Still not there

A while back, I said I was making progress on migrating this blog to Azure.  In case you care, I didn’t. I was really interested in doing so for a little while, but got busy on other things, and … lost interest.  I am interested again, so maybe this time I will make it. The… Continue reading Still not there

Strange Reboots

This isn’t going to be a terribly helpful post, but I do think it is interesting.  I have a server that is exhibiting some strange behavior.  When I copy a file to the server it reboots.  At first, I thought this was a specific file, but later determined that it didn’t matter what the file… Continue reading Strange Reboots

StorSimple Virtual Array

StorSimple Virtual Appliance

I have been interested in StorSimple for some time, but haven’t actually used it before.  Recently, Microsoft announced a virtual appliance preview.  It looks pretty interesting and I have a test scenario where I want to use it.  If my testing goes well, I may expand my use of it.  The documentation on it is… Continue reading StorSimple Virtual Appliance

2015 Blog Report

Well, I didn’t hit the number I was hoping to hit.  I made it to 162, and I was hoping to make it to 175.  Maybe by the end of 2016? Since this is a WordPress site and I use Jetpack here is a nice little report provided with no effort on my part: http://jetpack.me/annual-report/6842850/2015/
