    Be sure to keep your peepers peeled for Microsoft PFE Shane Craemer's public release of "Vital Signs".  If you don't know PerfMon, he'll teach you all you want to know.  If you think you already know PerfMon, I invite you to come with an open mind–he's bound to stuff it full of great information.
