On Wednesday, I headed up north to help out at the Minneapolis Vista Launch key city event (KCE).  One of my tasks was to help people by answering questions, showing them demos at the "Vista Trial Area."  Surprisingly, I was also able to answer a couple of development related questions in regards to WPF, Gadgets and running Visual Studio on Vista.

Another nice thing about the event is that I got to talk and hang out with Jeff, Mike and Farhan.  Also, I made a new MVP friend with Bill Smith (Windows 2003 MVP and a Mac guy!!).  The cool thing about the launch is that Tom Castellano, a Office Groove Specialist, gave Bill and I a pretty good lap-around of all the features and functionally that Groove has to offer.  I was pretty pschyed about the product and can't wait to start using it at home.
