Remember back in June I mentioned Mark Russinovich had talked about his experience starting at Microsoft? I still keep up with his blog (and any tester should keep an eye on it as well) so this notice I received stood out to me. Mark is giving an online talk about Vista performance on September 24. I've already marked my calendar and recommend you do the same.

    Here's the official marketing spiel (which doesn't include the link they included in the email notice - https://ms.istreamplanet.com/springboard. ):
