    Hi Rick!  

    I’m a satisfied customer!  It’s terrific that you and the other team members are taking the initiative to publish all kinds of valuable info here on the blog.  It’s an added bonus that some of the comments can spark conversation or discussion sometimes.  I’m glad that the RSS feed includes the comments, as I like to read the input from other IT Pros as much as the original posts.

    I enjoy From the Trenches, Your Solutions, Guest Bloggers (yeah, the Microsoft team is good too,…. but the guests ROCK), and it is fantastic to be able to keep abreast of what is happening in other cities, so the Communities section rounds out the stuff that I enjoy the most.  

    That said, I hope you all keep up the efforts.  I’d like to see more comments from the readers of the blog, and that’s only going to happen if you keep it up!



    p.s.: should my name be drawn for a prize here, I’ll see that it is raffled away at the next <a href="">WITPro</a&gt; Meeting!

    Like all of the TechNet Blogs this is an interesting one. It is one I read nearly daily. every morning in Europe, I start with reading up my blogs and this is one that I regularly stick a little longer with. I like to read up instead of audio or video blogs.

    This gives my the opportunity to stop, make phonecalls and come back to the article I was reading.As an MCT in ITPro stuff, this blog is one of the sources of my information.

    I think you are doing great.

    The information found here is really good, quite informative and easy to read.

    I check every couple of days for new content to read.

    Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.

    I’ve been meaning to check out this blog since the "ready for a new day" release in balmy Saskatchewan but have not done so until today.  From my first impression, I think I’ll be checking back regularly.  Looks like you’re doing a fine job.

    Hey Bert,

    I spent 17 years in the military and found the experience wonderful to help get a job.  Where do you live and perhaps we can connect you to someone in that area.  there are lots of companies looking for good people.

    feel free to contact me directly @

    I would love to hear you story on the transition and I think others would too.  Breaking in from the Military is not always an easy task.  sometimes it hard to put in context some of the skills you’ve learned and how applicable they are to the industry.

    take care,

    What makes Microsoft different is how you grow the community by directly allowing direct feedback shows, site, or products.  Tags are good, but how about more links and presentations?  How about a Voicecast? Create a .wav file, dial-a-number, and I tune in? Videocats are great too!  I would like to see more of open betas (maybe the next Windows) shared among the IT Pro communities.
