Surely you can't be serious. I am serious…Don't call me Shirley. – Ted Striker(Robery Hays) and Rumack(Leslie Nielsen) from Airplane – Classic!!!!
Guess what!?! The #vBrownBag crew, specifically Cody Bunch are doing something wicked awesome! SHOCKER! They do this week in and week out and I certainly recommend checking it out. Well it seems now we have a spin off off of the spin off sack lunches that have been dealing with OpenStack, this one called Couch to OpenStack! If you have any interest in OpenStack at all I would certainly check these out – I'll be attending live when I can but hey, if you can't make it they record the whole thing. Episode 1 is available here – Get IT!

So depressed! It's an interface I've used on a daily basis for quite some time now – and now, it's gone! The fact that I knew it was coming didn't help! Anyways, there goes my whole 'Sh!t I starred" section of my Friday Shorts now, since I'm not starring anything anymore. I'll continue to throw interesting links I've read/found, just will have to come up with a new title 🙂 RIP Google Reader!
Free VMworld passes!
Great contest going on at VMware with the Hands on Labs team. The contest – simply take a picture of yourself taking a hands on lab – in the most unique setting you can think of – now that's an easy contest to enter. All the details are here! I can't wait to see some of these pictures. And who knows, you may win! VMworld is epic and was a game changer for me back in 2011 when I attended for the first time!

- Kenneth Hui has an absolutely awesome blog series kicking of titled OpenStack compute for vSphere Admins. In part 1 he goes over the basic architecture of OpenStack and makes notes on how it works and doesn't work and where the integration points are within vSphere! This is a must read and I look forward to more coming from Kenneth's blog!
- In the lighter side of things the man from the ghetto William Lam has a pretty cool post about VMware's Acronyms. We all know there are a lot of them and William goes over how to pronounce them – even the ever so controversial vCAC 🙂
- More contests – PHD Virtual has a nice little contest going on right now where you could win a 1 year license of their backup software, just for simply downloading the bits! Get over there and check out what PHD Virtual has to offer!.
