  • The Dangers of Consolidation

    It has been said that technology in general, and automation in particular, simply make it easier for humans to propagate errors much faster than they could otherwise do so. This morning, I awoke to find that none of my scripts – on any of my machines – had executed overnight.  Hmmmm?!? Initially, I only thought that it was two scripts that ...

  • 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 ...

  • More Technology Goodness Today

    There were some excellent technology releases today.  The two I care about the most are Microsoft Windows 7, and the latest update of XeeSM from Xeequa. I expect Windows 7 to be big, big, big in the next few months, and I’ll be dedicating a solid post before the end of the year to talk about the installations I have done.  32-bit and ...

If you want to install the beta, you should start with this information from TechNet.  Even more detail is provided by Mark Russinovich, with his Inside Windows 7 interview.  Here is an excerpt from this article: One very ...

  • 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!

  • Windows Server 2008

    Lately, I've been so busy with processes and procedures and policies, that I haven't had a chance to play with the upcoming version of Windows Server 2008.  I have had an opportunity to read a number of reports, including the one from eWeek, and it seems that the reports are favorable, especially where the new virtualization features are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Recent Home Network Woes...

    The annual upgrade plans for my home network have to be accelerated somewhat due to a couple of system failures I have experienced over the past few months. It all started back in August when my old desktop system died.  Thankfully, it was already the former desktop system at the time of its demise, and I was getting ready to ...
