On this day, three years ago…

On this day, three years ago, I posted my first entry on Tech Talk.  At the time, the idea was to try to contribute back to a community of technical resources whose blogs had contributed so much knowledge to me.  I had found their blog posts about VMware ESX and vCenter invaluable and the information […]
