    Hi Carter,

    I found your blog today while looking at a conversation stream. Nice to find your blog!

    I noticed several of your posts refer to our StorageWorks Extreme Data Storage System – I have a blog entry from yesterday that I’ll continue today with part 2 that you might be interested in: Would love to have you add our HP StorageWorks blog to you list of “Associates” too.
