What happens when you share an awesome study guide from Dropbox?

This is what happens, yeah if I had known I would’ve put it somewhere else.

Hi Chad,

This email is an automated notification from Dropbox that your Public links have been temporarily suspended for generating excessive traffic. Your Dropbox will continue to function normally with the exception of Public links.

This suspension is temporary (3 days for the first time).

Please visit Dropbox support if you have any questions.

– The Dropbox Team

Is that not awesome? Whats more awesome is the fact I couldn’t find anything related to this in the support forum. Interesting though…

vSphere 5 Documentation Download and More

So I decided to waste some time the other day for while I was prepping for my VCP 5. I went ahead and compiled some PDF’s and some pretty awersome Blogs (Converted to PDF) so that way I could have an offline resource to study. I know me as a blogger I could really care less about someone using my blog to help them study and I am sure anyone in the community would really have a problem, after all that is what community is all about. 🙂

HOWEVER! If anyone would like NOT to have their blog in this awesome resource download then please let me know and I will quickly remove it.

ON A SEPERATE NOTE! If anyone would LIKE TOO have their blog noted here and would like to have a particular area to be placed in let me know as well.

Just note, that this is mostly related to getting the documentation quickly and efficiently when you need it. I use it in my drop box of course and have it sync with several systems. This makes it even more handy.

This is currently what I have: (Note: You can go to the VMware site and download the admin guides all in one zip file however, you want be able to download them in this way. I have made a zip folder for each category as specific as I can)
API and SDK Programming
CLI (vCLI and PowerCLI Includes Posters)
Other vSphere Documentation
Site Recovery Manager 5 (SRM)
VMware Storage Appliance (VSA)
VMware Update Manager (VUM)
vCenter Orchestrator (vCO)
VMware Data Recovery 2 (VDR)
VMware vCloud Director (VCD)
vSphere 5 What’s New Documentation
vSphere 5 Best Practices Documentation
vSphere 5 Networking
vSphere 5 Storage
vSphere and ESXi 5 – Admin Guides
vSphere HA-DRS Clustering Info
vSphere Management Adminstrator -vMA
Other Documentation

You can get the entire download HERE!
