About "Everything Microsoft."

Hi, Thanks for taking time to read about my blog. Let me start by telling you little bit of myself. My name is Arbindo Chattopadhyay - try pronouncing it right the first time :) - and I am Consultant with Microsoft Consulting Services in Chcago. My passion lies in implementation of software in best possible manner. I started my jouney with software with GW BASIC and since then grown up along with the Microsoft platform. Over the years, I always get excited with the power of the platform and the integration of various products that enhance productivity for corporate as well as home users.

This blog will not be specific to a product or technology, but surely will be Microsoft platform centric. You should expect to read about technologies that make life easier and better. I know this introduction does not provide a clear direction about the blog, but then, isn't this how a Consultant's professional life is anyway?
