I’m headed to Austin, TX next week for DellWorld 2013, courtesy of Dell and the wonderful folks at DellTechCenter.com. Apparently I’ve been helpful and vocal enough about Dell servers, desktops and support on Twitter and other places that they are calling me an “influencer” again this year.
As part of that, I’m required to state that Dell flew me in to Austin for #DellWorld2013. And paid for my hotel. And my food. So, the things that I mention here over the next few days have been influenced by this, though I’ll try really hard to be honest and clear about everything I see.
10 years later, still following the crowd!
I spent a good portion of the last week planning for and then upgrading a test instance of Kronos Workforce Central v6.0 to v6.3. I thought I’d write down a good portion of what that entails.
5 years after this post and it’s time to go to the Lengthy Service Luncheon again.
Your presence is requested at a luncheon on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at Noon in the Student Dining & Residential Programs Building (SDRP).
15 years of service happened back in June. Another Wow.
It feels like my blog is turning into an anonymous support group for HP EVA customers, but yet another “so this gets into Google” (first, second) post.
Kind of hard to believe it, but the ESX 4 cluster mentioned back in 2010 has essentially been the same since it was put in, except for the addition of a third, slightly newer node. And the Test/Dev cluster has also been stagnant since late 2008. But, the times they are a changing.
After 9+ years, I figured it was time to change the look.
The current header image is part of a shot I took at Mammoth Cave last fall. I’ll probably add some other header images, maybe with some more techie content eventually.
Another “so this gets into google” post about HP Remote Support, like the last one.
The installer for HP RSS v5.70 (and I assume previous versions) has an included SSL certificate that expires on 12/29/2012, so when it tries to connect to the HP Support Center towards the end of the install, it fails.
(My ears are still ringing from the awesome Camp Freddy performance last night, this post may be a little confusing.)
The morning started with a nice buffett style breakfast, laid out a little better than I’ve seen at other conferences, on par with Microsoft TechEd. It’s a small thing, but executing well on serving thousands of people in a relatively small room makes a conference better than average. I’ll try to get a picture tomorrow morning to show what I mean.
