Slight blog upgrade, better speeds, etc

Date June 6, 2014

This blog's web server has been up and down a lot in the past few days. The performance has never been amazing, but it's always been at least passable (unless I'm getting slammed by traffic, of course). But I finally gave up and dug into what was causing the habitual slowness. Running iostat on the […]

#SREcon14, #SpiceWorld in Austin, and #LISA14

Date May 27, 2014

Well, several trends have continued since my last post a month ago, most of which revolve around conferences. Also, you know it's bad when your blog article headline includes three hashtags.

I wanted to let you know about Enterprise Networking's Top Networking Experts You Need To Follow - they included 9 really amazing networking bloggers...and me!
