  • Blog Post: Kevin's 'New Day' Video Diary - Part 2

    Part II - The Road to Milwaukee (Actually, Brookfield, Wisconsin.) This part 2 video is of the first half of my second week of "Launch" events for Microsoft Across America .

  • Blog Post: TechNet is “Unleashed”

    “Unleashed? How about ‘TechNet Unplugged’?” Hmm… That might be fun. But the demos would be pretty lame. No.. I’m talking about a series of events we’re doing for IT Pros in the Central Region (where I work) called “ TechNet Unleashed ”. These are typically held at a local Microsoft office, and are...
  • Blog Post: Oh no!.. It's Microsoft BOB, reincarnate!

    Got an e-mail today on my personal Windows Live Hotmail account. It was an invitation to the Windows Live Messenger Cafe . Oddly (and sadly, or even amusingly.. take your pick) enough, it actually didn't arrive in my inbox. It was in junk e-mail. [ insert *Rim-Shot* sound effect here ] It is a rather...
