Once again I have to thank the folks who are supporting my blog. There are so many kind people out there.
Thank you to the folks at Altaro who have been great supporters of the Hyper- V community and for sponsoring my blog.
I also need to thank the people at Veeam who have recently joined my blog as a sponsor and who are also a virtualisation community supporter.
It has been amazing to see how many of you are buying things via my Amazon links. You’ve kept me stocked with e-books (legally too!) and this week I had a nice new walkabout camera bag for my big lens and some fast SD storage delivered to my hotel. My bruised shoulder where I’ve carried my tripod lens thanks you!
This blog would be much lesser without the help of friends, MVP colleagues, and the folks in Microsoft who continue to help me.
I’ve been lucky enough to be quoted and linked by many people, so thank you for sending your readers to me. The last 12 months saw another big increase in readers and it is much appreciated.
And thank you to those who read my blog, despite those occasions when I break down and erupt into a rant of some kind Every now and then, an email or comment comes in with a nice message and that can turn a crappy day into a good one.
Coming to an event and having people say nice things … honestly … I’m amazed. I hope I’m not appearing like a jerk … I’m amazed that someone from the USA wants a photo with me, that someone far away in Malaysia is reading my blog, or that someone in South America is reading a book that I’ve written. Quite honestly, I’m surprised every time someone looks at my name tag and says “are you … ?”. When I started this blog way-back-when, I did a happy dance when I hit 100 page views in a day. I’m just a short-fat-bald dude from soggy Ireland who rants every now and then, and I really appreciate the support you’ve given and hope that I’ve been able to share something of use for you.
