Here in the Wired Intel® Ethernet division we create or update around a 100 documents and technical collateral pieces a year.  We realize that finding and using these documents can be hard, so in a new feature of the blog, we'll be talking about the latest updates and why you would want to get the new copy.  Just subscribe to the RSS feed and it will tell you every time we make a new doc, or update an old one.  We will also include some quick notes on changes and updates to help you find the changes.  Some documents are going to be located inside of Intel's information security website, so if a link doesn't work for you, ask your Intel field representative, Extended Sales Force team member or your local distributor for help getting to that sensitive information.
