Semi retired old time computer nerd who started programming on a Commodore Pet.

Since I'm also active in the Physics forum I should add that I started as a theoretical chemist, moved into solid state photochemistry and finally worked in industry as a colloid scientist. I only became a full time computer nerd in 1997.

comment anyone found a really compelling use for powershell
Assuming you're the Preet who used to hang out in the development forums on Cix then yes, I used to be the moderator. I'm less of a developer and more of a server dude these days :-)

comment What's the easiest way to clone a production virtual machine for testing?
I would simply change the NIC to an internal virtual network. That will prevent the network seeing the duplicate name. NB, in fact NBBBBBBB, if a domain is involved run sysprep (or the SysInternals SID changer whose name escapes me). Don't just change the name. If you don't run sysprep you'll get a duplicate machine GUID and it will cause you problems on the domain.
