Suffering through a Visual Studio installation in VMware

Tue, Oct 16, 2007
It is painfully slow to do disk intensive things in a virtual environment on my laptop. The disk, and hence the laptop, is getting very hot. I forgot to bring my Zalman laptop cooler to work today. A mistake I get punished for now. It is not just hot as h..l it had the sound characteristics of a hairdryer. With the cooler attached I have to stress the laptop a lot before it gets really hot.
