away!!!

I’ll be flying to NOLA tomorrow morning to meet up with friends who left today.  I’ve got a day and a half to familiarize myself with the area and get settled in.  I’m looking forward to an excellent dinner tomorrow night on Frenchmen Street in the French Quarter!

Rand Morimoto and I will be presenting, “UNC303: Upgrading from Microsoft Exchange Server 2003/2007 to Exchange Server 2010: Tips, Tricks, and Lessons Learned” on Monday at 4:30pm.  Also, be sure to check out my Exchange Roundtable that same evening after the Exhibition Hall Reception.

Be sure to stop and say “Hi” if you run into me!  I’ll see you in New Orleans!!!
