Welcome to the Wahl Network blog, one of many sites in the Wahl Network evil empire of world domination. This blog was founded in late 2010 by myself, Chris Wahl, as a place to write down thoughts on various technical challenges with little concern over posting schedules and who would actually read what I wrote. Over the years, I discovered that I have a strong desire to write and express my opinion, which lead me to elevate this blog into a weekly endeavor with a focus on data center technologies, business challenges, and discovering new products and solutions. And, to my surprise, people actually stumbled upon this site to read my rambling.
Content is delivered at least once weekly, with a goal of twice weekly. I highly recommend subscribing to the blog to get any new posts delivered to your inbox with a spam-free guarantee (I have absolutely no interest in selling your e-mail address; in fact, I don’t even look at them). You can also use RSS if that is your preferred method.
I also try to publish a new video to my YouTube site at least once per month. Much like the blog, becoming a subscriber to the YouTube channel is recommended, as you will get early access to my videos in real time.
Who Do You Use For Site Hosting?
This question comes up a lot. I use A Small Orange to host the site and am affiliate. The price is very reasonable, but above that I love how responsive they are to any support issues I have. A while back I blew up my site with a rogue plugin that locked me out of WordPress. I submitted a ticket to their staff to assist, and within 30 minutes one of their techs had backed up my entire WordPress site, identified the plugin causing my issue, and had me up and running. Amazing support and reliable hosting keeps me a customer.
The Wacky Side
One of my favorite profile photos to use is a Simpsons-like headshot image. It was created for me by the team over at SolarWind’s thwack site, where I have done a few tours as an Ambassador.
I also tend to get into trouble as I explore the world with other geeky friends, especially when there is a pizza vending machine involved.
Sometimes I find weird purple suits to offer free hugs.
And occasionally I stop goofing around and do some real work in a data center, where I am virtualizing everything I can (even myself).
What is a Virtualization Whisperer?
I have no idea. It sounded funny.
