Live (Again) From Interop: Workshop A Success, But No Takers On Craps Lessons

The worst news from Interop is that my fat old body just can't handle the things I did easily 15 years ago when I made a living teaching 5-day NetWare administration seminars.

I, however, was a wreck at the end of the day. Even more disappointing, no one took me up on my offer of free

The worst news from Interop is that my fat old body just can't handle the things I did easily 15 years ago when I made a living teaching 5-day NetWare administration seminars. My Disaster Recovery Cookbook workshop went well, with 80 of my now-closest friends spending the day listening to me pontificate on the relative merits of Cemaphore Systems' MailShadow over Double-Take or WANsync. I, however, was a wreck at the end of the day. Even more disappointing, no one took me up on my offer of free craps lessons. The show seems to be recovering from a few years of dot-com bubble hangover, with bigger crowds of both vendors and attendees than I remember from the last two years.There are a smattering of storage-related vendors on the floor, which gives me something useful to blog about for the rest of the week. I even had fruitful conversations with several NAC vendors about solving the problems we at the college have since the untimely demise of Lockdown Networks earlier this year.
