Well, after 11 weeks away from the office, I find myself back at work today. My surgery went well, as has my recovery, so today I find myself back at my home away from home.
While I was in recovery, I watched heaps of dvds, read a few good books, perused many rss feeds, watched way too much daytime television, followed the ups and downs of my footy team, enjoyed the music of Eurovison, saw a few blockbuster movies, and got time to go on adventures with my wife and kids.
Now, back to the reality of the job, and all the stuff we need to do for the upcoming months - we have medc, teched, pdc and a number of great products to launch.
Did you miss me??

I came back to my office after being away for a week, and found a few boxes of stuff waiting for me.
I opened one of the boxes and found it full of TabletPC Guys
Thanks to Lora and the Tablet PC team.
Now I need to come up with a criteria to give these little fellows away. Any suggestions???

past week, I've
been reading about the I-Mate K-Jam AKU2 update, and I have been itching to
the update to *MY*
Today, I had a meeting cancel on me, so I scored some bonus time, in which to
make it so!
grabbed the the new
ROM which includes AKU2 with
Direct Push E-mail from Club
i-mate and ran the update.
I am now running the updated
K-Jam and it feels so much better. It's snappier. The Direct Push E-mail
is really cool too.
Time now to go re-install
some of my favorite apps - Egress, Pocket Sudoku, King Sol and Voice

If you were to organise a meetup of the A-list bloggers in Australia, who
would you invite? And they can't be journalists who blog. That's a
I was posed this challenge last week. To be honest, I struggled to come up
with a decent list.
I'll share the list once it's finalised, but I'll let you into a little
secret - most of the folks are on my blogroll.

My first post for a very long time, as I have been recovering from surgery.
Today is the anniversary of when I started my career at Microsoft - 14 years!
As I said last year, I've been really lucky, as I have done lots of different things, been exposed to different parts of the business, and seen it from different parts of the world. I have been very fortunate to work with some amazing people within Microsoft, as well as some outstanding organisations & people outside of Microsoft.
Microsoft Canberra, working as a Systems Engineer
Microsoft Corp, @ Executive Briefing Center
Microsoft Corp, in the Advanced Technology Group, working on Interactive TV
Microsoft Australia, MSN Technical Director
Microsoft Region, Digital Media dude
Microsoft Australia, Developer & Platform Evangelism
