Working with Active Directory and Windows Small Business Server 2008
I have to say that in most of my time as a network engineer I have had the opportunity to play with servers, but mostly it's been to put our management software on, and that was about it. I have been a Systems Network Engineer for about three months now, and as such I have been respnosible for the configuration of our test devices... this being said, I have had to start working through how to configure and apply such things as GPO through a new forest, domain and OU. I have configured about three ......

Technology vs. Antiquated Methods
So Here I am talking with my Program lead, about technology, and how while my father is the VP of a major company, he still doesn't have a blackberry, or a smart phone. and I think it's funny. Most people would say it's a generational thing. That because he's older, he dosen't accept technology, and that's why. I have trouble swallowing that because this is the same man, who bought a satellite radio for his car, and made sure that the printer for the house was networked so that his and my mom's laptop ......

Memory Glutton
I have to admit that I can't get enough storage. I have hard drives just sitting around in case I need to move somthing, or I'm going to a friends and either they want something I have or I want something they might have. What I'm going to talk about today is cost effective memory for devices. I don't know how this particualr device will work in a camera, as That's not what I use in my camera, in fact I don't have a camera that doesn't either use SD, or the old compact flash card, that's not so compact ......

Can you say Reverse Telnet?
So I am a Network Engineer, and something that has always been troubling me is this concept of Reverse Telnet. The theory is that from a router that you can connect to, you can use the aux port of that router to connect or "Telnet" into another router or devices' console port. Pretty simple concept, however everyone and their brother posts and says for this to work you need a straight thru cable... (568A, or 568B cat 5, 5e, or 6) Pretty simple concept... I know... but what these idgits seem to have ......

Cellular device WIFI Capability
I don't know about the IPhone, because I don't have one, and I'm willing to bet that most of you won't be able to answer this either; but here's a scenario. You have your phone unlocked so that you can use another GSM SIM in your phone... say you are going to Europe, and want to use a prepaid SIM card. Here's a limitation I found on the BlackBerry Storm 2. If you take out the Verizon/Vodafone SIM that comes with the phone, you loose WIFI capability. The moment you put in another SIM the phone removes ......

Todays Contracting word of the Day
So I just got into work this morning, to find out that our Customer has yet to pay for our next installment on our contract. What does this mean? This means that I learn a new term... - Forced PTO. This is where there is no money to pay you for the rest of the "Term" until the money hits, and since it's illegal to charge against money that isn't there, then you are "Suggested" to take PTO. For those of you that are unclear, PTO is Paid Time Off. It's basically paid leave, and you only get so much ......

Welcome to the Grind
Are you seriously taking the time to read this? Who exactly do you think you are? You have got to be kidding me. Anyway, I am a very opinionated individual, who likes intelligent conversation as well as constructive criticism. I am not always right. That being said, I am almost always right. I tend to do my research before opening my mouth, as I don't like to look like an idiot. I hope you enjoy my Blog. This is going to have no real focus, as I don't really have any focus' I Image that I will be ......
