I am a very technical minded person, born in 1985 and ever since I got my first gaming console I was hooked onto computers. I finally made a job from my hobby and have done quite some studying throughout the years, either by school or by selfstudy. Currently my main focus is virtualization (mostly VMware) and server automation.

I am also a VMware Certified Professional (VCP410 and VCP510), Cisco Certified Network Administrator (CCNA) and I have achieved LPIC-1 and LPIC-2.

  1. Hello!

    I beg your pardon me if I’m distracting you. I’m representing Veeam Software company (www.veeam.com) and first of all I’d like to thank you for paying attention to our products. And also wondering if there is a possibility to update the link in this articles http://foonet.be/2012/03/09/monitoring-veeam-flr-sessions-using-powercli/ ? The most appropriate page is http://www.veeam.com/vm-backup-recovery-replication-software.html (about our product Veeam Backup and Replication)
    I will be grateful, if it is possible to make such changes.

    Best regards,
    Tatiana Beloys

  2. Hi Neils,

    My name is Ashish Bhanushali and I am an Author Relationship Executive for Packt Publishing, a company specializing in technical books.

    We are currently looking out for prospective authors to write our 100-120 page book VMware Workstation : No Experience Necessary which would help the reader get started with Workstation, and show them how to create VMs and then manage and network VMs to create a system that is more than the sum of its parts.

    This book is aimed at developers, small and medium sized businesses looking for the “On-ramp” to the cloud

    Given your expertise in the technology, I was wondering if you would be interested in authoring this Mini title.

    Packt offers an industry leading royalty rate of 16% and an advance amount of 600$ against royalties as well.
    The advance amount will be paid at the time of publishing.

    Let me know your views on this.
