I'm Rob Marshall, a consultant who specialises in the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager product. I like to share, i do so by blogging and helping out when I can in the MS SMS newsgroups and participating in the ConfigMgr MVP program.
I was awarded and joined the program in 2009. It'd be an understatement to say it has to be one of the best experiences an IT engineer can have, if they really enjoy specialising in a product.
My biggest weapon for troubleshooting is, my formidable knowledge, no, only joking, you, the community. I find if I cannot answer a question, then I can usually find the answer from using Bing\Google, pouring over the documentation, and if that doesn't work, tinkering in mine or someone elses virtual lab.
The blogs pretty much about ConfigMgr, but it is also a platform for me to express my random urges to display something I've stumbled across, and that I imagine would entertain you or what not as equally as it did me.
Refreshed, and ready to roll, after a great one week wreck\reef live-aboard diving holiday in the Northern Red Sea (Egypt). Departed from Hurghada, and spent best part of 5 whole days just diving and diving and diving!
I used a company called Blue O Two, and was on one of their luxury vessels the Blue Melody. Great diving guides, Karen and Kevin (thanks!), friendly staff and a great cook (Tuts trot\The belly didn't manifest amongst any of us, good clean food!)
Afraid I did not buy an underwater camera, so no pictures from me. However the Dive club I use (Dive Wimbledon) will no doubt be propping pictures and videos from the others onboard (23 divers in total) on their website over the coming weeks.
If you've got a penchant for diving, perhaps done your PADI Open Water Diver, then i'd definately recommend either taking your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course while out on the Live-Aboard, or get skilled up before leaving with AOWD and then take the Wreck diving course while you're out there, then you can pretty much just focus entirely on getting in as much diving as possible, and not be tethered to an Instructor as your Buddy for the whole holiday. Awesome experience.
I'm currently one of the UK governments unemployed statistics, with plenty of time over the next week or two to churn out some content covering off ConfigMgr features. First to go will be a write-up on where I was just working ... so stay tuned
