  • Blog Post: Cool. It's in the bag.

    I hear that Windows Vista Beta 2 is in the bag that all attendees are getting at TechEd. That’s great news for the many who have been trying to download it and not having much luck. (It’s hard for any company to have the bandwidth to allow the whole world to download that stuff!) I’m...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 2.5

    This was just a short trip I took..
  • Blog Post: Busy Busy Busy and lovin' it.

    Hi all, Yes, I’ve been away from blogging for a little bit. Sure, I add my webcast notes and Q&A, but other than that I’ve been swamped preparing for up-coming events and webcasts, so I’m in serious learning mode right now. “What are you learning?” Well.. the...
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 1

    Day 1 – Exchange Server 2007 Pre-Conference Session and Keynotes Today I worked as a proctor in the pre-conference instructor-lead session on Exchange Server 2007. My time was spent learning more than helping, but I managed to answer a few questions. My team mate and partner here at TechEd,...
  • 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...

    Day 0 – Travel to Boston Yes! I’m here! Bean town! TechEd 2006! As you can see from the photo, even the baggage claim at Logan is welcoming us to TechEd. My room is nice (I’m at the Cambridge Marriott), and I’m just relaxing after a nice burger and beer at the bar downstairs...
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 4

    Day 4 – Yet ANOTHER TechEd Day Are we done yet? No! But we’ve passed the half-way point. And my feet are very glad to know that. My Wednesday of TechEd 2006 was again spent smiling. Smiling while enjoying talking to people at the Messaging TLC booth and later at the TechNet booth. And...
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 5

    Day 5 – AGAIN Yet Another TechEd Day Thursday? Already? Wow. I can’t believe the week is almost over. And yet I feel like I could use a week of sleep to catch up. Today I worked the TLC booth again. Had some fun conversations and video taped a few good questions and answers. (I expect to have time...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2006 Early Registration Discount ends soon!

    I just noticed this, so I thought I would pass it on… “Early Bird Registration” for TechEd 2006 (Boston – June 11–16) ends this coming Friday, April 14th. If you’re thinking of going, now would be a good time to register and save $200. See you there!
  • Blog Post: Tune in. Geek out.

    Need something to listen to? I am becoming a big fan of podcasts. No.. I don’t own an iPod or have iTunes installed. I have an iRiver for when I workout. I use IE 7’s ability to manage my feeds (with enclosure downloads). And I also have a really cool phone ( Windows Mobile 5 rocks!) that...

    Wondering about Windows Desktop Search? Wonder no more! My friend and “cow-orker”** Matt “Mongo” Hester has created a very detailed, beautifully done screencast all about how it works and what it does for you. He’s also in the process of submitting an article to...
  • 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: 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. ...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2006 is coming!

    Registration is open! I hope I’ll be there. I haven’t missed one since 1998, and I sure don’t want to miss this one! And you don’t want to, either. Believe me, you don’t want to miss out. And you don’t want to wait too long to register. Last year it sold out...
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 2

    Day 2 – A Proper TechEd Day Finally got into the typical TechEd routine. Breakfast, Breakouts, and [insert something else here that starts with B that you’d find at TechEd] I had another chance to witness an incredible presenter work his magic yet again. Steve Riley did a great presentation...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 8 of 8

    Last one. Shot quite a few things in this just-under-4–minute video. Keith likes “The Mummy”, and Harold got shorter. Rob Westover draws and then awards the XBOX winner for our “Where’s Rob?” contest. Click HERE for Part VIII And that concludes a very long, FUN week! Boston here I come...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 3

    Part 3 in my revisit of video blogcasting from TechEd 2005 features a quick walk (fast forward video) through the exhibit hall and company store, eventually winding up at the Microsoft Across America “mobile experience” truck. Click here for Part 3
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 6

    Party time! Part 6 of my videos comes from June 8. I took some video of Karaoke at the IT Influencer Appreciation party, and immediately following at the bar next door, as me and my team mates enjoyed some live music. It’s a short video, so enjoy it over and over again. Click here for Part VI
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 7

    Day 7 – The TechEd Post Mortem I’m typing this sitting in seat 3D (First class! Yeah!) on the flight home. It’s Saturday. I’m tired. I really want to be home. Yesterday was my daughter Laura’s 9th birthday, and I’m thinking about the long talk I had with her on the phone. She had a great day, and...
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 3

    Day 3 – Another TechEd Day Didn’t get in as early as I should have, but still managed to get a lot accomplished. After a bit of morning blogging, I made it over to the TechEd Store to buy a couple of goodies for my kids. (They come to expect SOMETHING from Dad every time I go away to TechEd...

    Like you need another reason to attend webcasts! Check out this site, and list of webcasts. If you attend one of these, and submit an evaluation at the end, you are entered in a drawing to possibly win a “full conference pass” to TechEd 2006 in Boston. Here are the official rules ....
  • Blog Post: Kevin's TechEd 2006 Diaries - Day 6

    Day 6 – The LAST TechEd Day All done. No more. My brain is full. (Of what, though.. that’s debatable.) I got in early enough to catch two sessions before working in the TLC again this afternoon. Pretty quiet. (Many have already left for the airport.) Coolest demo I saw: This was...
  • Blog Post: TechEd 2005 Revisited; Part 5

    Part 5 of the videos from TechEd 2005 included a plug for a contest that has since ended. The SQL Server Chopper contest ended at the SQL Server 2005 Launch later in the year, when some lucky folks won some choppers built by the Orange County Chopper guys. The video features Chris Henley (and his...
