  • Will You Be Testing Windows version 7?

    I’m interested in finding out how many people want to test Windows 7, either for their home networks or their business networks (small or large). I have created a poll via LinkedIn where I hope to capture this information.  If you are a LinkedIn user, please feel free to participate. Thanks!

  • Hyper-V is here!!

    On June 26, Microsoft released Hyper-V for Windows Server 2008 to manufacturing. You can download it today! Now, I can really finish up with my home network virtualization project, which has been languishing because I haven't had a lot of free time. A few reviews of Beta and Release Candidate code can already be found on the web, including this ...

  • Centralized Social Networking

    Right now, I belong to a large number of social networks (more on that later).  For the most part, I'm really only active on LinkedIn, but as more people connect to me on Plaxo and Facebook, my profile has been getting some action on those networks as well. As expected, the proliferation of such networks is giving rise consolidation and ...

  • Vista SP1

    It has been officially available for a couple weeks now, but some of us have been running it for over a month at this point.  Of course, outside of the MSDN and TechNet avenues, the only way to get it was due to a Microsoft mistake. In any event, my home and work systems have seen tremendous benefit from the upgrade to Service Pack 1 for ...

  • It's Nearing Tax Time

    Don't be a procrastinator.  File your taxes online, or use the downloadable editions of the various tax preparation software products (which is what I do), or even see your accountant or your neighborhood H&R Block establishment (I did that only once - never again). ComputerWorld just posted a review of TurboTax and TaxCut for the Mac, ...

  • Community Server Update is on the Horizon...

    Service Pack 3 for Community Server 2007 is on the horizon, considering that a beta for SP3 was recently made available by the folks at Telligent.  I'm glad that I checked, because I was planning to update my site to CS2007 SP2 this holiday weekend, but I remembered that I have previously been surprised by updates on occasions such as ...

  • 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. What a waste of time.  If folks would focus more on the issues they need to address, and less on showmanship and one-up-manship, they ...

  • It's CommunityServer Time, Once Again...

    It's been quite some time since I've posted about CommunityServer, mostly because I've been busy working on a variety of different projects.  Now that CommunityServer 2007 (CS2007) has been officially released, it's time for me to get back on that bandwagon and start testing out the new functionality.  Unfortunately, I barely had any ...

  • Making the move to 64-bit Vista -- Finally!

    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 ...

  • Beta 1 of Community Server 2007

    Even though CS2007 has been available for over a month now, and even though I managed to download it just a couple days after release, I still haven't had an opportunity to play with it at home or at work.  I've been too busy finishing up a couple of other projects... Hopefully, I'll have a chance to get to it in the next few weeks.  ...

If you're not using Pando yet, then you're really, really missing out on a great tool for sharing your data and content with family and friends without ...

  • A Brief Look Inside the Vista Kernel

    Mark Russinovich has provided another great series of ''Inside Windows'' articles, with his Inside the Vista Kernel postings on TechNet. Part one dealt with: Thread priority and scheduling File-based symbolic links Canceling I/O operations Part two, which is linked above, deals with: Memory management Startup and shutdown Power management ...

  • 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.  ...

  • Pando gets more options

    If you're looking for a convenient way to move around or share very large files with friends and family, then you really need to check out Pando.  I've been happily using Pando for quite a while, now -- even before version 1.0 was released. Well, it's now up to version 1.4, with a mature Outlook plugin, plus plugins for a variety of ...
