David Overton's Blog and Discussion Site
This site is my way to share my views and general business and IT information with you about Microsoft, IT solutions for ISVs, technologists and businesses, large and small.  
If you want to see what Vista, Media Center, Xbox 360, Movie Maker, Home Server and more can do when you use Vista, then go to this event in Manchester, Newcastle, Falkirk and London.

This was only 2 or 3 times overbooked last time it ran and had rave reviews.  Now there are another 4 events to choose from.  I found them at the Microsoft TechNet UK Events website. James and Matt will be hosting, so it is bound to be huge fun

Vista After Hours

You may be familiar with Windows Vista at work – whether you have deployed it or are evaluating it – but have you ever thought about the possibilities of Vista outside work? This session, aimed at IT professionals, explores not only the built in elements of Vista (such as Search, Photo Gallery, Windows Movie Maker, and the Networking and Sharing Centre) but also how you can extend your Windows Vista Experience with Windows Media Centre, Xbox 360 and specific applications to open up a new world of gaming and home entertainment.

James Senior, Vista Technology Specialist, http://blogs.technet.com/james

Hello there! I’m James Senior and I work in Microsoft’s Technology Adoption Group whose sole purpose is to help our partners and customers understand and use our latest technology. As you would expect, Windows Vista features prominently in my work at the moment but my background in software development means I also spend some of my time involved in the world of Software as a Service (SaaS). Did I mention I also dabble in a bit of High Performance Computing?

In my spare time I enjoy playing Basketball and filling up my ½ terabyte Media Center with music and recorded TV.

Matt McSpirit, Vista Technology Specialist, http://blogs.technet.com/mattmcspirit

I joined Microsoft back in January 2006 as a Partner Technology Specialist, working primarily with our Virtualisation technologies. Since July of last year, my primary focus has been Windows Vista. Over recent months, I’ve worked with quite a number of our Partners, up and down the UK, enthusing and exciting them around the potential of Windows Vista and I’ve also had the chance to present to our Partners on Cinema screens across the country! Outside of the office, I’m keen on sports, being a big Man Utd fan, movies, and socialising with friends, and I also like to travel as much as possible! I also like the odd game on the Xbox 360!
