I'm Rob Marshall, a consultant who specialises in the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager product. I like to share, i do so by blogging and helping out when I can in the MS SMS newsgroups and participating in the ConfigMgr MVP program.
I was awarded and joined the program in 2009. It'd be an understatement to say it has to be one of the best experiences an IT engineer can have, if they really enjoy specialising in a product.
My biggest weapon for troubleshooting is, my formidable knowledge, no, only joking, you, the community. I find if I cannot answer a question, then I can usually find the answer from using Bing\Google, pouring over the documentation, and if that doesn't work, tinkering in mine or someone elses virtual lab.
The blogs pretty much about ConfigMgr, but it is also a platform for me to express my random urges to display something I've stumbled across, and that I imagine would entertain you or what not as equally as it did me.
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 ...
