CoSSUG Website is live…
As part of taking part in starting up a new SharePoint User Group I finally was able to get the site up and running. Funny and ironic as it might seem Shannon and I decided to go with the "eat your own dog food" approach and create the site with WSS 3.0. Furthermore our efforts were also expedited by using the Community Kit for SharePoint's User Group site template. Now don't just assume that since it is up that it will not change. There will be quite a few additions to the site in the coming days ......

MCPD Enterprise….. Finally!
Finally I was able to button up my MCPD Enterprise. I have been sitting around with the need to take that one last exam and get everything all buttoned up, but with the amount of work I have been doing over the last year or so it has been virtually impossible to get my certification taken care of. As luck would have it I have run in to a quiet period between contracts and was able to on a whim go to a testing center and get the test over with.

J There is a new community coming to town and it already has started to take on a life of its own. Shannon Bray and I have decided to start up a User Group on Colorado Springs.

Rainy day in Denver
So what do you do on a rainy day in Denver? Well, if you are me you will catch up on some blogging and get some other delinquent tasks. I know that I have been hiding under a rock but there has been so much going on. I just finished up a project for a client and next week I am teaching a WSS 3.0 deep dive course at AmeriTeach. Also it looks like I get to catch up on some much needed relaxation. From a previous post Chris Givens, the author of the Advanced SharePoint Developer course, sent me a copy ......
