Microsoft SBS 2008 Roll Out

September 11, 2008 Microsoft rolls out SBS 2008. Here, Scott Cayoutte (left) from the South Florida Technology Network (who organized the hosting of this event) chats with the audience while Kevin Watt (right - Microsoft presenter) takes a much-needed drink of water.

This packed event was attended primarily by user groups from Dade. Broward and Palm Beach counties, as well as others.

Much appreciation is expressed to all of those who participated in making this event a great success.

I was having a nice swim last night. After a while, basically some Aqua-Jogging. Then I remembered that someone had some actual Aqua-Jogging accessories on the pool stuff shelves. Naturally, it was on the top shelf. While trying to get it down, I lost my footing and fell on my face (right into the kitty-litter box. (Which, thankfully, had just been cleaned.)).

Adding insult to injury, I managed to 'pop' my shoulder on the way down. Another trip to the ER. (We've just got to stop meeting like this.....).

Kudo's to Dr. Vidal & Nurse Ivan. It was about two hours of excruciating Agony getting Xrayed & 'prepped'. Finally, I became aware of my surroundings, not knowing that I had been 'elsewhere'. And my arm was back in my shoulder socket. There was a bit of tenderness, but the major pain was gone. I was back home four hours after it happened.

Ah, yes... this is definately a ' Don't try this at home (or on a production-machine)' issue.

I'm still strapped up with a shoulder harness, but I seem to be able to use the computer ok.

Here's hoping that you have a better day than I. ;-)

Update on Hanna

Hi Folks !

I watched Hanna drift North from Boca while at work, on the computer about 14:00 or 15:00.

Relief ! I figured correctly that it was going to be a beautiful evening for the NASF Happy Hour at 'The Sands' (click here).

And if you hit the link above, you'll see that it was a lovely evening indeed. The next Happy Hour is on 03 October 2008.

Best wishes,

(waiting on 'Ike')
