I had read that the slides were going to be available the weekend before Vmworld. That would have been great to figure out what sessions I really should have gone to. There were some where the description didn't really relate to what the session was. Or, I thought it was somethng different anyway.
It takes forever to downoad each presentation individually and i think we don't need audio for most of them.
Would it be possible to create a bundle of all presentations in pdf in a compressed archive ?
When I go to the video spot my username has disappeared from my submissions, I'm also gone from the top member list. Don't you like the stuff I submitted?
I had to reset my password to activate my account again, but I'm still not linked to all my submission, instead I see a guest account in my place.
My complete history an profile have disappeared.... Is there a possibility to fix this?
I have tracked down the PDF slides for PO1323: Best Practices for Virtualizing Active Directory
Sign in and then visit this page to launch the session w/ attached files:
I do agree, it would be nice if they provided the sessions and other videos or information from the show on DVD to attendees. It would keep their servers from being bombarded with people trying to download, and make most of the folks a bit happier just having EVERYTHING on one DVD to get at, rather than playing hunt and peck to find everything online.
It would be nice,I had thought about putting them together and selling them last year but they changed their policies and didn't freely release the sessions to the public right after the show like previous years. They seem to be protective of the content especially since most of it is used again for VMworld Europe and doing the DVD thing would make it easier for people to spread the content around to non-attendees. Last year I downloaded all the mp3, pdf and swf files, it took quite a while though. This year I might try to script the download or use an add-in like DownloadThemAll for Firefox instead.
I tried an auto-download program but, it couldn't grab the PDF's for some reason. Anyway, I've got them all downloaded and on an easy to swallow DVD with a web-page front end. It's not pretty but it works. I'm not sure why Vmware couldn't do it. It took me a few hours. For the cost of Vmworld, they could have thrown in a $1.00 DVD. I would have given up a hat, or those pins they were giving out in favor of a DVD.
Could you please put all the pdf presentations (no audio needed) in one or a small number of zip files
on an ftp share accessible to all the attendees ?
We cannot afford to spend 2 days to downoad the PDFs one by one.
Thanks a lot.
