Newsletter: June 19, 2021

Hello all, I hope everyone had a good week. Mine was good too. I have a lot to share this week so should get started. BTW, I am having hand problems so not sure how long I will be able to do this newsletter.

There are new VTSP and VOP accreditations and you can learn about them here.

BTW, the problems I had getting my lab working was it was a real greenfield. No DNS. When I added DNS running in a VM in Workstation and defined hosts and vC in it install was easy and smooth. But next day everything was disconnected and not working. Very odd.

BTW, I am sorry I am so late with my June 5th newsletter. Not sure what happened but likely pain distracted me.

I also want to thank my readers. I do not have much to do in medical retirement so this newsletter takes lots of work so it keeps me busy.

Have a great week,
