Good grief. I remember years ago when these guys just made a virtual machine. Now, in their downloads section, they have hundreds of "products" and I have no idea which one is just the the VM host. Maybe Google can help.
OK, when did this start to cost $250 for the Pro version? The free "player" version doesn't run on Windows. And I need to use VMWare because that's what the customer is using, and I need to test the proxy application I wrote locally here. Company has no problems paying the $250, it's just annoying, when (last I checked) VirtualBox is free and works great.
I used to be a VMware fan, when they had just started off, but these days their product offerings are just incomprehensible nonsense to me. By needlessly complicating things, they've pushed me over to the free Hyper-V and I've never looked back.
This, to me, is a perfect example of marketing killing sales opportunities.
That if you get an loading error in Chrome and it says it is unable to find the IP address for the DNS server of the site, continuously clicking the "Reload" button would actually cause it to be loaded.
Happens with CodeProject (and a bunch of other websites) and this works all the time! Not sure if my ISP is the problem, DNS cache is the problem, or Chrome does it itself, but this is something that I just figured—I am sure you guys would have already figured this one out.
