24 Hours of Exchange Server 2007

It actually started last week, but here are the 24 x1 hour sessions.  A bit like the TV series I suppose, so that would make Harold Wong our version of Jack Bauer, but Harold is saving the world by spreading the love & adoption of Exchange 2007 ;-)

Also check out that these Webcasts have HOMEWORK!  All of them are at the same time 1930 – 2030 UK Time (will change as the clocks change) aka 1130– 1230 Pacific Time
