Tech Ed - Day 3 - Wednesday
Since it was our very own Ken Spencer doing a presentation on Secure Apps, it didn't matter that it started at 0'dark thirty -- I had to be there. And I'm glad I went, even though I ended up traversing the main hall at least twice to get breakfast and get back to Ken's venue. Main hall treks are only noteworthy because the main hall is about 10 miles long. By the way, somebody warn Bill Plummer that the food was not worth the walk.

Tech Ed - Day 1 -Monday
Keynote- Mr. Ballmer gets way more out of a slide than I do. Primary theme is connectivity, as it has been since Windows 95. The document handler in Longhorn looks awesome. After using a nifty search capability to reduce the number of target docs, they zoom in and all the docs began to wysiwyg render - graphics and all. As I said, awesome. To stress security, they showed us several times that a corporation can wipe a lost PDA or even set it to wipe itself after a defined number of login failures. ......
