  • Traveling and eating alone–don’t do it!

    I tried something last night– I was getting hungry and starting to dread finding someplace to get takeout.

That idea was around getting the soup to nuts details on the Hyper-V / SCVMM / iSCSI solution into an entertaining session that could be delivered in person, online or by a group of individuals across Canada. Well – it’s ready. With the help of Mitch Garvis from SWMI consulting group, David Kawula from TriconTS, myself and more to come...
