My Review of 2018

By |2018-12-31T12:14:57+01:00December 31st, 2018|General|0 Comments

We all enjoy the festivities that the last month brings but it's also a time for reflection. One hopes that the coming year will bring more opportunities and happiness.

Review: Apogee MiC 96K

By |2017-07-31T21:31:15+01:00July 31st, 2017|General|0 Comments

You might know that I co-host the Open TechCast. Everyone on the show have "fancy mics" and I have my Jabra headset, which does the job but it's not great.  For that reason, I decided to get one too. Now, that much was easy but if you've ever tried looking for one, you'll know that [...]

A New Journey to the Cloud

By |2016-12-11T15:24:59+01:00April 26th, 2016|General|2 Comments

At the beginning of last year, I decided to become an independent contractor, so that I could be available for my parents whenever they needed me. That worked out quite well financially, allowing me to take time off when required. Being able to pick the kind of assignments I wanted also helped me enjoy them [...]

vExpert 2016: Thank You!

By |2016-12-11T15:25:00+01:00February 5th, 2016|General, VMware|2 Comments

Back in 2012, I joined Xtravirt. One of my colleagues was Darren Woollard (who works at Nutanix now). He knew that I had been blogging for a few years so while putting his vExpert application in, he asked me if I had ever applied for it. I didn't even know that mere mortals like me can become vExperts [...]

My wife was looking for a new phone and just before Christmas, I suggested her to go for a OnePlus One phone. At that time, they were offering the phone without the invite and promising delivery before Christmas. As luck would have it, by the time she made up her mind, it went back to [...]

A New Journey

By |2016-12-11T15:25:02+01:00January 12th, 2015|General|5 Comments

Today, I start my life as an independent/freelance consultant. This was one of the most difficult decisions of my life as I had to leave the best bunch of people to work with at Xtravirt. I know this is sudden and also came as a shock to many at Xtravirt but evaluating my priorities over [...]
