Like everybody I often have to search to what program an extension belongs.
I found a very helpfull website that supports you in solving the questions.

File extension is a set of characters after the dot in the name of a file. A file named "FileName.doc", for example, has "doc" as its file extension. is a database of file extensions and various programs that utilize them. All the information is gathered from the users' PCs through Software Informer Client.

Just enter the desired extension in the "Search extension" box and push the "Find" button - and you will come up with a list of programs this extension can be associated with. The top program in the list will be the one that is used with this extension by the greater number of the Software Informer users. You may choose any...

After two very successful day's at the previous Altiris headquarters in Lindon I had to travel to Jacksonville Florida. Sunday is my first day off after 8 very exhausting day's of traveling, working, catching up some sleep and traveling again.

I'm making a tour through the United States. Actually I will hit on 10 States in 12 days.

I started in Somerset, New Jersey on Sunday. Traveled to Manhattan Wall Street on Monday.
On Tuesday after a very exiting day of work on Wall Street I took the Acela train to Boston.
I left Boston Thursday very early to get to Salt Lake City with a short stop in Phoenix, Arizona.
Saturday morning very early I left Salt Lake where it was snowing and freezing and made a short stop in Atlanta (22 minutes) to go to Jacksonville.
Monday I will do a VirtualStorm implementation in Jacksonville and Monday evening I fly to Atlanta.
Tuesday I do a VirtualStorm Installation in Atlanta and Wednesday morning I have a Flight...

Today, Friday the 13th of November 2009 I'm a guest of Symantec in the Lindon office in Utah. There I will work with the SWV team to show them how we use SWV, and we talk about real time issues that we see with SWV.
All to make it much better then it already is.

It is so great to see all the people who work on SVS and now SWV to make it even better.
Most of them I already know because they are frequent Connect visitors, but now I see the faces behind the names.

I can not say anything, but believe me:
SWV will get better and better.

Cheers from Utah

After a very cool demo at VMworld VirtualStorm shocked the VM people.

Running over 450 VM's on each host and still having a very great response. Actually these 450 VM's could be used by users without seeing any latency or experiencing unresponsiveness. The images run a small script that generates some load. It simulates end users and preforms some tasks.

With the Cisco USc and the EMc next gen storage we are really doing some cool demos.

VMware told us that we would not be able to go over the border of 320 images on each host, but we reach 450 without any problem.

Thursday on the last day we are going to stress the environment to see how far we can go.

Can we go over the border of 512 on each host?
Can we go over 3000 managed VM's in VirtualCenter?
How will the hardware do?

If you are at VMworld, take a look at it.
We start at 2 PM.

If you're not there? Then keep on my blog. We will record it and put it on Symantec....

After an 18 hour trip we are finally in San Francisco. Great city to be in, especially if you have never been there before. We took a cab from the airport to 5th Street where our hotel is. After some shopping and a very great steak it's time to get some sleep. The time difference is 9 hours, so at the time we went to bed, 9 PM, for us it is 6 AM.

And the a short sleep to 4AM. That's called a jet lag.

Today we are going to bring up the Nehalem servers, make sure ESX runs and upload our virtual servers that we use for VirtualStorm.

The servers are fully installed and configured, so that we are sure that we only have to upload them and boot them.

Also the VirtualStorm image is prepared and we have over 30GB of apps with us to show people what we are exactly doing. All apps are packaged with SVS admin and we used some scripts to make everything work like it should.

Then we are going to clone the master image 500 times because we need 500 images.

From the 9th to the 22nd of August I visited the United States doing packaging and VirtualStorm setups.

During these two weeks I visited Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, Connecticut, Ohio and Kentucky. I spoke to a lot of people like Axel Wirth of Symantec who was having lunch at the New York airport at a table next to mine. He recognized us because we took Symantec backpacks with us - the ones Symantec gave away in Las Vegas at Manage Fusion.

I arrived at home on Sunday August 22nd and now I'm preparing for VMworld 2009. So Friday the 28th I will be traveling for more then 18 hours to get in San Francisco.

At VMworld we will do a lot of VirtualStorm demos.

  • Clone and deploy up to 1000 images on the newest storage solutions. Full SSD disks. Cisco nexus switches and Intel Nehalem processors. That will be very cool. Deploy a full Windows XP image in less then 18 seconds.
  • In these images there is unique patent pending technology...

Microsoft Office to go online — for free

The last version of Office didn’t include a free online version. The next one will.
It’s too early to say Microsoft has checkmated Google in online documents – the latest version of Office hasn’t shipped yet. But the sleeping giant in Redmond has clearly woken up to the Internet threat.

Get this: Microsoft – the king of paid software – will announce today that it is going to give a version of Office away for free online. Both the online and desktop versions are scheduled to arrive in the first half of next year. Yes, you read that right. The latest version of its ubiquitous productivity software, dubbed Office 2010, will come as both a piece of software you can buy for your computer, and as a service you can access in your browser. [UPDATE: Microsoft says it will support the Firefox and Safari browsers as well as IE.]
