  • 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 ...

  • Get your dose of Vista Service Pack 1

    If you're a 64-bit Vista user, that is...  It looks as though the users of Vista x64 can obtain Service Pack 1 via Windows Update. I've already started down the MSDN path for obtaining the Service Pack, but that has presented its own set of issues.  (TechNet is also another option for obtaining the Service Pack for x86 or x64 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vista Upgrade Speed Bumps

    In today's lesson, we learn why pre-planning is very important... So, I try to perform the dreaded in-place upgrade of my XP x64 laptop to Vista Ultimate x64, after doing all the nice things like backing everything up, and ensuring that all apps will be suitable, and what have you.  It's a new laptop, so I'm not worried about clutter or ...

  • Getting Rolling With Vista

    As I mentioned earlier this week, I finally got my hands on my official copies of Vista, so I thought I'd see how well an upgrade would work out. Granted, it's not the 64-bit edition that I wanted to deploy, but it game me a chance to see how well Vista would upgrade over a year-old Windows XP installation.    Well, it took longer ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vista: Here it comes...

    Or rather, there it goes -- off to manufacturing. It will be very interesting to see how stable Windows Vista is in real-world deployments, but it is certainly is a highly anticipated release of the Windows operating system. So, is the world ready for Vista?  We'll soon find out.  At least, some folks will find out by the end of ...

  • Minor System Upgrade

    I was forced to upgrade one of my systems this week because the motherboard (or CPU) died.  Rather than mess around trying to figure out which specific component was impacted, I ran over to NewEgg (virtually, of course), and picked up a new AMD Sempron 3400+ CPU and a Gigabyte Socket 754 motherboard for cheap to replace the previous Athlon ...
