So, I’ve received a few (Read: a metric ton) of comments regarding if my eBook and Webservice is done yet.
In short: No.
In long: Yes, but no, well sort of.
So I had a lot of bad things that went down in my personal life. I was laid off, the wife and I separated, etc etc. So mentally I was able to devote as much time as I had hoped to this endeavor – though I do have a decent ground work laid for it.
But there’s another problem now.
Being unemployed for as long as I was, I had to sacrifice some things to get by. I had to sell the servers I used for my virtual SCOM infrastructure. So now I don’t really have a machine capable of running OpsMgr + all the additional VMs I need to setup all of the various environments to testing and deployments to.
Did you want to help? I’d love it if you could!
What I need right now to finish all of this:
A proper server. If anyone has one for sale, or to loan to me for awhile (1 year or so), I can get this whole thing back up and running.
I’m looking for something like a Dell Poweredge T610 – a dual processor capable machine with plenty of ram and disk. It doesn’t have to have the extra proc (Though that would be awesome) or be fully populated with ram and drives – but it would be helpful.
If you have one for sale or loan, and would like to be my very best friend, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – I’ll get back to you ASAP and be sure to credit you with saving these 2 projects. And, as a special gift, when I release the “pro” version of the Web Service Connector, you and your company will receive a free license to it – as well as support – for free! This will easily be a $5,000 value!
So lets see if the community out there can rally around and help me get this done!
Oh, and likewise, if you’d rather send me $2,500 so I can just buy the server, well I can do that too. Send an email to the same place.
I’m fairly certain nothing will come from this post, but I’m putting it out there just in case there’s some kind soul who can help me out.
