               FREMONT, CA — July 13, 2006 — Today, Unitek IT Education proudly announced it has won the Partner of the Year Award for Learning Solutions at the 2006 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Program Awards. Unitek received the award for the Sales and Marketing category. The company was chosen out of an international field of top Microsoft Partners as delivering market-leading customer solutions built on Microsoft technology. The awards were distributed at a ceremony on July 12 in Boston, MA, at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.

Unitek won a second, equally important award at the conference. CMP Media and CRN magazine chose Unitek as the CRN Sales and Marketing partner of the year. The CRN Best in Show awards highlight innovative solutions developed by channel partners that serve as a source of inspiration for the entire channel. These solutions leverage a keen understanding of specific customer needs with emerging technologies to create new solutions that expand market opportunities for the channel as a whole.

"Testing and Certification is the logical culmination of training that ensures that ROI is measured and delivered for the customer. It is heartening that Microsoft recognizes that Unitek has fully understood the customer's perspectives on training ROI and has created a world class certification training methodology", says Paul Afshar, CEO of Unitek (Paul is an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the year finalist). “I am also delighted that three industry vendors (CRN, Microsoft and Citrix Systems) have recognized Unitek as the best in the Americas, in a span of just six months.

“It is a privilege to recognize Unitek IT Education as a winner of this years’ Learning Solutions award in Sales and Marketing,” said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft. “It is this level of effectiveness in reaching out to our shared customers regarding the value of solutions built on Microsoft technology that enables continued success for us and for our Partners. We applaud Unitek for its achievements this year and offer gratitude for our ongoing collaboration through the Microsoft Partner Program.”

Hi. I honestly didn't know a thing about how to do it until the other
day, so I had to figure it out on the fly. On the plus side, that makes
it easy to explain for others. ;->

Go to the http://www.scruz.org/ front page, and login via the widget in
the lower left hand corner. (If you don't yet have a login, use the
"Create new account" feature.)

Upon login, you'll now be at http://smaug.got.net/welcome . Notice,
again in the lower left hand corner, a number of items where site
contents are classified that you can edit:


"blocks" is the catchall for a number of the ongoing items; they're "blocks" 
in the sense (I guess) of being mostly-fixed blocks of text. The first
item listed is "Upcoming Events". To the right of that and all the
other listed blocks are the controls for them

configure delete

"configure" really means "edit", so that's what you select. You get the
expected sort of editing window in your browser, and can use a limited
set of HTML tags (which are listed).

I hope the rest is easy to figure out; Jay's done a great job setting
the thing up. I'll be glad to help further if anyone has questions.
