  • Blog Post: TechReady 2

    Wow, it’s already been almost a month since my previous blog entry. Time flies when I’m busy and having fun! I took a much needed vacation over Christmas, but when I got back to work after New Year’s, I found myself completely buried with queued up tasks for TechReady2, the 2nd of our semi-annual technical...
  • Blog Post: A huge step in my Windows Vista journey

    Starting tonight, the Toshiba Tecra M5 is once again my primary machine, and I will never go back to Windows XP. I have very recent builds of Windows Vista (#5520) and Office 2007 (#4414) installed on it, and I finally managed to get Virtual Server 2005 R2 installed and configured – it wasn't difficult;...

  • Blog Post: Back in the saddle…

    Wow, it's been over a month since my last post, and yes, I do have an excuse this time. I took a week off around July 4th and was completely "off the grid" (no cell phone, no computer, nothing).

    Father’s Day is my favorite day of the year – better than Christmas or even my birthday. Unlike Christmas, Father’s Day is all about me, and unlike my birthday, it always lands on a Sunday, which means I never have to worry about taking a day off. It’s the one day out of the whole year when I can sleep...

    [ Update: Yikes! Several people have informed me that my SharePoint Community side meetings conflict with my colleague, Mike Fitzmaurice ’s sessions on Windows SharePoint Servers V3 Overview and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Overview, which are expected to be standing room only. Doh! This is...
  • Blog Post: I created the first official 2007 Office system Beta 2 Golden Disc!

    And Bill Gates gave it along with the Golden Discs for Windows Vista Beta 2 and Windows Server “Longhorn” Beta 2 to Alan Nunns of Chevron on stage during his keynote session at WinHEC last Tuesday while I was watching the live Webcast at home. It was surreal! The picture (see below) of Bill and Alan...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft "Live Search" and a couple of other very cool things

    At the CEO Summit yesterday, Microsoft’s end-to-end search strategy was announced as “ Live Search ” (which I really like), and three new products were formally announced: Windows Live Search on the Desktop (I’m indifferent about the name): Helps you find precisely the file or information you’re...
