One of my favorite things about Firefox is the Adblock/Filterset.G extension combination. I don’t mind some ads, but when most of the pages I go to have more whirling and spinning that a county fair, it makes me motion-sick! The 1-2 punch of Adblock and Filterset.G knock ads out, and keeps them out (without you […]
This summer we installed Identity Manager on one of our NetWare boxes, and anticipated loads of extra free time from a reduced user management work Allow for user password self-service Sync GroupWise passwords with NDS passwords Import staff accounts into AD from NDS Users expect to be able to reset their own passwords with a […]
It’s finally starting to calm down from our datacenter upgrade. The new APC racks are in, the servers are all re-configured and installed in the racks. It’s been an incredible journey, and I for one am glad it’s nearly over. We ran into just about every problem we could – fiber was broken (over 16 […]
Unless you are living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Skype offering free calls to the US and Canada for the rest of this year. While I think that open systems, based on SIP, like Project Gizmo are going to be the winners in the long run, you can’t beat free. With the free […]

The server hosting our Groupwise Webaccess kept abending, and Novell recommended that I not run mod_hdirs, mod_auth_edir, webaccess and a couple of other oddities on […]
StatCounter is by far my favorite log analysis software. It’s free, easy to use, and gives you great info about the visitors to your site.
If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make noise? If you have a great website, and no one goes to it, is it still a great website? The point is, if you don’t know who is going to your site, and why, you can’t adjust […]
