    Hi Raymond,

    I am glad you like it, though unfortunately I am not doing much with TSM lately as I moved to VMware(Career shift). Though I kept operating this blog and add to it every now and then. Though a lot of what I am posting here today is more of how to backup a virtual environment including how to use TSM for that, as well covering other products. Not many more TSM tutorials as it used to.
