I'm trying to spend a bit more time reading and replying to emails each Friday afternoon. As a result I'm a bit late with this blog entry (and a few others...). Sure, we had another busy week at MSPmentor, The VAR Guy and TalkinCloud. We realize: Some readers don't have time to track all the conversations across all of our web sites each week.
