It was wonderful to see so many enthusiastic people at our event in Newcastle today. Upon reflection perhaps my 5 minute crash course in PKI was a little too much!

George posted the following image of us at a local pub quiz thanks to Jonathan who took us to a brilliant nearby pub with a smashing curry and Theaksons ale.

I can't believe that the winning team scored 96 out of a possible 100 points - we can second with 93 points.

  • Thanks for another great day up here in Newcastle, found this afternoons session very interesting and will be looking into DPM further.

    Also I may well be in touch soon to pick your brains on wireless security if thats OK.

    Would also be great if use can come back again in the new year :)

  • Shame on you lot.  You only came second?  Well don't go asking for promotions / bonuses / large payrises etc. until you better that score ;-)

  • The pub was Shiremoor House Farm ( Finest pub grub in North Tyneside. Don't even think about attempting the quiz after a few drinks though - it's complicated enough sober!

  • Eileen> We scored 93 out of 100 - that's not exactly bad!

  • Darren> Don't be shy with the wireless questions

  • Was my first technet event - and i really enjoyed it.

    Quite liked the 5 minute PKI demo - and agreed with the comment about not using outlook web access - although i have to say that as most people arn't using digital certificates or encryption email isn't that secure anyway.

    I work in IT and deal with lots and lots of companies including certificate providers and to date have only got 1 signed message (from verisign after i queried why they weren't using them even when they were trying to sell me one.

    Well done in the pub quiz. 1st loser isn't a bad position.

  • Hello thanks for a very interesting event, we were told in the morning session about an initiative called IT Pro Momentum where if we register we can get a Technet Plus subscription.  Do you have any idea who we need to speak to or where we look to register?
