I'm Robert Marshall, director and principle consultant at SMSMarshall Ltd, who's specialism is in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager product and all of its dependent products, covering all aspects from Architecture, Implementation, Migration to Break-Fix.
I've been in front of computers for over 30 years now, with my roots in programming 8 bit computers, I've taken an often exciting journey which has led to becoming an expert in an enterprise product. I consider my career as starting 17 years ago, when I began my first serious role as a deployment engineer. I've seen 8 bit through to 64 bit, the rise and refinement of the interface we take for granted now, the rise of the Internet from land-line based modem access for the few, to the powerful broadband connections we have today for the masses, I saw mobile phones come into existence, and I've seen Microsoft evolve from more than a handful of employees to the company it is now, while pretty much tinkering with every OS they have released, as well as seeing an industry that has evolved around those humble beginnings to become what we have today. I'm a keen technical puzzle solver, I love to solve gnarly problems around my area of specialism. And, I love to share when I have time. I hope you enjoy the blog.
I've fallen out of the routine of announcing the patches each month, I felt that if it wasn't a notable release, well, then there is no reason to duplicate what a zillion other folk are happily duplicating, instead I assume you've signed up to the bulletin announcement mailing list and are getting these announcements straight from the horses mouth (Microsoft).

So, without much further ado, here comes August, a notable month indeed :-)
Looky here, 14 patches have been announced, but for some of us it is going to be 15 if we haven't already deployed the out of band release that was released at the tail end of July ...
