vSphere 4

2 days into the beta of the new vSphere 4 Fast Track course and I'm shattered. I did the equivalent course (the first in EMEA) 2 1/2 years ago (or so), and that was tough enough.

This afternoon was not helped by the failed install of VMware tools in a guest OS that caused cloning to intermittently fail. Still - good diagnostics testing.

Book 1 is finished, and a couple more 10 1/2 hour days to go, and I'll be done. Thank goodness it's bank holiday this weekend!!

When the showers stop, it's lovely!

Back in Scotland...

Same company, different subsidiary. This time day 1 despite starting awfully slowly finished on target.

Finish on time, time to explore !

Back to 70's on Capital Radio

Listening to Kenny Everett from BBC7 this morning. Don't you think he would have loved Scissor Sisters and Mika?!

Today's had a mad Michael Aspel "coming soon" trailer. Apparently Michael is nearly 6' 8" and has a voice like honeeeyyyyy. :-)

National DNA database - let the misrepresentations continue

Today's Sunday Telegraph in the UK. Simon Reed - a spokesman for the Police Federation unwittingly makes clear his prejuced views on the database.

"Some of those unconvicted people will reoffend with serious offences."

Simon, just how can an unconvicted person REoffend? Even if some of them (as you go on to imply) go unconvicted because of witness knobbling; it is still wholly wrong to act as if all people who are found innocent should have been found guilty but for some failure in the criminal justice system. Or is he trying to say that the police never make a mistake.
