About 170 students Are here at the event, which showcases Microsoft technologies and explain how they can be used. All sorts of cool information about Windows Vista, Live.com services, .Net technologies, etc. While here I will be showing some Windows Mobile devices, including Pocket PCs, portable media center and other mobile technologies.
At the end of the event there's an "Ask the Industry" time, so students can ask experts about IT, technologies in general and work at Microsoft and other companies.
I was actually planning to finish some development tasks here at Geekzone, but since the local power company decided that today was a good day for an outage, I had to get out of the house. Off came the desktop, the Exchange server and other appliances.
Since my Exchange server is down today (from 8am through 4pm) I will have an e-mail free day. Yay! People still can catch me on Windows Live Messenger though, because from time to time I use my Pocket PC to login and check how things are going.
Also, very convenient to have the Sierra Wireless card on loan, I can connect to Vodafone's HSDPA network, and since it's not officially launched I can enjoy almost full speed - for now. Let's see how this network performs in the next couple of months with the number of users joining the service.
At the moment it keeps bouncing from HSDPA to WCDMA to GPRS, which is due to low coverage in this area (and because I am indoors, and we all know how bad WCDMA 2100 MHz can be indoors).
