  1. For those of you who don’t have to get back to work after the WI-VMUG meeting next Thursday, the next Wisconsin Tech OnTap Live NetApp User Group Meeting is being held on March 4th as well.

    It is from 3:00-6:00pm in Delafield. You can register at: http://bit.ly/bdcAkt

    Here is some more info from the email invite I received:

    We’re excited to bring you the latest segment in the continuing series of NetApp’s quarterly Wisconsin Tech OnTap live user group meeting.

    This quarter’s featured topic includes working with the latest release of Operations Manager featuring Performance Advisor and Protection Manager, discussing provisioning best practices, and OnTap 8.0 7Mode.

    Come exchange ideas with other local NetApp users and talk with specialists from NetApp.

    Hot discussion topics include:
    — Advanced Alerting, Monitoring, Reporting (Ops Mgr 4.0)
    — Enhanced Provisioning Best Practices
    — Intro to Larger (64bit) Aggregates
    — Drawing for a $100 gift card!!

    We hope you’ll join us for some food and libations while you socialize with your peers and learn from the experts during this informative knowledge exchange.

  2. 148 registered as of this afternoon, still room for more of you.

    I have some additional giveaways on the way and will post information on them as soon as I know they will be here in time for this meeting.

  3. 160 registered as of 5pm today (Monday). I have room for more if you have not yet registered be sure to do so and I’ll see you Thursday.

  4. 170 on the final official registration sheet from VMware. My throat/voice is shot so Mike Nelson may be taking over as MC of tomorrow’s event. Regardless I am looking forward to another great meeting.
