SCCM SP1 Download is live now!

Sometime around 8:30-8:45PM Eastern Time, the SP1 update for SCCM went live on the Microsoft Download Center. Here is the direct link to the download. (See Update #2 below) As I type this I am 49% done with the download. You know that that means? I get to install it tomorrow morning!

[Update: 9:10PM…my download finished!]

[Update #2: Note that the download link above is to the Upgrade version. You need to have a fully functioning SCCM RTM site to use it. There is also a slipstreamed eval version. Had I thought for half a second last night I would have known that they wouldn’t put a fully licensed (with embedded product key) download on the public site. And since I didn’t download the correct version last night, I’m stuck downloading in the middle of the day along with everyone else…I need the slipstreamed version to install on Server 2008. Last night it downloaded in 20 minutes or so. I’ve been downloading for an hour so far…with an estimated two hours more to go.]

SCCM SP1 Released!

Just got alerted that SP1 for SCCM has been signed off on and should hit the download center soon!

[Note: this post was much shorter than planned. I was sitting in the exam room at my wife’s OB when I got the email alert. I was blogging it from my phone when the doctor walked in. Had to finish up quickly!]

Sobering start to the day

Got a text message from Tim first thing this morning asking me if I had heard about Steven Curtis Chapman‘s five year old daughter. Yesterday afternoon Maria Sue Chapman died after being hit by an SUV in the driveway of their home. She was Steven and Mary Beth’s youngest daughter and one of their three adopted daughters. The news report that Tim heard said that one of Steven’s sons was driving the vehicle.

I can’t even begin to imagine what their family is going through right now, but I know they need for us to be praying for them today.

What has made this all the more sobering is that Maria was five years old. My youngest daughter is five. Her name is Marybeth. When Julie was pregnant with Marybeth, she had been reading a book by SCC and had come to really appreciate the honesty and transparency of both SCC and Mary Beth Chapman. As we were thinking of names for her, we kept coming back to Marybeth. Not that she is named after Mary Beth Chapman, but her name was influenced by MBC. All the more sobering.
