Lately I’ve been busy learning Office 2007. So far I’ve finished Excel and I am now half way through Word 2007. Currently I am planning to finish PowerPoint, Publisher and Outlook before Christmas.
I am learning these things for two reasons: 1st: we can’t get away from Microsoft Office…its everywhere!

I have to say this is the first time I’ve ever done any planning for my trips I’ve always thought it will take a long time to plan for a trip, and its impossible to do it within a day or two, but this time I’ve proven that planning could be a lot easier with the help of technologies like the online maps and of course, emails and websites
Chaks and I will be going down to Christchurch on 2nd of Nov to take part in the NZ Dot Net User Group‘s Boot Camp. One of the best thing about this Boot Camp is that a lot of people from the industry and even Microsoft are coming to give us a presentation on the latest Microsoft Technologies…and best of all, the event itself is FREE!
