When I was in High School (a long time ago!) I associated one hour of work as being worth about the cost of a movie ticket. At the time I made $3.35/an hour. And a movie ticket cost $3.50. As it turns out, historically these values have always been pretty close. Today, a movie costs slightly more than an hour of work ($7.96 vs $7.25). So it looks like either movie prices should come down a bit, or the minimum wage should be raised. I'm not looking to argue here, just making an observation. :) Here's a historical chart comparing the cost of a movie with the Federal Minimum wage. The numbers are pulled from Box Office Mojo, and the US Dept of Labor.
Click on the chart to enlarge. I have meager excel skills, so I apologize in advance that the chart isn't that great.

Vmware sees the volume as empty.
But Equallgic thinks it's full. What the hey!?
1) Make sure there is no data on the volume that you need. Check twice. :)
2) Remove the volume from vmware.
3) Log into the EQL GUI, delete snapshots of the volume
4) change the volume to "thick provisioned" ( volume - modify settings - space tab - uncheck "thin provisioned volume")
5) set volume offline (right click volume - set offline)
6) Log into the EQL command line interface (via putty or whatever), and type the following: "volume select
7) Now go back into the EQL GUI, expand the volume back to the size you want, thin provision it again, and add the storage back to vmware.
Here's a screenshot of the volume afterwards. Free space again, woot!
