Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Our Washington correspondent, scourge of Feds, Reds and tech-heads, Thomas C Greene went and tied the knot yesterday at 3pm.

Here at Vulture Central, we only met his Malaysian bride Eeleng Ong briefly when she came over with Thomas last summer and we wish them all the best for the future. Ideally for Thomas, he met Eeleng on IRC three years ago before embarking on a tour of France and the good old UK with her.

And for a further techie angle, Thomas' best man was none other than SecurityFocus scribe Kevin Poulsen, whose lovely girlfriend, EFF legal beagle Lauren Gelman, stood up as Eeleng's bridesmaid.

As for compatibility, Thomas had this to say: "I reckon travel brings out the worst in people, and if a couple can enjoy each other's company in those circumstances, they're likely to be well matched."

"As for shared interests, we despise each other's book and music collections; I tend to laugh at movies that make her cry and vice versa; she's brilliant with numbers while I can hardly remember my own birthday -- but we're both hopelessly enthusiastic foodies, and I, luckily, am a gifted cook. Ya gotta love a woman who can savour good whiskey and Cognac without water, dig the hell out of an acidic, mineral-laden white Burgundy on a hot afternoon, or tear into foie gras swimming in a cream reduction without giving a single neurotic thought to her dress size." He then cheekily asked for the day off.

He's currently incommunicado -- if that's what you call it. ®
