First post

Well, this is my first attempt to have a purely technical blog.  I will cease putting technical content on my other blog at

If you read the 'About' you will see the purpose of my blog.  I work in the Microsoft Managed Services (MMS) division as a SharePoint engineer.  Our group not only manages the SharePoint infrastructure for the Microsoft Corp., but for external customers as well.  When I say 'manage', I do not mean 'support', that is a different group.  For example, the internal group at Microsoft called FinWeb is using our group to architect their infrastructue.  We also host external customers' infrastructures like ENERGIZER.

We do a LOT of architecture and engineering....a LOT.  And so we see a lot of different designs and have accumlated a ton of best practices in the process.  I'd like to share of that with readers.
