Full of I.T. Shark Week!: Chuck Norris and PowerShell Scripting
http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/inetpub/kevinremde/KROmniture.htm I received this question at a TechNet Event IT Camp in Minneapolis a few months ago… Can Chuck Norris write PowerShell scripts? Naturally. And only he can run his PowerShell scripts under MS-DOS 6.1. It’s a little know fact that, after codename “Monad”, rather than “PowerShell”, the name was originally going to be “NorrisShell”. … Continue reading Full of I.T. Shark Week!: Chuck Norris and PowerShell Scripting
And here’s a puzzler…
http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/inetpub/kevinremde/KROmniture.htmWhy is the “English” version of the Windows 8 download on TechNet is actually a little larger than the “English-United Kingdom” download? Is it because we Americans use longer words, or, like, inject other um stuff into like sentences and stuff? Do we require additional help documentation? Or are we denying some application or … Continue reading And here’s a puzzler…
It’s Friday: Time for a little bragging…
Today I took and passed the VMware VCP5 certification test. “Wait.. huh?! You got certified on VMware?” Yes, I did. I am now a VMware Certified Professional on vSphere 5.0. The powers-that-be realize, as I and my teammates do, that it’s important to be well-versed in what’s happening in the real world datacenters; especially if … Continue reading It’s Friday: Time for a little bragging…

Dear TechEd Diary – June 8, 2012
Sunday is the day! My flight leaves MSP in the morning, and by mid-afternoon I hope to be lounging by my hotel pool. That evening I’ll be attending the Krewe of TechEd opening part / Meet-n-Greet. It’s been fun watching Twitter (#msteched) and the traffic of people who are also excited. In fact, this year … Continue reading Dear TechEd Diary – June 8, 2012
My Favorite “Feature” (So many questions. So little time. Part 30)
For my 30th posting in this series, I thought I’d tackle a couple of really tough questions posed by John at our Columbus, Ohio TechNet Event: Well, John… this of course would require me to enter an opinion here on my blog. And I don’t think I’m allowed to give my opinion of Windows 8 … Continue reading My Favorite “Feature” (So many questions. So little time. Part 30)
Seasonal, Semi-Addictive, and Definitely Cloud-Worthy
Just for fun… Check out the game that the Microsoft UK Partner Network folks created. It’s a fun game (built with Silverlight and running in Windows Azure, of course), where you try and get Santa Claus bouncing higher and higher on the cloud. “Is that all?” Yep. It’s simple, but addictive. And it suits me … Continue reading Seasonal, Semi-Addictive, and Definitely Cloud-Worthy
