I too am going to Mix06! I'm excited to go to the conference and get some focused time to learn and evaluate the latest goodies from Redmond. But what I'm most excited about (no not that part where it's in Vegas, but yeah that's cool too), is networking with all of the other attendees and presenters at the conference.
Anyone going to Mix06 interested in hooking up while at the conference to talk "Hosting"? If so, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'd like to see if I can muster up enough people together to have an open discussion on Hosting using Microsoft products and technologies. So what do I mean by talking about "Hosting"? Here are some topics: Deploying a Windows web hosting environment, web hosting best practices discussion, Microsoft Provisioning System discussion, etc. There's really no agenda for this (yet), but for those of us in the Hosting industry going to the conference, I think this could be a great meeting of the minds.
See you there!
It appears that my article on “The History of Hosted Exchange” made PingZine! It’s now available in their latest publication!

BTW, this is the same issue when they announce HMC 3.5. My article didn’t cover that as the solution features weren’t formally announced at the time.
We’ve found a semi-serious issue in the installation of MPS in the Microsoft Solution for Hosted Messaging and Collaboration 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/solutions/hostedmessaging.mspx). This has been found at 2 customer sites thus far and I’m sure we’ll see this happen with more deployments.
