I saw a tweet on the #SQLHelp hotline last night from Mike Talon ( blog | twitter ) asking “Is there an #Exchange version of #SQLHelp?”
My immediate reaction was: Wow!! What a compliment to the #SQLPASS community that other communities want to help each other like we do! [Insert Giant Community Pat-On-The-Back]
I know less than nothing about Exchange. I’m pretty sure that it runs on Windows and I of course know that you can manage with PowerShell 😉 Oh, and my Outlook doesn’t work if it can’t connect to Exchange; and that’s pretty much it. So in the spirit of #SQLHelp I had to lend what hand I could, and that’s only in naming. The key is to be short and recognizable.
- #EXCHelp Can’t do it because people could mistake the hash for Excel.
- #EXCHHelp Was my suggestion because it’s short and hopefully recognizable to them.
- #EXCHGHelp Was Mike’s idea, he said that EXCHG was a common way of referencing Exchange.
I really have no idea what’s going to be a success for them here but I wish them the best of luck in getting the word out on whichever hashtag they settle on.
