Who went to TechEd this year? What did you think, what was your fave lecture?

Well I missed everyone then Frown. Nevermind, I was so busy going to back-to-back lectures and hanging around the HP stand hoping for an XBox.

Did anyone see Steve Riley's lectures? Very entertaining. He sounds like an American comedian, whose name I can't remember. Elmer or something?

We should organise a Geekzone event next year and put a few faces to names.

Yer, I went along as well. Good content in most of the sessions I attended. Unfortunately missed all of the Steve Riley ones due to conflicts, and once due to the theatre being full! I'm not sure I could pick a fave session, although the powershell one had an ... interesting start. Didn't win a damn thing unfortunately, which was surprising considering how much stuff was being handed out. I was a little disspointed going to the 'ask the experts'. One of my collegues had a question about a DFS issue we are having and we got a blank stare from the MS expurt and a 'what's DFS?' response. Maybe we should have swapped hats.

I can't brain today. I have the dumb.
