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.
Game over for Jack Tramiel, another real legend leaves us, and one that deserves tribute for his selfless dedication to what was really his hobby.
He was another industry changer. A true legend and a giant in terms of achievements. He left us with a very important legacy, one that underpins our industry. He also took Atari, which had bottomed out, and gave it life for another decade. His life story also makes for interesting reading.
Thanks for the C64 Jack ...
Maybe someday soon someone will put a book together covering all these often forgotten, industry legends. The people that made what those today build off of. We owe some much to them, we owe them more than a brief footnote on the web, their lives should be celebrated now so they know we appreciate them and what they have done.
