Jarvis's Ramblings

My touch with "fame"

It was truly amazing the number of people who came up to me last week as a result of the video at MMS. All week I had people recognizing me from the video. Some just stopped me to say they liked the video. Quite a few wanted to pick my brain about what I had done with OSD in SCCM. Honestly…it was a lot of fun to be able to meet so many people and to hopefully help out a few.

One of the funniest comments came from Brian Mason. I had met him last year at MMS when I tracked him down to ask for input on deploying patches with ITMU in SMS 2003. Every time he saw me in the hallways after the video he called me a “rock star”. He had me laughing. I really enjoyed a couple of the conversations I had with Brian between/during sessions…the one that we had while skipping the last keynote was exceptionally helpful. Thanks Brian!

I also had a series of funny run-ins on the way home from MMS. As I was in the Southwest Airlines check-in line in Las Vegas, the guy in line behind me was flying to Nashville. He recognized me from the video and made a comment about it. Later, after landing in Orlando, the guy sitting directly in front of me on the plane also mentioned seeing the video. Then…while standing in the baggage claim area waiting on my luggage to come through, I had another guy from the conference come up to me saying something about the video. It was really wild.

To everyone who came up to me throughout the week…thanks for the encouragement. I hope I helped a couple of you. Keep checking back to this site. I will continue to post about the SCCM things that I am working through. Hopefully it will help some of you.
