Trying to give something back to the Community...
Tomorrow is the inaugural meeting of the UK Windows Management User Group, right after the UK MMS event finishes. I know that the UK MMS event is full but I'd love to see you at our user group meeting so if you plan on attending please let me know ASAP and I'll make sure the Receptionists know to expect you.
If you can’t make tomorrow but are interested in the group let me know and I’ll make sure you’re kept up-to-date of progress and future meetings.
See you tomorrow.
Rumour has it that SMS 2003 SP3 has now been released. Nothing on the public SMS Site just yet though (I think it's a bit early and it will probably be Monday/ Tuesday of next week before you see the link appear).
Blimey, the UK MMS Event I blogged about the other day (http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/chobbs/archive/2007/04/16/mms-coming-to-the-uk.aspx), is now full.
BUT Microsoft have created a waitlist so if you didn't manage to register before now make sure you do so ASAP to stand a chance of making the waitlist. For those of you that have managed to register I look forward to seeing you there.
Oh and don't forget the inuagrual UK Windows Management User Group meeting right after this event finishes (we'll announce where on the day).
For sometime now a few of us have been looking to start a Systems Management User Group in the UK. A few people “out there” have contacted me expressing an interest in such a group. Well now is your chance to have your say.
On Tuesday 1st May right after the UK MMS event finishes everyone has the opportunity to meet with Microsoft, members of FAQShop, and myself to discuss the possibility of establishing such a group. Don’t be scared, it won’t be at all formal and you won’t be tortured in anyway. We just want to give people the opportunity to get together and exchange thoughts and ideas.
If for any reason you can’t make the meeting and are interested in such a group please contact me and I’ll make sure your interest is noted and you’re kept informed of the outcome of the meeting and plans for the group going forward.
On Tuesday 1st May Microsoft will be hosting a “Mini-MMS” event here in the UK entitled “Microsoft Management Summit (UK) - Are you in control? How to manage and secure your infrastructure”.
This event will include the highlights of this year’s Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) held in San Diego last month. Starting at 09:30, the morning will consist of three keynotes followed by lunch, and then an afternoon full of breakout sessions on various topics from SCCM to SCOM to Forefront Security to Virtualisation, the list goes on and on.
I’ll be there and would love to meet as many of you as possible to get your thoughts and feedback on FAQShop and how Microsoft and I can better serve the Systems Management Community.

Been feeling under the weather this week hence the lack of updates.
Anyway, I've just created a new page containing what I consider are useful SMS 2003 Tools and Utilities which you can access using the link below.

WOW - Necy and I went to see Shakira in concert last night. After waiting for 2 1/2 hours she finally came on stage and boy was it worth the wait.
Man she can sing and dance and when she finished off the encore with "My Hips Don't Lie" (my favourite Shakira song), the place went absolutely nuts (and so did we )
