    If you're anything like me, a home lab virtualization enthusiast, then you may also find Brian Graf's strong selection of useful articles quite handy.

    I first came across this particular article, when doing a little VMware Converter research:

    Automatically Disable SSL – VMware Converter

    where Brian explains:

    After doing WAY too many conversions with converter I decided I was sick and tired of turning off the SSL encryption manually, closing the open files and folders, and restarting the VMware converter worker service.

    so with this gem in mind, I went ahead updated the related article of mine:

    Increasing the cloning performance of VMware Converter 5.0

    which is still growing in popularity, even after 15 months and counting. That means I have a good shot here at helping many people, by linking to Brian's tip.
