Today was travel day for our mini summit at the MacBU and the day long travel (mostly waiting at the airports) ended with a 7:00 p.m. dinner of 10 at a local restaurant called Matt's in Redmond Town Center.

A visitor to the Microsoft Entourage newsgroup made this comment about Entourage:

Standing in the men's restroom at work making small talk with our CEO. That's what guys do.

He asked me how things were going and I said, "It's Thursday!" After he chuckled a bit I said I couldn't wait until next week when I'll be attending a mini Mac MVP summit hosted by the MacBU at Microsoft. I explained that I'm getting to speak with the developers about the next version of Office for Macintosh.

I've spent more time at Global Deaf Connection (GDC) here in Minneapolis, volunteering a couple of hours per week. Joel Runnels is the new interim CEO and for the first time in a couple of years I feel someone is really putting effort into the organization. Now, I'm contemplating staying with GDC as a volunteer.

Just published my first blog post to the Entourage Help Blog with Ecto. It went flawlessly for me.

Since downloading Ecto last week and connecting it to my blog sites I've hardly spent any time to learn it but using it was a breeze. Kudos to the developers!

Just last night posted Use AppleScript to read ActiveSync Sent Items in Entourage on the Entourage Help Blog.
