whither the sledge-o-matic?

so, the diva shot a missive over here to the funcave about some of ms’ technet webcast content doing the podcast thang.

now…it can’t ever be said by anyone that we here at the funcave are anything but supportive of useful content folks can take with them while they are on-the-go.

but…your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy has to say…

the mothership might want to be mighty selective about what webcast content gets rendered into an audio-only podcast format.

not too big a stretch of the imagination to see how some webcasts might be utterly and completely useless without the visuals they originally aired with.

kinda like…gallagher putting out a comedy album.

what, exactly, are you left with…if you can’t see the watermelons exploding all over the place?

holy wars…or, my firewall can beat up your firewall!

hasn’t everyone had just about enough of those?

i mean…can’t we all just say…

you know what?

you’ve placed your bet…

i’ve placed mine…

so let’s just get on long enough to see what comes up when the roulette wheel stops spinning.

how hard is that?

so now would somebody please tell that to the folks on the yahoo groups bickering like a bunch of schoolkids about isa, sbs, and each other’s mothers?

tonight’s muse

would be, of course, the diva herself.

in the space of of about 10 minutes over messenger, chatting with susan spawned over 5 different blog topics.

thanks for the inspiration, bitzie.

your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy will try to keep the cloak of +500 bluntness in the closet, but no promises…

sbs show…#17 and counting!

during sbs show #16, the vlad and your friendly neighborhood happyfunboy talk to jim locke, roger otterson, and “handy” andy goodman about the small & medium business technology network, also known as smbtn.

we discuss the nature and intent of smbtn, where smbtn fits in the sbs/smb ecosystem, and what smbtn can offer to its members.

for sbs show #17, the vlad and your friendly neighborhod happyfunboy bring on a well-known member of the sbs community, and a regular over at the m&m’s magical forest…the king of swing himself, jeff middleton.

jeff talks in depth about swing migration…where it came from, what it entails, how it differs from the migration methods published by the mothership, and where both swing migration and his company,, are headed in 2006.

one of the places they are headed will be the first-ever smb nation european conference, which is coming to amsterdam less than two months from now. besides jeff, the sbs show’s very own queenie, susanne dansey, will also be there.

of course, if you subscribed to the sbs show podcast…you’d already know all this, since you’d have received both shows automagically when they were released!

so…what is one free thing you could do…today…to make sure you never miss an sbs show?

that’s easy…

subscribe to sbs show!

unlike previous releases, this next ctp will be feature-complete.

which means we’ll finally get the first real look at vista.

so…for those of us not fortunate enough to spend 2 whole days at a windows vista bootcamp…

best get to prepping your vmware builds now.
