Search VMware Technical Papers

Thursday, January 24, 2008 0

As a VMware geek one of the things I am often doing is searching through the Technical Resources Documents which are found at http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/cat/91

However it can be very hard to find relevant documents. There is effectively no search function and you have to go into the subpage to read the description.

To work around this I created a searchable document which list all of the technical papers, their descriptions and links. Its on one page so you can simply search it for key words.

The document is VMware Technical Resource documents listing at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-2590

I hope you find it useful.

Catch that firefox


I am a big fan of the FireFox browser. The foxmarks extension which syncs your bookmarks across different computers is very handy.

The best thing though is the keywords for bookmarks. If you have a bookmark you go to a lot you can enter a keyword for that bookmark. Instead of typing in a URL you can enter the keyword.

Forget using the mouse to click on the address bar and then type in some long address, simply do a CTRL-L (or CTRL-T if you want a new tab) and then enter your keyword and hit enter. The keyboard is so much faster.

For people like me who are always looking up reference information on the same pages its a great feature.
