VFP UG link updated

Thanks to Chuck for fixing up our User group bio on the Australian User groups page. Check it out here: http://www.microsoft.com/australia/msdn/localresources/usergroups.aspx

Web cast debrief

Well, a big well done and congratulations to Paul, Craig and Castro for their excellent presentations, and especially to Andrew for coordinating the event.
A few technical issues were experienced, but given we are pushing new ground this is to be expected. We'll have these sorted for next month. And speaking of next month, please join us to hear Andrew Coates speaking about VFP and MapPoint (he's the great speaker I was referring to in my question).
I'm here at Devcon getting ready to start some sessions in approx 4 hours time (yep, jet lag will do that for you) but I wouldn't have missed the online web cast for anything - a very exciting event. And let's hope it paves the way for other groups to use the technology - we were the guinea pigs on this one I guess (I knw web casts have been around for a while, but switching speakers and machines is not common).
Thanks again to everyone, especially for bearing with us for the few technical hitches, we'll see you again next month.
