Ad Nauseam - ramblings of a technologist

I've been with Microsoft, as a technologist, for over 10 years. Occasionally, I stumble across a nugget that I think others will find interesting. I put those nuggets here.

I occasionally come across things that I think "wow, I need to blog that," but I generally forget about them, or decide that they don't really warrant a post all on their own.  Rather than just cast them aside, I'll start occasionally rounding them up in posts like this one...

Neil came in to my office again with a camera, and this time we talked about how to set up a failover cluster.  I've written up a cookbook that takes you through building the environment that I used to record the screencasts on WDS, iSCSI and failover clustering of hyper-v.  It's not super deep or overly technical, just the basic steps to get the pieces configured.  Let me know if it's something you'd like to take a look at.

I had lunch last week with Martijn, who happened to be in town meeting with some other teams.  We talked a lot about the cross section of people who blur the line between IT Pros and Developers.  Now that we're giving PowerShell to IT Pros, they start looking more like Developers, and there are plenty of Developers that get pushed in to IT Pro roles as well.  Martijn has some good insights in to those people and I really appreciated meeting with him.  Thanks Daniel, for putting us in touch.

I wasn't planning on attending Mix this year, but I might try and arrange a trip just to see Steve Wiebe reclaim his record.  I'm pulling for Steve to win this one, even though I have a Billy Mitchell autographed bottle of Rickey's Hot Sauce:

I made a trip to the doctor's office a couple weeks ago to get something for a nagging chest cold I was dealing with.  I know there's a running joke about old magazines in doctor's waiting rooms, but this one must take the cake:  a 1987 issue of National Geographic:

It contained a fascinating article about this new technology called MRI.  I wonder if it will take off.
