So before I continue my saga on my experience as a partner, I thought I'd post a quick comment about the ongoing SMB Nation conference currently happening on the Microsoft campus at the Microsoft Conference Center. So far it's been great as a Microsoft team member to get out and talk with customers and partners who are using SBS and building their businesses around it. It's incredibly empowering and fun to talk with people about how they use SBS and how we can help make it better. It's also been slightly strange to find the number of people who know me or have heard of me through this blog or other talks/postings I've done.

I'll be presenting a session on SP1 and R2 Saturday morning, but tonight I have to stop by my accountant again and hopefully get his port forwarding working, which will help me not have to visit for every single thing. :-)
