Well, it lasted two years. Now there's no more digital edition either. RIP

Windows 8: Death by a Thousand Cuts? Commented on: 1 year ago (December 18, 2012) It's not just that they grafted a smartphone/tablet-oriented GUI onto a desktop OS. They also grafted it onto their Server OS. Try to bring up the WS2012 Start menu in a Remote Desktop session...
Monitoring Server Core Event Logs Commented on: 5 years ago (October 3, 2009) Nice article on the woefully underdocumented xpath syntax. Note that the double quotes around the /q parameter are only necessary if you have a space in there, or are using PowerShell (in which case...

Vendor Briefings - 01 Dec 2004 Commented on: 9 years ago (February 14, 2005) These new ads that require us to click through to reach the article are pretty annoying for us subscribers who are already paying to see this content!
Just Say No to Notepad Commented on: 10 years ago (October 1, 2004) Also missing was Microsoft Script Editor, which comes free with Microsoft Office! It's like Primal Script lite, with color coding and IntelliSense. The online documentation isn't great, but the price...
Rem: Reading Files’ and Folders’ Security Settings Commented on: 10 years ago (September 17, 2004) Great script! I need this to programmatically determine whether "Allow inheritable permissions..." is turned on, since neither XCACLS.EXE nor XCACLS.VBS reports this. I modified the script to accept...
