Wow, I haven’t written here in a while. My last post on this blog is from over a year ago, and referred to the BETA of System Center 2012 Service Pack !

Since then, the final version of that Service Pack 1 has shipped and Global Service Monitor has been made general available too - http://blogs.technet.com/b/momteam/archive/2013/01/15/system-center-2012-sp1-operations-manager-is-generally-available.aspx

I have not really been completely silent, tho – just on this blog. With regards to SP1, I have recorded a short presentation for Microsoft Virtual Academy about what is new in SP1 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/video/JJ873818 – if you are coming at MMS 2013 next week, you will hear a lot more about these enhancements.

I also blogged a few technical posts on the momteam blog, a few of those posts here in case you missed them:

I also kept updating and fixing bugs in MPViewer and  OverrideExplorer – for which I keep updating always the same post here http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dmuscett/archive/2012/02/19/boris-s-tools-updated.aspx

I have also been busy with a couple of personal projects, such as restoring a mis-treated guitar I got in a thrift store ( http://www.muscetta.com/2013/01/21/restoring-an-electric-guitar/ ) an building one (almost) from scratch ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/dani3l3/sets/72157632658946681/ ).
