VMUG, VDM Challenge, vExpert, oh my ...

What have I been up to lately?

It has been a very busy summer so far. Besides my day job, very busy family life, and volunteer work, I’ve been actively engaged in the virtualization community; however, as a result, my blog posts have suffered. This is not simply an excuse, but an acknowledgement of my own limitations and a big kudos to all those who are able to continue posting regular updates in the #vCommunity despite external obligations. :)
