It’s been a while
Hello everyone still listening… I know I’ve been a little silent for a while, well almost 6 months actually. Let’s say I’ve been busy ;-). The first big news is that I have left my old employer after 17 years. I’d like to say that it’s been a great time and I wish them good luck.

I’m getting my head out a little bit now ......

On a personal note...
I was saddened to hear that Gary Gygax had passed away last week. Mr. Gygax is one of the inventors of the Dungeon and Dragon tabletop game. You could say he started a sub-culture which is no small thing. Most of the RPG games (video or tabletop) all take something from D&D.

Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals (Install options)
You got Team Suite? Download the trial version here and install over it. TEfDP will automatically adjust to full version see here for details or you can download 3.8 gig and install over TE and it will also adjust itself (I personally prefer the 20 Meg download). Got Team Dev/Arc/Test then you need to buy the full version since it's a new sku on the same level as the other 3. Got Pro, well sorry but you'll need to upgrade to one of the Team Skus and TEfDP is a good one. By the way, TEfDP is free ......

Around the world in 65 days (Part 5)
16:30 EST – Day 22, On the plane again after 27h shore leave home. My bags didn’t make it from New York to Montreal but I got them at 9pm yesterday just in time to do some washing and repacking. I’m now on the way to Kokomo Indiana (I know less exotic than New-Zealand and Argentina but I’m sure the people there will be as great as everywhere else). This will be my 3rd stop and the 4th for Sandman and Chief. I think I’m back to the correct time zone (in my body anyway) ......

Heads up! Integrated Authentication only in V1
Rob tells us that the Basic Authentication scenario will not be supported in V1 here. This scenario is very important to a lot of small/medium business with consultant on the road a lot. But fear not, there are ways around this problem. 1. Use IA it works for most scenario, where I've seen issues is when leaving corporate environment that are protected by firewall (like everyone!).
