Webcast on Thursday

This Thursday Greg Linwood is presenting at AdSSUG. He's going to be talking about indexes, which should be pretty interesting. So far there are 25 people registered, so it should be a good day.

Even more interesting is that it's looking like we're going to WebCast it. I was talking to Chuck Sterling on Friday, and it seems like it's all quite doable. So even if you can't come along, you can still watch it! It's the session he was going to do at TechEd 2005 (before he got sick) so if you were there, and still want to hear what he has to say on it, then tune in! I'll try to post some information about it before Thursday, when I find out where the link will be, etc...
