I’ve just landed in Melbourne and am passing the time in the taxi by writing a blog post. I’m here for a week of training on exchange 2010. My first foray into serious Microsoft windows land.

Then sharpened its beak on the wire and swooped the next victim.

Understanding the landscape is incredibly important.
