Don’t miss this great opportunity to find out more about WHS. WHS has created a lot of media attention and excitement within the IT Community. Graham Jones, President of VANTUG says that he would hate to be without WHS now if only for the automatic backup feature with redundant storage. It is projected that by 2012 4.5 million homes will have some form of home server and set to rise rapidly after that. The "Digital Home" is starting now. Come and see how and why WHS should be part of that.

Pizza and pop will be provided and there will be some great DRAW prizes including copies of WHS and wireless mice.
