Yep. We are almost at the end of the series! In addition to having one hell of a good time doing the sessions and can't say enough good things about my audience. This is my first series at MS for the webcast stuff and have had an absolute blast doing it all. Many thanks to everyone who has or will check out the sessions and looking forward to seeing you for the final session. :)

If you want to take IIS7 for a spin, this is a really, really good (well, free!!) offer: http://www.iis.net/default.aspx?tabid=7&subtabid=791
From the info on the site:
"Want to Go Live but don't want to set up a server? These great Hosting partners have the answer and the best part is, it's FREE! IIS7 Beta Hosting is an excellent way for developers & designers to take the sites they've played with on IIS7 in Windows Vista and test them early on IIS7 in Windows Server Codename "Longhorn" Beta 3 today. Furthermore, for PHP developers, this is a great opportunity to check out the new FastCGI component that enables scalable PHP hosting on Windows."
good times :)

I personally try to attend every one of these and the UG lead Tori is really great! We had some great swag available: I gave away FIVE vouchers for free MS Exams and Tori gave away a ton of books and software. They are also planning to have regular speakers and other great UG activities.
Additionally, I am happy to announce that the Visual Studio Island in-world will be given to me in Sept and I intend to turn it into a great community area for everyone to enjoy. Lots of great stuff happening, come join us!
