Tony, I admire your courage, honesty and integrity. Thank you for bringing this issue up. This is a very useful "heads up" article.

Personally, I did not find the video disrespectful. Also, instead of childish, I found it heartwarming.

I am from Greece. Other people from my country or from different countries may have...

Tony, thank you for sharing this information. You see, it is not immediately obvious what the preferred architecture is for each Exchange Server version. Your blog post, Ross Smith IV's blog post...

So, NAP fostered a more reactive model, whereas now the model of protection for devices that connect to the network can be more proactive.

Rod, you are raising some important subjects here. I personally believe that the open source model is flawed.

Thank you for informing us about Aidan Finn's blog post and quote. His blog...

Perhaps I misunderstood something, but I disagree with the author. Here is what I think:

Lync DNS load balancing *is* the traditional round-robin DNS.

In the round-robin DNS...

The Network/Validate Network Communication test report shows that that NODE1 doesn't have a network adapter defined as MGMT. But it should have showed that NODE2 (instead of NODE1) doesn't have a...

@Evan: You are correct and that makes me incorrect. Of course they are early Nobel laureates. Thus "Fischer" is Hermann Emil Fischer and "Ross" is Ronald Ross. I guess I was only correct about the...

"Fischer" refers to the famous chemist Franz Joseph Emil Fischer, not Bobby Fischer. "Curies" refer to the famous chemists Pierre and Marie Curie, not the units of radioactivity that have been...

I don't think I understand. This article and Kerio's press release name Kerio's cloud offering as a "private cloud" offering. But the way this offering is described leads me to...

Paul, you write "Users should also consider configuring IE...". It is not "also", it is "either/or". I say this because the High setting does disable Active Scripting. I...

Michael, there is a typo. It's "Data DEduplication". See what happens when Tim Cook's name is mentioned?

Oops, wait "Desperate Housewives" is not a sitcom. Stupid me!
Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 20:50
Paul, I know that by "silly sitcom" you mean "Desperate Housewives" and I despise you for that. (No, not really. I forgive you:))
Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 19:44
No, no, no, no, no. You are not walking away from this so easily, sir. You have to tell us now: what do *you* think about the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance"? What is your opinion...

Listing 3 calls the function FindParentMessage passing myMsg, which is the reply message. The function FindParentMessage has the purpose of finding the parent message of myMsg. In listing 4, we see...

If you're using RSA's SecurID technology, take (Lock)heed.

I have just read a blog entry titled "InsecureID: No more secrets?" at http://www.cringely.com/2011/05/insecureid-no-more-secrets/...

OpenID may have a downside, as well. Please refer to:
Anyway, since WindowsITPro magazine supports the...

Excellent article! Also, Steve Planks presentation (that the article mentions and provides a link) is fantastic! All readers should view the presentation, since it depicts all the steps thoroughly...

Hi, Paul. I do not know if your assumptions are indeed correct. Please refer to:

@Whitlow: I found this article to be clever and funny. And, perhaps, it can also be useful.
It can make us think that if we do not enter all the digits of a year, some ambiguity will exist....

Happy '11 to you, too, John! Seriously though (what can I say?), you are right. And we are not completely without problems until 9999, either. There is a less serious problem than Y2K was, but a...

Mark Minasi gives us excellent advice when he instructs us to generalize the images with Sysprep. We would not want to deploy the same non-syspreped VHD to more than one machine. For example, the...

I think that this article is excellent. I also think that Darren Mar-Elia's criticism may be unfounded.
First of all, the author did not really touch the subject of CSE versioning.

Steve Jobs, are you reading this article? Well, good for you. So there.

The article states that a /48 allocation lets you have 32,768 /64 subnets.
The correct number is 2 to the sixteenth, which is 65,536 /64 subnets.

To make matters clearer, I would...

I absolutely agree with you on that, Paul.
