Greetings from Barcelona! I’m here for VMworld and you can find me at the SolarWinds booth, at my session on Wednesday, or in the VM Village hanging out with other vExperts. If you are at the event, please stop by and say hello. I’d love to talk data with you.
As always, here are some links from the intertubz that I hope will hold your interest. Enjoy!

As if suffering a breach isn’t bad enough, Equifax is tricking people into waiving their right to sue. Like I said, you are affected. Don’t bother checking. Equifax needs to notify you in a timely manner.

Security should be free for everyone. Here's hoping Microsoft does the right thing and tries to protect everyone, always, for no additional cost. Too bad they didn’t help Equifax.
If the Equifax stories didn’t rattle you enough, here’s one about hackers controlling your electricity.
EVERYTHING IS AWFUL
Long, but worth the read. It’s a fascinating comparison between the American workforce 35 years ago and today.
