  • The beat goes on…

    Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending an Angelbeat conference in NYC.  One of the best products I saw while I was there was from Persystent Technologies.  This application allows you to maintain the configuration of a desktop or laptop system and restore it to a pre-ordained state – even if the OS itself gets corrupted. Over the ...

  • The Business of Information Technology

    There is an excellent discussion taking place on the LinkedIn group for CIO magazine under the heading of: Some thoughts on IT-Business Alignment from the Chase Zander IT Director Forum (as influenced by CIO Forum members) So far, there are over 35 responses, and many of them are really good.  A couple of them got me to thinking about where ...

  • Get Even More Space With DropBox

    I’ve been using DropBox since last summer, and I wrote about how useful after just a few months of use.  Well, another 6 months have passed, and it has become even more indispensible for me.  I’ve recently started using the collaboration feature of DropBox, and it looks like my usage of this service is only going to increase, given the ...

  • Effective IT Leadership

    This month, I’ve been reading some really good articles and books on IT Leadership and Project Management, including several books by Bob Lewis, author of Keep the Joint Running. If you consider yourself an IT Leader, you could do much, much worse than to purchase one or more of the books you find on his website, and then apply some of the ...

  • The IT Roadmap Expo

    This past Tuesday, I had the great fortune of participating in the NYC IT Roadmap Expo 2009 as a session speaker presenting a case study. This was a first for me, and I am happy to report that I had a great time.  My presentation was well received (although I didn’t have any pictures or graphics in my slides) and afterwards, a few people ...

  • It’s Time To Look At Windows 7

    Microsoft has released a beta of its new OS, Windows 7, as well as some details about its functionality. 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 ...

  • Managing Information Security in 2009

    Since the middle of 2008, we have seen an increase in the types and complexity of information security attacks that organizations have been facing. The widespread worms of 2004 and 2005 gave way to the targeted attacks of 2006 and early 2007.  Things quieted down in the latter portion of 2007, as the security industry was able to clamp down ...

  • Driving the Business Forward with Technology

    For many years, common wisdom suggested that the folks in technology were the ones who were least apt to see the whole picture about where the business was going, but were more interested in playing with cool, gee whiz stuff.  And, there’s no denying that this was true for a while – even as recently as the earlier part of this decade. If ...

  • 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!

  • It’s FIOS Time

    The past month or two has been interesting for my home network from a technology standpoint.  I have a server that went down because of a motherboard issue; I need some new drive rails to bring my Windows 2008 server online; my cable service from Comcast went out for a couple days; and I finally made the jump to Verizon FIOS. It’s only been ...

  • Carry your files with you

    A couple months ago, a colleague at work introduced me to DropBox, which was in private beta at the time.  Their motto is simple: online storage that just works. Take a look at the video and give it a try.  They have clients for Windows, Linux and the Mac. I just started playing with it, but I can already see that it has a very good ...

  • It's been a long, long month

    It's been quite some time since I've taken a moment to blog anything.  Lots of stuff going on at work has been the main culprit, but traditionally, summers are very busy for me -- both at work and at church. There are several technology articles that I would like to comment on, while they still bear some relevance, and hopefully, I'll get ...

  • 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, ...

  • Magazine Interview for Tech Article

    I recently had the privilege of being quoted for a technical article in BizTech Magazine, which is published on behalf of CDW.   This is not the first time I have had the opportunity to contribute to an article, but this is the first time (other than the webcast) that I have had my photo taken for a magazine.  Too cool!  ...

  • My Updated LinkedIn Feature Requests

    The month of February 2008 was a very busy one at LinkedIn, it seems.  A number of improvements and modifications were made to the site, including network upgrades which now show Group Membership changes, a much maligned News function, and a major graphical overhaul of the User Interface. So far, I'm liking the new interface, which takes a ...
