Well, its a new quarter and I feel a big obligation to post something to the blog. I cannot believe it has been three months since my last post. I have several irons in the fire, but on the work front, I am glad to report that the vSphere upgrade has been completed and we are performing the final stages of upgrading all our VMware tools, drivers and virtual hardware. This has been a several month long transition and I have several draft posts waiting to go out which were started as things came up during the upgrade. This project has kept me extremely busy, much to the detriment of the blog. But the project has also provided a lot of good information which I want to pass along.
On a personal note, my wife and I are in the final stages of planning our new home, which we hope to begin building in the coming months. Any free time that I would have had to blog about my experiences has been consumed with house plans, builder meetings and other items to prepare for this major undertaking. My wife is attempting to chronicle our build on her blog, My Green Glasses. The house will be a certified green home, Energy Star certified and *possibly* LEED certified. We know that we will be close to meeting requirements for a LEED certification and we are looking at what additional things need to be done to make it happen and whether it is worth it or not.
