Maybe I'm a bit slow, but when I see the same thing happen 5, 10 or maybe 20 times, sometimes a dim bulb goes on in my head, and I say "wait, maybe there's a pattern here!".
As you know, I spend a lot of time with customers. It's so much fun, I sometimes wonder why I'm allowed (and paid!) to do it.
And you know I've written about information infrastructure considerations for VMware ESX before.
So, I'm now starting to see the same thing over and over again.
And it's entirely avoidable.
