New Book – Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Administration Instant Reference

Huge Congratulations to my friend, Matt Hester.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Administration Instant Reference

Matt is a one of the folks that taught me how to blog, so that I could use social networking to convey my passion for technology products.  He also happens to be an IT Pro Evangelist for Microsoft, meaning that he spends most days speaking at local events events with customers and partners, and blogs/podcasts about every cool technology that he can get his hands on.   It is the second coolest job at Microsoft behind Technical Product Manager.  <grin>
