You may have noticed that some of our posts like "Adventures in Local Data ..." disappeared from the site last Friday.  From what I understand the MSDN blogs server was in a bad "pre-update" state when I posted.  I don't have an ETA for that to be restored.  So rather than waiting I just reposted.  I'm sooo glad I saved a backup! 

If you posted comments or noticed that I appeared to go dark - my apologies.  Please post your comments again. ;)  I'd like to hear what you think.
