I'm quoting this in from a post on GBM http://www.gottabemobile.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=475&PID=3546#3546 Eric (below) has been a solid contributor to the community since at least mid-2004. Any chance somebody knows somebody  who might be able to help? WN Oh yes – you may know Eric as Sagan ———————— I'd like to ask the tablet pc folks out there if anyone is interested in donating a brand new tablet as an award to a student.  I had a donor ($1500) whose company was purchased, and the new owner doesn’t want to help.  It’s 10 days until the conference and I now have no tablet as … Continue reading Help for a hard working student and Tablet PC Community contributor Sagan

TabletPCBuzz still down

Just an update. Heard from Spencer Goad this morning. " I'm out of the country for school and travelling and don't have access available to look at the server. I'm going to try and find a way to look tonight, but I don't know that I'll have time (we leave tomorrow morning to do mission work in Zagreb, Croatia). " Dennis over at gottabemobile.com (another Tablet PC MVP) is hoping to take a look at the server soon.    

Congratulations Hugo Ortega Microsoft MVP

Knowing that Tablet PC take up in Australia has been very unimpressive, to say the least, he has single-mindedly begun preaching to anyone, willing or unwilling to listen, about the merits of Tablet PC. more on Hugo's blog  Congratulations Hugo!
