In 2017 I was allowed not one but two slots at for vBrownBag at VMworld 2017 which was a big deal to me. The first of these was a solo presentation by me about how to be an active member of the vCommunity while living in a rural area without easy access to things like VMUGs and such.
This was actually my first public speaking presentation ever. Supposed to be a 15 minute time slot I believe I finished in under 8 minutes. What aided to my discomfort was that the whole purpose of this was to show a method I was using to backup physical servers in a Veeam world, something there was no answer to at the time. That morning it leaked that Veeam was announcing what is now known as Veeam Agent for Windows and my friend Rick Vanover was following me on the same stage to announce it. Talk about your topic becoming irrelevant in record time…

This site was created for the purpose of being a locker full of all the handy things I’ve learned over the years, know I’m going to need again and know I’ll forget. It’s morphed a bit over the years as all things do but still that’s the main purpose. If you’d like to know more about me check out any of the social links at the top left of the site, I’m pretty much an open book.
