Acknowledgments

No book of this size or scope ever comes only from the authors’ hands. We are indebted to many people for their efforts to help us succeed.

From Microsoft Canada, Roger Benes played a crucial and very much appreciated role in helping to make critical connections for us. Plus he’s a good and valued friend.

Also from Microsoft Canada, we’re indebted to Mark Dikinson, who took that connection to the next step, and to Sasha Krsmanovic, Charlie’s super MVP Lead, for always being there when we really needed an answer.

Building and running the kind of hardware it takes to do a book like this is a challenge, even with the ability to virtualize. Hewlett-Packard Canada was extremely generous in lending us a wonderful, fully loaded ML350G5 server to use for this book. It’s a great server and we love it. We’re indebted to Gordon Pellose and Alan Rogers at HP Canada; SanSan Strozier of HP in the United States; Sharon Fernandez of Hill & Knowleton, HP’s public relations firm in Canada; and especially David Chin, also of Hill & Knowleton, for making the loan possible and being generous with their time and expertise.
