CloudCred, sponsored by vmWare, is a way to compete for prizes as well as learn about Cloud Technology.
Today, boys and girls, we are going to learn how X-Box is the only Microsoft product worth learning.

It has been a busy year with a new job as well as learning a new technology. I have found a new way to play a game... earn points and prizes... and learn about Cloud Technology at the same time. I am refering to Cloud Cred. As they put it, "Cloud Cred is both a destination and a journey. It’s where your working knowledge of cloud computing is acknowledged, advanced and rewarded. And though Cloud Cred may be fun, it’s hardly a game. Each Cloud Cred task or challenge you complete helps to establish your cloud expertise, build your professional sphere of influence and provides you with access to the latest industry content."
It sure beats all of the time I have wasted playing games on Facebook and Google+.
I am a HUGE fan of Open Source. When I received an invitation to check out Zurmo I was immediately interested. First of all because someone thought enough of what I have done in the past to invite me to take a look at their product... and I have to say, second of all because someone is reading my stuff.... Thanks Ray.
I am in the process of doing a review of Zurmo, an Open Source CRM application. Although there is a demo site available there are some things that may be disabled (since it is a demo site). I decided to install Ubuntu 12.04 Server as a Virtual Box instance so I could install Zurmo and see it's full capabilities. This post is going to be filled with screenshots showing the installation process of Ubuntu Server.
It isn't often that I find an application so useful in my work that my efficiency would be greatly reduced without it. I rely heavily on my notes and I need to be able to organize and search my ramblings effectively. I have been using this application for several years in our business and whenever the need arose for a group of individuals to share information I recommended it. Now as I work in tech support I find it invaluable. The application I am referring to is called Feng Office.
It's all about change.... I'll take a look at technical items of interest and put in my "two cents worth".
