CTDOTNET Event (Tuesday April 29th 6 – 8 PM): SQL Server 2008: Should .NET Developers Care? – Adam Machanic (SQL Server MVP & Author).

Event to be held at Microsoft Farmington CT Office. Please send a RSVP to ctdotnet@gmail.com – we need a pizza/soda count! The marketing message behind SQL Server 2008 has certainly been odd. Phrases like “pervasive insight” and “beyond relational” are difficult to interpret, and it has been a challenge getting a solid explanation of why […]

The wiki was ‘seeded’ with content from the Expression Web Help Files, but as most wikis go, it’s up for […]

Finally made the decision – getting a Sprint HTC Mogul on Wednesday!

For quite a while now, I’ve wanted to go from two devices to one. I’m using an HP iPaq rx3715 for my Calendar and Contacts, and a Sprint Samsung A920 cell phone. After going around and around with all the options available with Sprint, I’ve finally chosen the Sprint HTC Mogul. It’s got all the […]

Is the Dalai Lama is checking out?

We went downstairs a little after 3 to go over to the WSCTC to register for the MVP Summit and there were police and US State Department Displomatic Security Detail all over the lobby – we figure the Dalai Lama was checking out of the hotel – that was the rumor going around. We didn’t get to […]

Where has the Seattle sun gone?

Published by under MVP Summit

Last night it was still around 70 degrees when we arrived in Seattle – today it’s barely 40 and no sun – brrrr. I really hope it warms up again or I will be wishing I brought some shoes and socks instead of just sandals.

MVP Twitter War in Seattle

So far there are two groups set up on Twitter for the MVP Global Summit – @msmvpgroup and @mvp08 Follow either to keep up with the MVPs at the Summit. I think @mvp08 will win out because it’s shorter – easier for texting and TinyTwitter.

So where have I been and where am I going?

And tomorrow I am leaving for the 2008 MVP Global Summit. I was planning on leaving this morning, but […]
