  • My Workplace Technology Wish List

    It is not every day that one gets an opportunity to put together a wish list of technology solutions that could be used to drive a modern, highly productive workplace. So, let’s begin our If Money Were No Object quest… Every office has desktops and notebooks, and they’ll continue to be useful for quite some time. To make them even more useful, ...

  • Passing the Firewall Torch

    I’ve had a Netscreen firewall handling my internet connection at home for almost a full decade now.  I first got my hands on a Netscreen 5 back in Feb of 2001, and it was amazing that you could get that much flexibility in such a tiny device for a reasonable price.  I quickly setup all sorts of rules and filtering that was light years ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

    This is the sixth part in a series of articles tracking the implementation of virtualization on my home network.  Planning for the project originally started at the end of 2007, with some equipment purchased in early 2008, but the bulk of the work was completed in the past 2 months. For those interested in seeing how this all played out over ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Part 2

    It has been a very productive year so far, as it pertains to my ongoing Home Network Re-Engineering Project.  In fact, the past few days have been especially productive. I was finally able to fix the hardware problem that prevented my old domain controller from booting, and since the boys’ old Windows XP machine began to fail (spontaneous ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010

    For the first time in over a decade, my home network saw no major improvements for almost 2 years. Let’s just say that the past few years have been interesting…  From March 2008 until December 2009, several major undertakings that I had planned for my networking environment were put on hold.  Additionally, I suffered a few hardware ...

  • Why Businesses Standardize on Technology

    I experienced a wide range of emotions as I read this allegedly tech savvy article in the Wall Street Journal, written by someone who is deemed a journalist for reasons which clearly have no basis in reality.  Mostly, I was surprised, because this is not the caliber of information that I expect from a publication such as the Wall Street ...

  • Where Simplicity and Technology Really Intersect

    The prevailing wisdom says that technology is supposed to be getting simpler all the time.  This belief appears to be pervasive with many corporate leaders who insist that there should be less of a need for expensive technology experts in an organization over time, since technology is becoming simpler and less error prone. I touched on this ...

  • Father and Daughter Time

    ''Daddy, can you show me how to build a computer?'' That was the request I received today from my 11 year-old daughter.   I guess it helped that I had a whole lot of computer parts laying about, with some unfinished systems.  I've been pretty busy of late, but it's all good busy -- nothing to complain about. I still haven't ...

  • Major Holiday Upgrades

    First of all, I hope that everyone has had a very enjoyable Christmas with friends and family.  I know that the holidays aren't always pleasant for everyone, but I hope that this year has been especially good for everyone. I finally have some free time this week.  Things have been very hectic the past few months, but this week I'm going ...

  • Minor System Upgrade

    I was forced to upgrade one of my systems this week because the motherboard (or CPU) died.  Rather than mess around trying to figure out which specific component was impacted, I ran over to NewEgg (virtually, of course), and picked up a new AMD Sempron 3400+ CPU and a Gigabyte Socket 754 motherboard for cheap to replace the previous Athlon ...

  • Adventures in Wireless Media Entertainment

    I just upgraded to v0.9.56.2 of TVersity which manages the content for my wireless media player.  Around Christmas 2005, I finally obtained a wireless media player, the D-Link DSM-320. I guess I should have looked at the TVersity site earlier, because there was a bug which would occasionally freeze my DSM-320 when playing certain video ...
