Just to let you know. The Portland (Oregon) SQL Server User Group has invited me to speak at the meeting on Thursday, Jan 24 at 6:30pm. I’ll be speaking on SQL Server service accounts, entitled “Who’s running my SQL Server services?”. I’ll be covering the evolution of service account choices and management in later versions of SQL Server and address how to manage these accounts and exactly what they control.

Full description of the talk and directions to the meeting are at the group’s website: http://pdxssug.com/. Hope to see you there!
