so this guy walked into a blog...

Almost anybody who's doing anything in the open source world is, in effect, standing on the shoulders of giants.  We find information here, we find it there, we put it into use, we ignore it.  Some put it into books, others into blogs, or even into 140 character tweets.  Nobody is working in isolation.

I've been working with virtualization for a number of years, but lately it's been pushed to the fast track and I've found myself developing large-scale (dare I say cloud?) solutions with Xen which I'm also looking to push into KVM.  If I find something useful or interesting, rather than document it to myself in a text file and throwing that into git, I'm going to try to force myself to write it up and share it here.  Hopefully, in my doing so, others can pick up on things that took me a bit of time and effort to research and figure out and perhaps they can contribute even better ways of doing things.  I improve my documenting skills, perhaps clarify some thoughts, get feedback, and help others.  Everybody wins.
