  • Hi Chris,

    Is the event in Framington the same that you did in Waltham before the break for WWPC?

    If it isn't are they going to open it for more registrants?  I got closed out of that 1.  I don't know if I show up will they let me in?

    Your blog is very helpful for me and I am sorry that I didn't check it while working on the small businesses that where hit in the tornafo areas.  I have been help other partners to get their customers with machines and on line asap.


  • Hi Claudette,

    Yes, the new series ( is an extension of the ones we ran in June.  Unfortunately, the Farmington, CT venue isn't terribly large so it filled up quickly.  I don't know if we're creating a waiting list for it.

    The good news is we'll be recording screencasts of the sessions. We'll post them (probably via Channel 9) and I'll blog about it here.



  • Hi Chris, Thanks so much again to you and Rachel for your awesome presentation today in Atlanta! It was great to see all the new HTML5 abilities of IE!
