Random roundup post Christmas
Hope you had a great Christmas and happy New Year. I certainly did not work during the break so here is a collection of stuff that I thought was interesting in my inbox when I got back to work today. "A Santa without Excel is like a scrawny kid without a wedgie" I thought I was prone...

Apparently, I'm a work of art
..which is better than a piece of work so I'll go with it. I'd like to aspire to being a SmartArt but that may take time. Still, today I am officially on the front page of the UK Office Online site as the official UK blog and to put my picture there, they had to publish my picture as a official...

Hampshire police bring out the big gun
Good idea to advertise on the back of buses. Shame about the position of the exhaust pipe.

Remember that episode of the apprentice when they had to sell stuff on a shopping channel? Well it was my turn on Saturday night when I appeared on QVC 's Small Office Home Office show to sell Home and Student Edition at the very good price of £63.24. It was good experience and there are few things I...

Building 5 opens
Today we finally opened the new building on the Microsoft Campus. You probably don't care but here are some pictures anyway. Sadly we are being moved back to building 2 which looks much older now by comparison.

We're Microsoft, we know everything
No we don't. But that doesn't stop people thinking we are the guys who control the Internet and can bend the IT time and space. Always a pleasure to chat with Jason earlier today as I waited to do my presentation on Office futures. It can be hard to present on the future of technology not just because...

Ye Olde Office update
ok update on this - I think I've got offers of XP Pro, 2000 Pro, 97 dev ed and pro, Office 95 (no box) and Office 4.3. So does anyone have a copy of Office 95 with the original box? (not just the CD jewel case). Does anyone have 4.2, 4.0 or 3.0?? I'm offering limited edition full versions of Office 2007...

Ye Olde Office - new for old!
I'm trying to complete my set of old versions of Office and I'm prepared to blatantly bribe you if you have one for my collection. If anyone fancies donating me an old copy (must include the CD box and preferably the cardboard box) I'll replace yours with a free copy of 2007 for the first copy of: Office...

Another day, another social networking tool. Seems like every week there's another blimmin internet startup craze to get your head round. I remember the days when I would run off and start setting up my space/site/profile/friends list or whatever but now all I feel is fatigue at the thought of it. So...

10 years on.. gosh that went quickly
This month is my ten year anniversary at Microsoft. You might think that shows a remarkable lack of creativity in career terms and it did strike me that my contratulations and well done note from Bill and Steve (it was a printout) might have read "well done for staying alive and on the payroll for 10...

Iconic quiz - name that office app
I noticed this post today about the new office icons and its a good little quiz for a Monday.. can you name all the applications from the icons? How did you do.. honestly? If you did well on that, here is a harder one: can you name the 7 different Office suites? How many desktop programs and servers...

OMG they killed Clippy!
As we keep saying, using the new Office is childs play. So what better way than creating a comic to explain it. Follow the adventures of Madeline as she discovers the magic ribbon. As we gear up for the consumer release of Windows and Office on Jan 30th this is a fun way we are using to explain the reasoning...

recharge my own batteries
I'm off on holiday for 2 weeks so blog silence will ensue for that time. What should you read into that? well probably that I am sure enough that we are on track for launch and that everything is going smoothly. So have confidence in our timeline. In the meantime, let me leave you with this amusing picture...

It's my pleasure to introduce my friend David Weeks, my counterpart in the Windows Vista team. We are often found demoing at events together. As you may know, we are launching in two stages: to business this year and to consumer and retail in the new year. Both launches are joint Windows, Office and...
