Starting Over…

It’s time to start over with this whole blogging thing.  But it was important (to me at least) to figure out why this one died such a horrible death when it had so much potential.  And I realized, that it’s because of the darn namespace – “blogs.technet.com”…sort of puts a damper on this things when…

ADFS Documentation

Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a blog where someone was posting documentation about ADFS? Well looky here – apparently this has been around for a while, but since I just recently discovered it I thought I’d share… http://blogs.technet.com/adfs_documentation/

Who’s on… huh?

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, “Who’s on First?” might have turned out something like this: COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store.

First Post with Live Writer

Don’t expect a whole lot here – I just installed Live Writer and wanted to see what it was going to be like. Feels vaguely similar to Onenote, which is good, since I like Onenote – I think I’ll keep it… maybe it will help me blog more often. This post will self destruct in 5…

ADFS and Domain Admins (or anyone else for that matter)

I spend a lot of time answering questions or making comments in e-mails that would make good blog posts.  So it may seem a bit cheesy (at least it does to me), but it’s turning out that reposting these e-mails seems like an easy way to do this…so here’s another one…hope you don’t mind (again,…

x64 Domain Controllers

Had an e-mail thread with Joe recently, which also resulted in this blog entry.  He’s a consultant for another big tech company, and was working with a customer that was migrating a lot of non-domain joined machines to AD as well as deploying other AD aware applications.  The net result though, is that he was…

Useful repadmin switch
