Virtualization Africa: T minus 5 days

Where are we today?

  • Working on the Green Grid talk/presentation. Here's a look at what I am working on, not done yet but will be done tomorrow. It seemed like a neat template to me ;-)
  • Got my vaccinations.
  • Got some more advice from my friends on personal and professional matters.
I did have a long discussion with my wife on the usefulness (or uselessness) of talking about Green Grid, environmental responsibility and other stuff. I think people all over the world are just the same. They just happen to care about other things. I firmly believe that when it comes to saving our planet (I know, I should have said "Environment" , but then nobody would "care"), then it will be very hard to ignore.

Anyways we will continue with our struggle and somewhere along the road, I hope, we will look back and say: " I am glad we all did it together, we hosted our data center together, we shared our electricity bills and we came out winners together"
