Been a while...
It's been 8 months since I last posted and I'm almost embarrassed to blog again - it's been so long! My blogging absence has been mainly due to lack of time, with "Time Management" being a subject I hope to post about soon.
Anyways, I am presenting at the Fort Worth .NET UG tomorrow on "Windows Server 2003 for Developers" and my laptop is running WinXP. It's kinda hard to present demo's on that subject when you don't have Win 2003 installed - Doh! So, I find my self sitting here after midnight installing Win 2003, via Virtual PC 2004, on my laptop.
I don't have any previous experience running a Virtual Machine, but so far the process has been painless. I do have 1 GB RAM on my laptop - so I shouldn't run into any problems with the VM hogging my system resources. Besides my upcoming presentation - I look forward to utilizing the VM to play with the latest Whidbey and Yukon bits without having to worry about them crashing my mission-critical applications running on my regular WinXP configuration.
Hopefully, I won't be up all night installing the apps I need for my demo's and that my first use of Virtual PC won't cause me any problems during my presentation.
Please stop by the FWDNUG if you are in the DFW area and introduce yourself - it's always nice to meet other bloggers.
