I was finishing Windows 7 M3 (the build which eventually was delivered at the PDC). During M3, I spent most of my time working on the “Ducking” feature. I was working on my PDC presentation, although the slides I had in August bore almost no resemblance to the slides I eventually presented (I started with 50 some slides and ended up with 23).
At home, I’d replaced all our 100 megabit switches with new gigabit Ethernet switches to boost performance (I was bored one weekend when Valorie and the kids were out of town). Daniel was attending the pre-college program at Carnegie-Mellon University, and came back at the end of the week.
And long time readers of my blog know where this particular series is going :).
