  • Blog Post: What to wear? What to wear?

    Aaron Junod’s recent post on “ Packing for TechEd ” got me thinking about sharing my own list, and advice, too. I've been to 9 TechEds (Wow! This is the 10th for me!), and I've always packed too much. I always forget about the number of shirts we get, or ones I buy in the MS Store, so I usually end...
  • Blog Post: I gotta get me one of these...

    This t-shirt ROCKS….
  • Blog Post: How do those Hands-On-Labs actually work?

    And how many computers are actually there in that big room? For your answer, check this out: Robert Scobel recorded a Channel 9 interview with Corey Hynes ; the guy responsible for putting it all together this year.
  • Blog Post: Get Perpendicular!

    My friend and developer/MSDN presenter colleague Jacob posted about this, and I’m going to steal it from him. <heh> Hitachi has a fun animation showing off the potential for new hard disk storage technology … a GREAT example of explaining something in simple terms that would otherwise...
  • Blog Post: TechEd Video Blog - HOL Fixup

    Finally, another video blog entry… On Monday, June 6th, Chris Henley and I were working in the Server Infrastructure area of the Hands-on-Labs. We volunteered to fix a lab that was broken (HOL163), so I thought I’d document our efforts on video. Here is the result.
  • 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: It's about time!

    Consortium to Invest in Time Travel I’m so proud that Microsoft is firmly behind this effort.

    …or for anyone who wants to learn more about the tools available for Security Update management, there is what looks to be a very useful webcast getting into greater detail about using MBSA 2.0, WSUS, and SMS going on tomorrow. “Hey! Those are three of the four topics you discuss today !” Right...

  • Blog Post: Just because you can't be there doesn't mean you can't attend...

    "Huh? That didn't make sense, Kevin." Let me explain. As you know, TechEd 2005 is sold out. But you can still get in on the action from home for many of the live sessions going on. Here's are the details: --- Microsoft Tech·Ed 2005 is sold out! If you missed your chance to register...
  • Blog Post: Another chance to attend TechEd 2005!

    I learned on Dick Carlson’s blog that there are some additional passes to TechEd 2005 going on sale now. Dick says the cost is $1,995, (although the site says $1,895). Here’s the registration page. See you there!
  • Blog Post: Remde TechEd Diaries - Thursday

    Thursday. We’re slowly reaching the end. Last night’s “Influencer Appreciation Party” was fun… but it might have been more fun if they’d kept the Karoake idea going. My opinion: More people were going to enjoy that than the dance mix. And besides… I’m...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 7

    The day was a full one. Apparently. Too full to take many videos. I did manage to take a few pictures as we were walking out of Universal Studios. John Baker say’s hi to his mom. And Benjamin Franklin is quoted. Click HERE for Part VII
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 2

    Here is video blogcast entry number two from last year’s TechEd in Orlando. On Monday, June 6th, Chris Henley and I were working in the Server Infrastructure area of the Hands-on-Labs. We volunteered to fix a lab that was broken (HOL163), so I thought I’d document our efforts on video. As you’ll...
  • Blog Post: Are you up for a Pre-TechEd Party?

  • Blog Post: How to attend TechEd without attending TechEd

    You can pre-order the Event DVDs ! Even if you’re not able to attend, $195 will get you recordings of all the TechEd 2005 sessions. Did you know that Microsoft has this “ Event DVD Store ”? I didn’t know it until I saw today’s Windows Platform News email. Sweet!
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 1

    Yes, it was a grand time last year in Orlando. In thinking ahead to the upcoming TechEd 2005 in Boston, I re-lived some of my memories by taking a look at the blog posts I did last year during the show; and in particular, some of the bad videos I put up for your enjoyment. “Bad? They weren’t bad....
  • Blog Post: It's like the first day of summer vacation...

    My kids will be done with school for the year very soon, and entering into that heavenly time known as “Summer Vacation”. And it got me thinking about what that day used to mean to me growing up. What a thrill! Wasn’t it? For weeks up to that day you feel the excitement building…...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 05 is filling up!

    If you haven’t signed up already, you’d better get signed up soon! I’d love to meet you there! Make sure you introduce yourself to me. I’ll probably be hanging out by the cabanas and answering questions when I’m not attending the many great IT Pro-related sessions going...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 4

    Part 4 of my video “Rock-U-mentary” (the sights, sounds, and smells) of TechEd 2005 was footage from Monday, June 6th. It is the longest of the videos, and contains some introductions of several of my team mates. We even caught our manager, Stacey Copeland, putting up posters without permission. ...
