So Say SMEs Returns for Third Season

Kong and I have returned for a third season of So Say SMEs.  We have a few changes for season 3, but we will continue to talk cloud and virtualization with some geek and sports talk too.  In terms of changes - Kong has moved over to SolarWinds and we going to focus a bit more on performance when we get the chance.
