  • It’s The Little Things That Get You Every Time…

    Even on the smallest of networks, the failure to pay attention to every detail can make a routine upgrade or migration far more complicated than it needs to be. This year, I’ve had an above average number of mail server related incidents, but in many cases I made things worse by overlooking something small. For instance, there were at least 3 ...

  • What Software as a Service Really Provides

    Software as a Service, or SaaS, is seen and marketed as a way to remove or reduce the complexities and cost associated with local enterprise software deployments, especially where such software has a desktop installation facet to it. As is typical with all (relatively new) technologies – especially in recent years – there comes the inevitable ...

  • Let's Get Ready to Virtualize!

    After many months, and a few miscellaneous upgrades to other parts of my network, I'm finally about to get a jump on my home virtualization overhaul project.  A number of things have changed from the original plan, however. Since that plan was presented back in October, Microsoft has released Windows Server 2008, with a beta of Hyper-V, ...

  • Still waiting for Vista SP1

    It's always something.  On Sunday, I was pretty hyped up about the fact that Service Pack 1 for Vista was very near release, but that has been deflated by the realization that Microsoft is going to hold off on actually making the code available March. Mind you, the code is already finalized, but they're concerned that some devices will ...

  • Reflection Time

    This week is a period of transition for me.  I'm in the midst of a brief transition between employers, and also some lengthier transitions on the home network. (I really need to shore up some aspects of my home network, and provide a new network diagram.  And I have to finish up some loose ends with technology migrations that I began ...

  • Migrating to Exchange 2007

    I've had my Exchange 2007 server built for a couple of months now, but I hadn't taken the time to migrate any of the mailboxes or other resources from my older Exchange 2003 server.   I'm going to try to get that all done this weekend.  I just need to finish reading the migration documentation for Exchange 2007. I really have to ...

  • The Microsoft Dilemma

    The issue I speak of relates to how many changes and new features should go into a new release of their software product.  If Microsoft adds lots of new functionality, then customers and analysts conclude that the likelihood of bugs within the new code is high and so they avoid product adoption for months or years or until several service ...

  • Windows Vista is finally here...

    At the retail level, anyway. And I am no closer to having it installed at home than I was a month ago, when I laid out my grand plans for software upgrades.  I have been heavily involved in a lot of projects lately, both at work and at church, so time management is crucial.  Let's see what February brings! Anyway, back to ...

  • A Cost-Effective Infrastructure Deployment Strategy

    Over the past few days, I have seen at least two posts or articles on a subject I've been meaning to write about for quite some time, now.  The first one I saw was by Rob Howard, and although it deals mostly with software development, it struck a chord with me.  Today, I saw a post on Kevin Stone's blog which referenced a ...
