I have created this blog to share with readers my thoughts on specific technology and related topics.  That’s overly-broad on purpose, as I hope to post about topics ranging from IT-related issues to gaming.  Of course, audience participation is encouraged.

I’m an independent IT consultant based in Austin, TX.  I do a wide variety of different things, ranging from IT architecture consulting to database and applications development.  I’m also a writer of books and online articles.  My technical focus is fairly broad, but it includes virtualization, Microsoft .NET, SQL Server, and the Windows Server platform.  For more information about me and for technical information, see my web site at  And, you can e-mail me at
