VMworld 2008

Sunday, Andrew and I depart for five days of geekin it up goodness.  We will try and post updates through the conference.  I figure we’re going to take notes anyways what’s the difference?  If you want to follow us on twitter we’re http://twitter.com/glnsize, and http://twitter.com/acsulli.

I plan on spending most of my time talking to fellow admins.  I need to gauge what we’re doing in respect to the industry… After the small talk, you’ll probably find me in anything that has the words; PowerShell, Tech Preview, NetApp, Cisco, Exchange, or Active Directory… oh and Beer!
