The Richard & Lee Show

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

My pal, Richard Garsthagen and Lee Dilworth – have put together a funky video about SRM for those who are unfamiliar with it. I’ve been down to Frimley (VMware’s location in UK) and spent sometime with Lee. He was really helpful in answering my questions.

SRM DB Sizing Tool

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

OK, I have a rather purile sense of humour but this made me snigger. It’s all about certain ISP providers blocking offence words in email addresses, even if your name is entirely innocent.

Parallels slices and dices OS X with Server for Mac – VMware in the rear?

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

Mac Virtualization is not something I really know that much about. Although this year when it came to buying a new laptop I did pause for a moment to consider getting a Mac with VMware Fusion.
