Wow, this Microsoft 6419A class has a lot of good information in it, but I have to say, the class is only as good as your instructor.

My instructor, Terry Smith, here at New Horizons in Irving (Dallas), Texas,  is outstanding. He really knows his class material and is able to fine tune it to the students.

If you are working in the Server or Network Administration field and only have experience up to Server 2003 environments, and you are either planning to implement, or have implemented Server 2008, I would highly recommend taking this class, and not to downplay the abilities of any other instructor, but if you are lucky to get Terry Smith, you will learn a lot.

Microsoft has come a long way when it comes to servers and infrastructure, and just like Windows XP and Windows 7, with Server 2008 Microsoft has finally reached a major milestone of functionality.

Back again…! Trip to Dallas. AeroGardens.

Well, it’s been  over a week again since my last post…

I’ve been soooooo busy its not even funny… and its been wearing on me, to say the least!

I need to get back to eating a good organic, high fiber diet to regain my digestive health.

I think I will try to blog about my nutritional diet, and how it is currently affecting me negatively, as well as some of the things I’ve been reading about and what I want to try out.

I will be leaving on Sunday afternoon for Dallas to go to a training class to get educated on MS Server 2008, namely the MS6419 class, which will progress me towards my MCITP Certification which will hopefully get me a raise.

While in Dallas I will be living on Whole Foods Market food, and that will do my body good. I hope this will give me the boost I need to get back on track, and when I get back home I will have to try to stay on track as much as I can.

One way I hope to accomplish this is by buying one of the AeroGarden Extra hydroponic gardens to grow tomatoes, and an AeroGarden 7 to grow salad greens at work, and to ensure that the veggies are getting a good nutrition I will be adding some Greensand to the nutrient mix to provide additional micro-nutrients to the veggies.

I will probably start with the AeroGarden Extra, which currently costs $160. I figure once the tomato plants start bearing fruit, I should recoup my cost of the garden in about 26 weeks (6 months), because these tomatoes will replace the small tubs of cherry or grape tomatoes that run about $6 a tub! After that, all I will have is the running cost of nutrients to add to the garden.

Once I’m on track to paying for this unit, I will order the  AeroGarden 7 which is $99 and will probably take about a year to pay for since it will replace about $2-3 a week in lettuce purchases, but the lettuce and tomatoes will be fresh off the plant and make this totally worth it.

Finally I would like to buy an AeroGarden SpaceSaver 6 to complete my setup at work so I can grow fresh herbs. This unit will go into the corner of my unused desk space, and the other two units will be on either side, and the space in front of them will become my eating surface. I figure this will take me about 6-8 months to setup, and pay for itself in about a year since I will be making way less trips to the store, saving in fuel and time in addition to better, and fresher food, or so I hope.

More later…
