  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Home Network Virtualization Project, Part 2

    When I wrote part 1 of the home network virtualization project, I didn't realize that I actually had an updated network diagram available. I created it last October, but never posted it -- for reasons which completely escape me right now. I suppose that I was waiting until I actually performed the upgrades at the end year before I would post ...
