Extending Your VMWare Disk

In: Technology

I was downloading a ton of files on one of my virtual machines when I noticed that it started to run out of disk space. Now this was the first time I had this issue with a virtual machine so I did a little digging on google. The solution is pretty easy but its a [...]

Windows XP Fundamentals

In: Technology

Windows Fundamentals [...]

This is one of the worst and slowest download managers I’ve ever seen. I decided to download the latest AX VM – Refresh 2 and since the files were a little big (19 files of 700mb each) it automatically popped up this file transfer manager. Even if you select to download 2 files at once, [...]

While looking up the [...]

We are implementing Dynamics AX at the office and the Microsoft partners have been bragging a lot about the Sure Step Methodology that they use. Sure Step is basically a comprehensive guideline for project managers with PartnerSource companies. It provides a clear outline of all the milestones and tasks needed to successfully implement a project. [...]
