It uses a declarative syntax to define a configuration for a ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

  • Needless Vendor Bashing -- by Vendors

    In today's story of immense irony, we find a vendor taking time to bash another vendor for a security flaw, only to have diligent 3rd parties point out that the flaw exists for the bashing vendor as well.

    Yeah, yeah, it took me long enough.  What can I say?  I finally bit the bullet and installed Vista Ultimate x64 Edition on my laptop.  As I mentioned last month, my Vista upgrade path was not as smooth as I had hoped, since I was going to be forced to perform a clean install, but I must say that the actual installation ...

  • Getting Used to Windows Vista

    My Vista initiation continues, and so far, I don't have much to complain about.  I've done this whole ''new version of Windows'' thing enough times in the past 15 or so years that I know that there's really no point in not spending a week or two getting used to the new functionality before complaining about what I think I lost.  ...

  • Got my January ActionPack Subscription

    I came home this evening to find out that the January shipment of my Microsoft ActionPack Subscription arrived today. Sweet!! Sort of, anyway...  First the good news:  I got my Office 2007 licenses, or should I say, Microsoft Office System 2007.  It even came with SharePoint Server 2007, and Microsoft Office Accounting ...
