You can't do it from Add/Remove programs, you have to do it from SQL installer, Maintenance Tab.
Passive node uninstalls take about 5-10 minutes. The active node takes a while longer.
In the picture below, I went to the Maintenance tab and selected Remove node from a SQL Server Failover Cluster and hit ok button to launch.
Microsoft has published 157 great Power Point template examples and how to create cool effects to spice up our slide decks: http://blogs.msdn.com/inside_office_online/archive/2009/10/29/watch-ppt157-everything-in-this-video-is-a-powerpoint-template.aspx

Sometimes you wonder how your technical management ever got to be a manager or even a director without knowing the fundamentals of leading people who have emotions and are not like computers. Effective leadership can easily be seen in action, you just don't recognize it until you miss it.
I have always wanted to get into RC vehicles to wind off some workday stress and keep my daughter entertained. Recently I have purchased the Traxxas e-Stampede and an eflite helicopter. Nitroplanes.com has a ton of resources and if you look for the image below, you can find some really inexpensive (<$99) planes ready to fly and I can't see why anyone wouldn't want to have this much fun, so I put an ad on all the pages. Maybe I can get enough kick backs to fix my helicopter ;-)
