Eric Hammersley <insert impressive list of technology to blog about here>
Cross-post from vmcoder.com ==== Virtual Strategy magazine contacted me a few weeks ago expressing an interest in my book, Professional VMware Server, and wanted to strike up an interview. Well, they just posted the podcast today and, in my humble opinion, it turned out great. While you're at it, setup Virtual-Strategy.com magazine in your reading list. ......

As some of you may have noticed from the post below my book is out and on the street. In response to that I've started a new site, vmcoder.com, to take the automation and scripting discussion a step further. Add it to you readers and join the discussion. The next version of VMware Workstation to carry automation support, finally. Over the next few days ......

Well, it was a busy summer. With events ranging from sporting events with the kids, mowing the lawn, and writing a book the summer just flew by. Book? Yes, I wrote a book. Around March of this year I was contacted by Wiley Publishing to write a title for their Wrox imprint on VMware Server. You know, VMware Server, the free virtualization package for ......

Ok, I’m not trying to dupe Slashdot here but it is some very interesting stuff. Google Maps has posted updated (August 31st) aerial photos of the New Orleans area post hurricane Katrina. The NOAA has also posted a set of very detailed aerial shots. I suggest you check out both sets but if you want some really detailed views of the damage spend ......

In the Reuters article this morning “White House faces new questions on Katrina relief” they discuss the much debated FEMA Debit Card program. This article suggests, or states I guess, that FEMA has suspended this program and will now issue the $2000 in emergency disaster relief by direct deposit or CHECKS SENT BY MAIL!?!?! Present day, ......

Ok, I’m reading the news about how everyone (I’ve only included one example but there are more) is questioning Under Secretary Michael Brown’s background and ability to lead FEMA. Apparently his biography posted on the FEMA web site is, well… skewed to look good. Now, I don’t want to get into a political battle here but ......

It has been almost a month since Hurricane Katrina and nearly as long since I posted the article, “Financial Assistance for Katrina Victims is… sent by mail?”. Since then I have received numerous responses to my article from displaced Katrina victims who are having all sorts of problems with FEMA and emergency assistance. I want to ......

A friend of mine pointed me to this today and I got a kick out of it. Having a bad day behind the keyboard? Watch this and realize it could be worse. :-) EDIT: It looks like Google Video killed this one. You can see it on YouTube here. Weird Al- White and Nerdy ......

NOTE: This is not in reference to Web Templates. In VS2005 Web Projects are created through a different menu item. If you here because you cannot find the web project templates make sure you select New... Web Site from the File menu. Twice I’ve installed Visual Studio 2005 (I use the Software Developer flavor, if that matters) and in the end I’ve ......

Yeah, I'm guilty. I tried VSS 2005. To be absolutely honestly I have stayed away from VSS for so many years because I had no interest in losing my projects to corruption. This fear led me to be a Sourcegear Vault user, which by the way is a very nice product. Never the less I figure VSS 2005 must be better than it's previous release, VSS 6, so I decided ......

I have some favorite features that I want to share. No, it's not the ribbon bar although it is pretty cool. The first is the addition of the Font Formatting menu to right click and select operation. Insert some text into Word 2007 and click and drag it to highlight. The closer you move the mouse to the top of the selection a Font Formatting tool will ......

Ok, so I found this by accident. You know on the status bar at the bottom of your Office application how you have sections for CAPS Lock, Insert, page count, etc.? Well, in Office 2007 you can customize what information you want to see in the status bar from a predefined list. It's pretty cool. Open Word, Excel, whatever (not Outlook) and right click ......

Seen this? Many have reported this error and others have drawn the correlation between the error and the size of your virtual HD. I’m going to bring the two together. Since we are talking about Beta bits there are several “issues” to work around in order to get a good install of Vista Beta 1 up and running. In previous posts you’ve ......

As most of you well know the Office 2007 Beta 2 has been release to the public. Honestly it is so stable I'm running it for everyday use. This has of course allowed me to uncover a few “issues” if you will. Being the diligent tester that I am I wanted to submit these bugs, or at the very least find out if they had already been discovered. ......

It's here. VMware Server RC1 is really shaping up to be a great release. It's late so I'll just paste in part of the announcement for the details. -- We are pleased to announce that VMware Server Release Candidate 1 is now available. You can download the new VMware Server Release Candidate 1 by following the link for “Existing Users” and ......
