"I'm a big fan of the show.  It has been very helpful to me in my quest
to learn Powershell.

I just finished listening to Episode 61 and wanted to comment on the
discussion regarding disk alignment.  I too had never heard of disk
alignment until LogicsOne told us about it a couple years ago.  Since
then aligning disks has been a part of our VM build process.  You can

Thanks again, and keep up the good work."
