It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, no it’s Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 !!!

In case you haven’t noticed, Microsoft launched a whole bunch of really kewl mice and keyboards today.  I am really looking forward to the Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 and the full size Wireless Laser Mouse 6000.  I already have them on order via our internal ordering process.  After we get the channel fully stuffed for…

Sender ID Framework (SIDF) and Exchange Server 2003 SP2

You may have started to hear rumblings about the Sender ID Framework (SIDF).  The SIDF technology takes another step towards curtailing spam and phishing.  If your Inbox is anything like mine, it regularly receives a considerable amount of unwanted and offensive email.  So how in the world do you block this stuff?  Hopefully you are already using…


The Blogs Of War

On my way home this evening, I read the Wired article, “The Blogs Of War” by John Hockenberry.  It’s an interesting article with a number of angles to consider beyond just blogging.  Check it out.   

Can you beat this?

How many of you need network access wherever you go?  Do you really NEED it, or would it just be nice?  As a Microsoft evangelist, information is a core component of my daily life.  It’s bewildering how much news gets generated each day.  The members of my team are asked questions frequently.  Wouldn’t it be nice to get the…


Messaging enhancements are on the way!!!

Are you bad enough?

Everyone thinks they’re kewl.  You could be kewler riding around on one of these. The gang at Orange County Choppers is making Microsoft a custom chopper and it’s part of a contest from the SQL Server 2005 product group. What’s the catch?  Well, you need to migrate from Oracle to SQL Server and tell us your story. …


3G EVDO Here I Come!!!

I took the plunge.  I signed on the dotted line.  I’m locked for a year.  I’ll have high speed wireless wherever I go in my territory.  Now I need to get my boss to pay for it.  No problem, he’s easy.  Actually, it should be a no brainer.  I bet I spent more on WIFI…


The Need For Speed

I endured the last fiscal year on the road without decent connectivity.  Sure, you can get really good connections in a hotel room now, but that doesn’t do jack when you’re at a meeting location like a theatre.  I swore I wasn’t going to do that in FY06 which started a couple of weeks ago….


What should I run? SBS 2003 Premium SP1 or individual components?

I’m fortunate enough to live in a place where I can get one of those kewl new fiber optic connections to the internet.  It’s called Verizon FIOS and has been steadily rolling out in North Texas and other parts of the USA.  This coming week I am converting my 15meg/2meg residential plan to a static…
