April’s Action Pack drop has just about the most new stuff I’ve ever seen from the mothership in any AP release.
Check this out…
Dynamics CRM 4.0 (all 3 of its users will be so happy)
Exchange Server 2007 Standard SP1
Accounting Professional 2008 (U.S. only. Everyone else can start their whining now)
System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 64–bit
Virtual Server 2005 R2 Standard SP1
Server 2008 Standard (32–bit and 64–bit)
Vista Ultimate with SP1 (Woohoo! Don’t spend that single copy all in one place!)
Terminal Server 2008 CALs
I know what I’ll be busy doing here at the Funcave when all this finally arrives. Rolling the server up to Server 2008 and making the move to Hyper-V.
Nothing like the sweet sweet candy that is a completely virtual environment.

And here I thought I had found the answer to my More Mobile Than Mobile quandary…namely, the problem of carrying all the associated stuff.
Big ups to Engadget for finding this. I think.

During his talk at MVP Summit last week, after he stressed the importance of communication and responsiveness from Microsoft employees to their customers…
You think I was gonna pass up the chance to send Steve Ballmer an e-mail?
Heck, I typed it on my trusty Treo 750 and fired it off before he had even left the stage.
Yes, I tried to make it relevant. Yes, it was constructive…altho blunt. Yes, it was in earnest.
And yes, I did get a response. Not 1, but 2 whole sentences.
People tell me…that’s a big deal.
In the immortal words of Carl Spackler…
So, I got that going for me. Which is nice.

Don’t ask me how Elisabeth Vanderveldt’s name keeps getting picked up by celebrity gossip aggregators.
I’m thinking Nick & I were darn lucky that neither of us had to punch out any stalkerazzi at MVP Summit.
Oh well…there’s always next year for socking some scumbags!

And when talking about marketing debacles from Redmond…
Being the worst is actually an accomplishment, of sorts.
