One degree There wasn't a whole of blogging (or snowing) going on while I was visiting family and friends back in Canada last week.  The sunsets, however, were gorgeous!

I'm back in action today, knee-deep in the e-mail. 

Events: I've had a few people mail me asking about upcoming MSDN and community events in Ireland.  Here are two:

Webcast - Using Eclipse with Team Foundation Server: Team Foundation Server enthusiasts who work across multiple platforms or development environments should definitely check out Martin Woodward's webcast this evening on Using Eclipse with Team Foundation Server.  (9:00AM Pacific, which makes it 5:00PM GMT).  I'm on a promise to Martin to answer his blogtag this week, and I most certainly read his great TFS blog!

SQL Server Ireland Usergroup Meeting: I found through http://www.mtug.ie/ an upcoming SQL Server Ireland User Group meeting with Bob Duffy from Microsoft Consulting Services (who is excellent), on the 16th in Dublin, speaking about SQL Server Integration Services Testing, Instrumentation & Monitoring.

I was chatting with Clare today, and we'll have a full event update and a new issue of MSDN Flash Ireland out by the end of the week.
