Are you kidding me?

I have figured out why Godzilla was able to attack Tokyo without any advance warning. It's because everyone was going about their business, distracted... Either by cell phones or manga books or just generally ignoring their surroundings.  If you haven't met me, let me paint a picture: I am 6'2" tall (a head taller than... Continue Reading →

A Modern Christmas Carol by Mitch

Twas the night before Christmas in faraway Japan One Jewish boy was still working with aplomb and elan. He tried to clear his dashboard of servers of red, While visions of sashimi swum round in his head. He raised his head up from his screen on occasion, To see some of his colleagues showing true...

Server Core Address Woes

From the files of “What the F@rk?!” Here’s a little gotcha that I’ve been wrestling with all afternoon.  I hope this post can save some of you the frustration (exacerbated by jetlag) that I have been experiencing.

A Twist…

If you are a frequent reader of The World According to Mitch then you know that I very often take experiences that I have had (or observations that I have made) and apply them to the world of IT.  For a change, I thought I would take this opportunity to go the other way. This... Continue Reading →

Back to Japan!

I got a nasty email today from a friend who is angry that I have been writing about PowerShell.  Actually to be completely accurate he doesn’t care that I blog about PowerShell, he is just upset that it has been several days (a week?) since I last wrote about my travels in Japan.  I am...

MCT Regional Lead

It was a great honour to be selected as the MCT Regional Lead for Canada for the inaugural year of that program (See article).  I like to say that the MCT Regional Lead program spent the first year figuring out what it was going to be.  I was thrilled to be a part of that.... Continue Reading →
