Winner, winner, chicken dinner

I WON!  If you haven’t heard, I won the big prize for the Scripting Games this year.  First place landed me a ticket to TechEd North America! I had a hell of a time getting the time off work, and getting my travel authorized, but it all worked out… Below is my agenda for the conference, feel free to contact me via twitter… with the short lead time I have Nothing scheduled (Feels kind of weird to just be going to a show…)

I should be near anything that says PowerShell in between sessions.
