Late to the party

Greetings all ("all" meaning 0 people at this point since this is my first posting).  I figured it was time for me to join the party and get myself a blog.  This blog will be used primarily to talk about Microsoft's UC offerings (OCS, Exchange and CS "14"). 

A bit about myself:  I'm a consultant with a company called Buchanan Technologies in Mississauga, Ontario (just outside of Toronto).  I'm also a virtual Technology Specialist (vTS) for Microsoft for OCS 2007 R2.  I've been a consultant with Buchanan for 10 years now (yikes!) and have really gotten on board the whole unified communications bit, especially Microsoft's offerings.  I worked at Microsoft a long, long LONG time ago as a support tech, and am pretty sure they installed a chip in my skull during one of the awesome parties they had back then.  To give you an idea on how long ago I worked at MS, the first product I supported was MS-DOS 6.2!  I moved on to greener pastures shortly after Windows 95 hit the scene, but still look back with fondness at those carefree days.

Thankfully, I've progressed since then (at least I hope so!) and this blog will prove useful to you!

Cheers!
Ken
