    You guys are doing a great job, but I gotta ask: why does every Microsoft speaker say "Let's go ahead and..." at the start of EVERY sentence? Is is some kind of corporate policy? A side effect from the implant?

    Please continue the screencasts, they are excellent... but please cut down on the going ahead...

    Yeah, what is UP with that? Cut it out.  I think it was Scott Guthrie (who I continue to learn a LOT  from) who started the trend.  It's even worse than "At the end of the day...." Wink

    I have to admit that the "Let's go ahead and..." is particularly annoying.  Kudo's for keeping the "uhm, uhh, err" quotient down but really, can you perhaps sub in a few "at this point I'm going to...", "this area here details..." or even a "when you click here..." would be good.  Mix it up a little.  If God didn't want us to use all the words he wouldn't have given us such a big dictionary.
