Welcome Tony McIntyre to the blogging community!
Tony McIntyre from my old team has started blogging!!!!
Check out his first post titled SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Crawl performance Part 1.
This is a great article to hook on while also checking out my article Understanding SharePoint - Part 1 - Understanding the SharePoint Portal Server Indexer. Tony has also done a ton of work on debugging iFilter issues, and has a wealth of information to bring to the table, so everyone give him a warm welcome!
I remember the days (I mean nights) of deep night CritSit phone hand offs with one another. (And sorry buddy, I don't miss them one darn bit :))
