FloridaOfficeGeeks.org back online and upcoming TOGA meetings

Earlier this week I mentioned that the FloridaOfficeGeeks.org site, the home for both the Tampa Office Geeks Association (TOGA) & the Jacksonville Office Geeks (JOG) [www.JacksonvilleOfficeGeeks.org] groups was down due to a bad WSS v3 Beta 2 -> Beta 2 TR update. Unfortunately the host wasn't backing up the sites (or they were but they failed... regardless...) and all our content was lost... doh! The site is back up and last night I rekeyed most of the content back into the JOG site (then promptly imported all the contents of all the lists into an Access 2007 database even though the host says backups are working again). In addition Ted Pattison, the leader of the TOGA group in Tampa, has posted the schedule for the next three meetings on the TOGA calendar... check out a killer lineup! Oct-16 - The Office Open XML File Formats by Ted Pattison Nov-20 - Branding Sites with Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Office SharePoint Server by Ted Pattison Dec-18 - Creating Business Solutions with Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) by David McNamee I hope I can make it down to tampa for one of the meetings before the end of the year!
