Apologies for "going dark". I had to put everything on hold for about a month to deal with the aftermath of the big windstorm we had back on Dec. 14th (you can read about it here on my personal blog, if you're interested), and it's taken me another month to catch up at work.  

And now that Windows Vista has shipped, I've moved on to Windows Live services evangelism.

You can still expect more posts on Windows Vista; over time, the focus will be more on Windows Live services. Just so you know, I'm starting off with a "blank slate" and there's a lot I need to learn to get up to speed. I'll be describing my journey as I go along - so I hope you'll want to come along for the ride :-)
