Tune in. Geek out.

Need something to listen to? I am becoming a big fan of podcasts.  No.. I don’t own an iPod or have iTunes installed.  I have an iRiver for when I workout.  I use IE 7’s ability to manage my feeds (with enclosure downloads). And I also have a really cool phone (Windows Mobile 5 rocks!) that also holds lots… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 7

Day 7 – The TechEd Post Mortem I’m typing this sitting in seat 3D (First class!  Yeah!) on the flight home.  It’s Saturday.  I’m tired.  I really want to be home.  Yesterday was my daughter Laura’s 9th birthday, and I’m thinking about the long talk I had with her on the phone.  She had a great day,… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 6

Day 6 – The LAST TechEd Day All done.  No more.  My brain is full.  (Of what, though.. that’s debatable.) I got in early enough to catch two sessions before working in the TLC again this afternoon.  Pretty quiet.  (Many have already left for the airport.) Coolest demo I saw:This was a great, very “jaw-dropping” demo.  During the… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 5

Day 5 – AGAIN Yet Another TechEd Day Thursday?  Already?  Wow.  I can’t believe the week is almost over.  And yet I feel like I could use a week of sleep to catch up. Today I worked the TLC booth again.  Had some fun conversations and video taped a few good questions and answers.  (I expect to have… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 4

Day 4 – Yet ANOTHER TechEd Day Are we done yet?  No!  But we’ve passed the half-way point.  And my feet are very glad to know that.  My Wednesday of TechEd 2006 was again spent smiling.  Smiling while enjoying talking to people at the Messaging TLC booth and later at the TechNet booth.  And smiling for… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 3

Day 3 – Another TechEd Day Didn’t get in as early as I should have, but still managed to get a lot accomplished.  After a bit of morning blogging, I made it over to the TechEd Store to buy a couple of goodies for my kids.  (They come to expect SOMETHING from Dad every time I go away to… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 2

Day 2 – A Proper TechEd Day Finally got into the typical TechEd routine.  Breakfast, Breakouts, and [insert something else here that starts with B that you’d find at TechEd] I had another chance to witness an incredible presenter work his magic yet again.  Steve Riley did a great presentation on what’s new and cool in ISA… Read more

Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 1

Day 1 – Exchange Server 2007 Pre-Conference Session and Keynotes Today I worked as a proctor in the pre-conference instructor-lead session on Exchange Server 2007.  My time was spent learning more than helping, but I managed to answer a few questions.  My team mate and partner here at TechEd, Harold Wong, answered many more.  The evening… Read more

Cool. It’s in the bag.

I hear that Windows Vista Beta 2 is in the bag that all attendees are getting at TechEd.  That’s great news for the many who have been trying to download it and not having much luck. (It’s hard for any company to have the bandwidth to allow the whole world to download that stuff!) I’m… Read more
