I'll think of a clever title one day. Today's not that day. Tomorrow's not looking good either.

  • Another access based enumeration mention.....

    WS2003 Service Pack 1 brings with it all sorts of goodies. I’ll try and mention many of the AD ones over the next few weeks, but one I can’t help but mention sooner rather than later is access based enumeration. Rather than digging in to the feature,...
  • And sometimes, blogging really is that hard

    Time for an aside….hang on. This post is going to sound absurd. I swear to you it is true. I have this friend who asked to not be identified…..let’s call him “Brett Shirley” for the time being. And just to put it in perspective, let’s assume this “Brett...
  • Go from 32bit Windows to 64bit for no cost? Really?

    Today we put out this page which talks about upgrading to the x64 Windows. Here’s the best part: The Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Technology Advancement Program enables customers who have purchased Windows XP Professional (32-bit) to exchange...
  • Dell shipping with an AMD chip?

    Who knows, but Slashdot mentioned that it just might happen, according to this article on The Inquirer, who quoted this article on ComputerWorld.com . I’m often asked about x64, and whether I recommend Intel vs. AMD chips in the space. The reality is...
  • SDL here, there and everywhere

    I've read quite a bit re: the SDL as of late in the universe. First, we put out this doc which talks about what the SDL is, and how it works. Then, RHensing tells us what his new gig is, and how it involves the SDL. And I've since seen a few mentions...
  • Nope, sorry, not today.....

    Today Dell commented on the rumors around shipping with an AMD chip. In a word, no . Not shocking, but good to hear the yea/nea from the horses mouth rather than the rumor mill. Me? I still don’t mind either way. I like Intel and AMD chips, or anyone...
  • Has anyone run AD (or ADAM) where the db and logs are on an iSCSI device?

    Over on his blog, my mgr Bryce mentions the new iSCSI evaluation going on here in the EEC . I for one don't really understand iSCSI at all. I'm not a hardware guy. :) However, I do like to talk about directory performance, and I've never seen either AD...
  • A little iSCSI time

    Over on the EEC blog I just posted that I'll be working with iSCSI some. This is a new area for me, one I'm not really all that familiar with. Quite honestly, I'm not much of a hardware guy, so I suspect I'll be asking the hardware guys for help. :) But...
  • Got a chance to get to the bloggers meeting at Crossroads.....

    I saw the Scoble post on the event down at Crossroads, and just felt the need to check it out. It was my first bloggers meeting of sort, and I really had no idea what to expect. :) All in all, very cool. There were a nice mix of people there….a few from...
