In case you didn't get a chance to go to TechEd this year, I just found that most (all?) of the presentations are available online. I don't mean just the PowerPoint decks, I mean the whole thing. Decks, audio, everything!
Visit http://microsoft.sitestream.com/ to see it all. Tres cool.

Yesterday the Outlook addin by the SpamBayes project has been released in 0.8. I've been using 0.7 for several weeks. I'm impressed, no false positives by now.

.Text is a great product. However, currently there's no comfortable way to administrate the users, but you have to edit and execute a SQL script. I don't know how Scott can manage all these 259 blogs at weblogs @ asp.net.
Since I am going to set-up an internal .Text installation in my company with about 20 bloggers (hopefully), I was thinking about an easier way. I don't want to see 20 work-mates standing in front of me to set-up their blog...
Therefore, I've started to implement an on-line user administration. Here's what it currently looks like:
It just creates and updates users in the database. Some more things have to be done: For non-virtual set-ups it has to create the appropriate folder and the dummy
default.txt file in it, but that's not implemented yet. Additionally, in the user database (i.e.
blog\_Config) a flag has to be added for each user, whether he is allowed to administrate the users.
I would like to know, if anyone else (esp. Scott) is interested in that? Any comments are welcome.
It is REALLY worth doing this, dialup users will love you long time for doing this! (Oh, and you'll effectively quadruple your bandwidth :-)) This is an excellent article from a techie with a cat
