tiredserver died now let's clean up or adventures in powercli and finding vmware templates

so tiredserver died and templates are all over the place. where are they, really?
 PowerCLI C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphere PowerCLI>   
 foreach($vmhost in get-vmhost){get-template -Location $vmhost | select name,@{n='VMHOST';e={$vmhost.name}},@{n='VMTX';e={$_.extensiondata.config.files.VmPathName}}}  
 Name               VMHOST          VMTX  
 ----                ------           ----  
 win2008                192.168.0.190     [tiredserver] win2k8R2-64-ffan/win2k8R2-64-ffan.vmtx  
 SLES11-64-JAVA1.7-15GB      192.168.0.190     [esx--host05] clone-vm/clone-vm.vmtx  
 SLES11-64          192.168.0.190     [awakeserver] SLES11-64/SLES11-64.vmtx  
 SLES11Clone          192.168.0.190     [esx--host05] SLES11Clone/SLES11Clone.vmtx  
 SLES11-64-JAVA1.7     192.168.0.190     [awakeserver] SLES11-64-JAVA1.7/SLES11-64-JAVA1.7.vmtx  
 win2012-gui           192.168.0.190     [esx--host05] win2012-gui/win2012-gui.vmtx  
 win2012-core          192.168.0.190      [esx--host05] win2012-core/win2012-core.vmtx  
 tmpl               192.168.0.190     [esx--host05] tmpl/tmpl.vmtx  
and then you edit the vmtx files to point somewhere else. and then you register them. yes, you do. vim-cmd solo/registervm /vmfs/volumes/datastore_name/VM_directory/VM_name.vmtx
