Using the EVALUATE Function in Excel to Evaluate Text as a Formula I was asked once whether it was possible to get Excel to evaluate text as a formula, without defining a custom VBA function. For example, you may want to allow a person to enter an algebraic expression such as x^3+y as text (see the example below). When you want to create a formula using text from another cell, if the INDIRECT() function doesn't work for you and you can't get around the problem using nested IF statements or other tricks, you might want to try using the undocumented EVALUATE function. I avoid using this function in my Excel Templates because of the reasons listed below and to avoid compatibility issues, but you can download a working example (see below).
Virtualization For Dummies Cheat Sheet To help you get a better understanding and expand your knowledge of virtualization, get to know these useful terms and how they apply to virtualization and its process: Bare metal: Virtualized servers in which the virtualization software is installed directly on the machine rather than on an operating system. Because it installs on the machine, it is said to reside on “bare metal.” Client virtualization: Using virtualization to enable a client device (like a laptop) to support isolated operating environments. Client virtualization is often used to move workloads into isolated environments to reduce system administration requirements.

Barbeques Galore - Barbeque Care Gas Care Important LPG Safety Tips Store cylinder in a well ventilated area Use a cylinder sealing plug or a Gasfuse to reduce danger from leaks Always keep cylinder upright Have your cylinder safety inspected every 10 years Connecting The Gas Cylinder Before connecting the cylinder, inspect the hose, fittings and rubber seals If there is any sign of splitting or wear, have the hose replaced Make sure all connections are tightened with a spanner and then conduct this simple test: Turn the gas on at the cylinder without turning on the barbeque Brush soapy water on all the connections If bubbles appear, then there is a leak Alternatively use a Gasfuse to conduct this test quickly and more thoroughly Keep the hose free of knots & kinks To prevent gas leaks connect a Gasfuse to cylinder Transporting a Gas Cylinder
What is the difference between VMware ESX, ESXi, vSphere and vCenter? – Stackzilla It is quite easy to confuse the VMware products ESX, ESXi, vSphere and vCenter. The purpose of this article is to demistify the whole thing. But first a little background. Understanding Stainless Steel By Max Good Stainless Steel is a popular choice for grills and smokers. Two types of stainless are used in the manufacture of BBQ cookers: Austenitic and ferritic. Because it contains more nickel and less steel in the alloy, 304 is higher quality and higher cost. 430 is not as durable and it is harder to weld properly. 430 contains more steel and magnets stick to it. 304 will not attract magnets.
VMware Virtualization Fundamentals – VMware Server and VMware ESXi by Ramesh Natarajan on June 2, 2010 We are starting a new series of articles on VMware that will help you install, configure and maintain VMware environments. In this first part of the VMware series, let us discuss the fundamental concepts of virtualization and review the VMware virtualization implementation options. Following are few reasons why you might want to think about virtualization for your environment. Run multiple operation systems on one server. For example, instead of having development-server and QA-server, you can run both development and QA on a single server.You can have multiple flavours of OS on one server.

New User’s Guide to Configuring VMware ESX Networking via CLI 23 June 2009 A lot of the content on this site is oriented toward VMware ESX/ESXi users who have a pretty fair amount of experience. As I was working with some customers today, though, I realized that there really isn’t much content on this site for new users. That’s about to change. As the first in a series of posts, here’s some new user information on creating vSwitches and port groups in VMware ESX using the command-line interface (CLI). For new users who are seeking a thorough explanation of how VMware ESX networking functions, I’ll recommend a series of articles by Ken Cline titled The Great vSwitch Debate. vCenter Server: physical or virtual? - vInfrastructure Blog This post is also available in: Italian vCenter Server vDesign: Physical vs Virtual Machine Over the last years there have been some controversy over this topic: should vCenter Server be a physical or a virtual machine? There is a best solution or a best practice?

Virtual Networking 101: Understanding VMware Networking On a basic, structural level, virtual networks in VMware aren't that different from physical networks; vSphere is designed to mimic the functions of a physical network, so a lot of the network hardware you'll find in the real world, you'll find virtualized in VMware. If you understand how physical networks operate, then understanding virtual networking shouldn't be too difficult. Before jumping into an explanation of how VMware handles virtual networking, I'll first provide a quick refresher of the basic equipment that makes up a physical network. If you already have a firm understanding of how networking works, then you can skip the following paragraph.
