    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd post to say I've landed myself a new job, Excited isn't the word for it atm.

    I'm going to be a virty support/delivery engineer for a consultancy firm so I'll get hands on with vmware,veam,scale,emc,xenserver,xendesktop,hyper-v to name but a few. It'll be a great opportunity for me to keep up with the new trends in virtual stuff as now I've finished my virtualzation project at work I would have been going back to helping end users with day to day support.:sick

    Now all I have to do is hand in my notice but my boss is a little ... unpredictable shall we say so I shall wait until I leave work tonight before hitting send then hoping that garden leave starts tomorrow (probably not though)!!

    Nice one mate. Funny enough, I've considered applying for the odd VMware specific role lately but am a little scared of what work would say as I really don't want to burn any bridges. I'm a Wintel Engineer now so see plenty of VMware but I'd love a VMware Admin or SME type role.... see how I go. Hope your boss takes it well mate, onwards and upwards :)
