Greetings from the Future (Or, At Least GMT+8)

It’s the Saturday following my week here in Kuala Lumpur (aka KL) and TechEd 2007 SEA (aka South East Asia).  The week was a good time, and it was great to connect with the local ‘softies, MVPs, partners, and of course, the regional customers.

Once more, I’m plagued by horrifically poor bandwidth on the hotel network.  After having dinner with Sean (aka Seanv6) at the Bahama Breeze, and dodging some hardcore downpours with lots of loud thunder and nearby lightening to boot, I returned to my humble temporary abode to check email, surf for interesting tidbits to kick-off my Thursday afternoon…

WinServer 2003 SP2 Comes Alive!

So.  Yes.  Okay.  I’m a Peter Frampton fan.  And, when I learned that our planned release of Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) had, well, released today, it made me think of Frampton’s “Frampton Comes Alive!” album from 1976.  Why?  I don’t know.  Seriously. I did happen to go to Plattsburgh State University (of…

Thanks to a posting by my hall-mate and fellow SBTU’er Jeff Jones, I’m trying out the beta of Windows Live Writer for this blog entry.  What’s neat is it looks like Office OneNote (which I use to write most of my posts to begin with), but it can publish right to my blog.  Moving on. We’ve just…
